The Warriors are on a back-to-back and resting players is always a possibility.

Golden State is on the second night of a back-to-back to begin a hard five-game road trip.

With Curry still sidelined by a right ankle injury, the Warriors clamped down on defense and did most of their damage on the other end in the lane.

Thompson poured in 20 first-half points as Golden State used a 25-4 flurry bridging the first and second periods by pull away en route to an 81-54 halftime lead.

"With all the guys that are out, we're just trying to hold the fort", coach Doc Rivers said.

"I kind of heard quite a bit this year that we should only get three max, but I don't see why not four?"

Randle, a Dallas native, had 23 points and 15 rebounds.

The Warriors are 31-6 when they reach the century mark, while the Raptors are 28-5.

Defensive tackle Jurrell Casey is next on their list with 6.0 sacks of his own , which is rare for an interior defensive lineman. However, in this game, he needs to be not only solid on the field but solid in what information he can provide for his team.

LG's take on the Google Assistant-powered smart display is pretty boring
One can palpably feel it in the air that Google really really wants the Assistant to take off and become more mainstream. And the market for smart devices is exploding, even with warnings that "the internet of things" is notoriously insecure.

"We've got to keep moving the ball, we've got to stay consistent moving the ball well and get defensive stops", said guard Tony Snell (11 points).

Stephen Curry returned to the starting lineup for Golden State on Saturday night, scoring 24 points in 34 minutes of a 127-125 victory against the Toronto Raptors.

OG Anunoby added 17 points for Toronto (29-12), which suffered just its third home loss but finished a three-game homestand 1-2.

The defending National Basketball Association champions asserted dominance over the aspiring contender in the East in the fourth.

But the wheels fell off in the fourth for Golden State as Toronto slowed the Warriors' roll and closed the gap to one point in the closing moments. 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.

Brogdon drew the assignment of guarding Thompson for much of the evening.

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

Per Eric Koreen of The Athletic, DeRozan said it felt like the Raptors "were playing 5-on-8" against the Warriors and referees. After Saturday's game, the team will head to Philadelphia for a one-game trip, an afternoon game against the 76ers on Monday, before returning to the Air Canada Centre for a two-game stint next week. Raptors reserves also contributed 39 rebounds and 22 assists while shooting 53 percent form the floor and 47 percent from beyond the arc.
