Steve Kerr Says Warriors 'Didn't Bring It' in Loss to Raptors

Los Angeles Clippers vs Toronto Raptors

Oracle Arena had won the battle rather handily over the years, but in the final shot at this building - barring a meeting with the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Final next May - the Raptors got the last laugh.

Leading the way for the Raptors in Kawhi Leonard's absence, Lowry stuffed the stat sheet with an impressive line of 23 points, 12 assists, five rebounds and three steals. Executives from the Clippers have also been spotted at many Golden State Warriors games that did not involve L.A.

Warriors star Stephen Curry, who tied a season-low mark with 10 points on 3-of-12 shooting, refused to put much stock into the regular-season affairs and said it will have no bearing if the teams meet in June.

Kyle Lowry had a team-high 23 points and 12 assists in a win over the Warriors on Wednesday night.

This was a potential NBA Finals preview between two teams viewed as the best in their respective conferences. Even little-used Greg Monroe was pressed into action after a nasty thumb injury to Jonas Valanciunas, and Monroe scored five points and pulled down five rebounds in seven minutes.

Greg Monroe, the little-used big man with tons of National Basketball Association experience stepped into the void and gave the Raptors a solid seven minutes (five points and five boards), allowing Serge Ibaka to stay fresh, and the Raptors bigs to get through the rest of the game unscathed. He went through the shootaround before the matchup in Los Angeles, but was still sore. "Move it, swing it, play with some pace", Lowry said. We didn't let them (rest). "I have been here a long time, and we have always said next man up". But despite all of the good that surrounds the Raptors right now, one of their major offseason acquisitions - someone who knows what it takes for a team to win a championship - doesn't think Toronto is there quite yet.

It was Toronto's first win at Oracle Arena since 2004, after 13 consecutive losses.

"Once they started missing a little bit, it took some of their confidence and you could tell they were tired from Monday night", Green said. They were playing their second game in as many nights on the road.
