The Golden State Warriors find themselves in the unfamiliar position of being desperate for a win the NBA Finals on Friday, as a loss to the series-leading Toronto Raptors puts them in a position that, per KSL Sports, only 11 NBA teams have ever come back from to win a seven game playoff series: a 3-1 deficit.
To avoid that predicament, Golden State will need to figure out a way to stifle a runaway Toronto offense that has posted 118 points and 123 points in each of its two victories, while the Warriors, oddly, have posted identical totals of 109 in each of the three games. But they will likely need more than that to get past a hungry Raptors team in the game that will live stream from Oracle Arena.
