The Raptors were left in a state of shock early on by Golden State on Saturday night at the Air Canada Centre, a feeling that is all too familiar in the National Basketball Association whenever the Warriors provide the opposition.

The were playing their fifth game in eight days, their third game in four days and the second of a back-to-back set.

The Warriors did not make it easy Saturday night, but they still escaped with a 127-125 victory over the Toronto Raptors to secure their 12th consecutive road win. It's just how things go: once you reach a certain level of dominance, indifference among fans will nearly be non-existent - people will either love you or hate you. Curry made up for his earlier misses by hitting two free throws with 2.5 seconds left.

Stephen Curry returned to the floor after missing two games and sunk a pair of free throws to seal the victory with 2.5 seconds remaining. They scored 81 first-half points, their season high for any half. After half the players on the court went scrambling for a loose ball, it was initially ruled out of bounds on Curry.

Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 26 points, while Durant finished with 25 points, six rebounds and five assists. Golden State comes to Toronto in a back-to-back situation after defeating the Milwaukee Bucks 108-94 in Milwaukee on Friday night. "Some of those calls were bad".

The Raptors, who came into the game averaging an offensive rebounding percentage of 22.5, had an absurd mark of 40.9 and held the Cavaliers to an effective field goal percentage of 0.416 (below their season average of 0.550).

"We had the ball going the other way in that situation so I've got to look at that".

"And I have all the respect in the world for our officials, but when you go in and have that situation, guys fighting their hearts out ... again, maybe they thought we didn't deserve it the way we played in the first half, I don't know".

Bench mob: Toronto's reserves had a heck of a night against Cleveland on Thursday.

"No sour taste at all", Thompson said of how they won.

"They played great. I give them credit", Kerr said.

With the way that Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston, and David West backed their teammate, you could feel that the fan must have said something nasty.
