Fixture: Toronto Raptors vs Golden State Warriors - NBA Season 2020-21
Date & Time: Sunday, January 10, 2021, 8:30 PM ET

Golden State Warriors Preview
The Golden State Warriors are coming off an impressive comeback win against the LA Clippers. At one point, the Warriors found themselves down 22 points in the third quarter. However, thanks to Stephen Curry's tremendous 3-point shooting, Golden State came back and won 115-105.
Despite the Warriors' comeback win on Friday night, they still have large gaps in their play that need to be filled if they are to earn a high playoff seed in the Western Conference.
Aside from Stephen Curry, the Golden State Warriors, have converted on just five of 23 3-pointers in their last two performances.
Key Player - Stephen Curry
Stephen Curry is the key player for the Golden State Warriors. If Curry has a good day, then the Warriors will have a chance to win.
When Curry scores 30 or more points, Golden State is 5-0; they are 0-4 when he fails to reach that mark.
If Curry can maintain his 30.6 points per game against the Toronto Raptors, then the Warriors will move into third place in the Western Conference after a victory over the Raptors on Sunday night.
Golden State Warriors Predicted Lineup
Toronto Raptors Preview
The Toronto Raptors had a dominating road victory over the Sacramento Kings, 144-123, Friday night. The 144 points scored for the Raptors is the record for most points scored in regulation for the 26-year-old franchise.
In the Raptors' historic performance, they were able to score from all positions on the court. The 2019 NBA Champions had six players score in double digits.
If the Toronto Raptors can continue to get production from all five positions against the Golden State Warriors, they will finish their Northern California road trip 2-0.
Key Player - Fred VanVleet
Fred VanVleet is the key player for the Toronto Raptors. The starting point guard is coming off a season-high 34 point performance against the Kings.
If VanVleet can outplay Stephen Curry on Sunday night and be the best player on the court, the Raptors will earn their third win of the season.
