Despite a hobbled Warriors team present for Game 3, they did not make things easy for the Raptors. They were pests defensively and fought back until the very end. Steph Curry made his mark, putting up 47 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists in the effort.
Still, with KD and Klay Thompson out, this was a must-win game for Toronto — and they took advantage of it. Kawhi and Lowry led the team to the 123 point win, followed up by Danny Green with 18 points on 6-10 shooting from three.

Although the Raptors certainly proved they are capable of winning the series, Game 4 might prove more challenging than anything they have seen so far. If Durant and Klay return, there is no telling how much damage they can do to the Raptors.
If Toronto is to win the series, they need another all-around effort from their guys. They will also have to be on the same page defensively.
As both teams prepare for Game 4, they will be looking for their stars to step up. For the Raptors, it means they cannot shy away from the spotlight. For the Warriors, it means being healthy and on the court.
