Golden State Warriors vs Toronto Raptors Totals – NBA Finals

We expect that Warriors at led by Stephen Curry will be full throttle throughout the game. This is another elimination game and that means that Golden State will look to be on the offensive as much as possible. This being the case, the weak defense of the Warriors will most likely be even weaker, opening up the court for the Raptors. If this scenario holds true, we can expect both teams to score a lot of points.

Plus, Golden State is hitting 38.2% of their threes and the Raptors are completing 52.6% of their twos. In this NBA Finals, the Warriors are scoring 39 points per game from the arc and beyond, while Toronto is good for 53 points when shooting two-pointers. That’s 92 points right there. Add another 36 in threes by the visiting team, and you’re well on the way to over 200 points with the total being 128. There’s also 47 points per game in twos by the Warriors for a total of 175 points. With both teams totaling 42 PPG in frees, we’ve hit 217 points. Note, in this series, the Raptors are averaging 111.0 PPG and the Warriors 105.

Warriors vs Raptors – Players

More than half of Golden State’s points in this series are coming from the backcourt combo of Curry and Klay Thompson. We anticipate Thompson tossing up plenty of bombs, as he’s good from the three-point mark more than 57% of the time. They will get points from their guys in the paint but not as many as they might if Kevin Durant were healthy and able to play.

The Raptors have a lot of scoring depth, as six of their players are averaging double-digits in each game. SF Kawhi Leonard is averaging 29.8 PPG. Pascal Siakam is good for 18.6 PPG. Centers Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka have been very effective, as they are averaging 13.8 and 10.6 PPG respectively. The starting backcourt is putting up 27 PPG.

Five Factors – Over/Under

  1. Curry and Thompson must be on target for Warriors
  2. Toronto front men need to control boards and hit shots
  3. Expect Golden State to control pace of the game, which should be up-tempo
  4. Golden state bench can be productive
  5. Basic contributions needed from Raptors’ in the back
