Raptors Dominated in Game 4
The Warriors were aiming to tie the series up at two games apiece in Game 4 and had the lead at halftime, but the Raptors dominated after intermission and cruised to the 105-92 win. Kawhi Leonard was fantastic, finishing with 36 points, 12 rebounds and four steals. Serge Ibaka played a pivotal role off the bench with 20 points in 22 minutes of play.
Klay Thompson returned to the court after missing Game 3 with a hamstring strain and didn’t show any ill effects, finishing with a team-best 28 points on 11-of-18 shooting from the floor, including 6-of-10 from three-point range. Steph Curry had 27 points but the Warriors didn’t have enough scoring help from the others on the team, which has been an issue in this series.
