Here are the scores, updates, and results of the NBA 2020-2021 regular season match between the Golden State Warriors (GSW) and the Toronto Raptors (TOR) on January 11, 2021, at the Chase Center.
The Golden State Warriors held on to defeat the Toronto Raptors, 106-105.
Seven Warriors players finished in double-figures with Andrew Wiggins, netting 17 points, 4 blocks, and 4 assists, leading the balanced scoring attack.
This was Draymond Green’s best game of the season. Green finished just shy of a triple-double with 10 points, nine rebounds, and 10 assists, keeping the offense going by setting up teammates for easy buckets throughout the game.
With the Warriors struggling to score over the final six minutes of the contest, Green came up with a big play when he found Kent Bazemore for an easy lay-in with just over a minute to go that put the Dubs up 104-103.
In a post-game interview, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr said: “[Bazemore’s] been fantastic. Eric Paschall has really given us that scoring punch. I thought Brad Wanamaker was really, really good tonight. And Damion Lee has now basically won two games for us.”
“Really, really happy with the defense and the second unit. Those were the two things we were trying to lock in at the beginning of camp,” added Kerr.
For their part, Curry, who considerably had an off-night, added 11 points, 9 rebounds, and 6 assists while rookie James Wiseman finished with 10 points and 7 rebounds.
Meanwhile, Damion Lee hit a pair of clutch free throws with 4.3 seconds left as the Dubs hung on for their sixth win in the tourney.
Pascal Siakam, who paced the Raptors with 25 points and 11 rebounds, had a chance to win it for the Raptors, but his 20-foot jumper from the top of the key rimmed out as time expired.
Houston Rockets’ Fred VanVleet added 21 points and 5 assists in a losing effort, and Kyle Lowry contributed 17 points, 9 rebounds, and 6 assists.
Toronto Raptors, who fall to 2 wins and 7 defeats, will face the Portland Trail Blazers next, on January 11, 2021 (Manila time), while the Golden State Warriors, who move to 6 wins and 4 defeats, will face the Indiana Pacers on January 13, 2021.
