(Rich Quiñones) – The Golden State Warriors head into game three of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors a wounded team Wednesday Night. But just like a wounded animal that is backed in the corner, the Warriors have proven time and time again they can and typically do respond.
The have the luxury of playing the next two games back home at Oracle Arena, but once again will be without All-Star forward Kevin Durant, calf injury. They are also dealing with Klay Thompson, who is nursing a tender hamstring and he might be a last minute decision.
Golden State has also lost forward Keon Looney, who has seen his role grow during these playoffs especially after Durant went down. But if there is one thing the Warriors know how to do is bounce back from adversity. They still have one of the most feared scorers in the game in Steph Curry, they still have Draymond Green and even a banged up Andre Iguodala, who can knock down a clutch shot here and there, should be enough to at least split two games at home. Best case scenario, is Golden State heads back to Toronto up 3-1, with a chance to close out the Raptors. And that is something the Warriors know how to do, end a series.
