Game Preview: Warriors at Raptors - 3/4/12
  • LAST TIME OUT
    Playing in Philadelphia on the 50th Anniversary of Wilt Chamberlains 100-point game, the Warriors struggled in the second half and wound up on the losing end of a 105-83 contest against the 76ers. With both teams paying tribute to the historic anniversary, the 76ers pulled away in the third quarter and never looked back. David Lee tallied 24 points and 15 rebounds while Monta Ellis scored 20. FULL GAME RECAP


  • WARRIORS VS. RAPTORS
    Golden State has won their last five games against Toronto and seven of eight overall while winning their past two contests in Toronto. The Warriors have gone 6-3 over their past nine road games vs. Toronto at Air Canada Centre after registering a 1-5 record in their first six games. Monta Ellis has averaged 24.1 points, 4.0 assists and 3.1 rebounds in seven games against the Raptors, marking the second highest point average against any opponent in Ellis career.


  • HISTORIC ANNIVERSARY
    Friday's matchup was played on the 50th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game. Chamberlain achieved that feat as a member of the Philadelphia Warriors, so it's quite a coincidence that the Warriors played the Sixers on that day.


  • DOUBLING DOWN
    Warriors forward David Lee has taken his game to a new level as of late, posting back-to-back games with at least 20 points and 10 rebounds. He has 11 20-10 games this season and he currently ranks ninth in the NBA with 18 double-doubles.


  • THREE-POINT TROUBLES
    In the three games since the All-Star Break, the Warriors have struggled to make shots. They have yet to shoot better than 41 percent from the field and they've been uncharacterisically poor from 3-point range, shooting a combined 17.3 percent (9-for-52). Should they shoot their normal percentages the Warriors are seventh in the NBA in scoring and eighth in field goal percentage they should have a chance to beat a Raptors team that has lost six of its last eight games.
