And the 13 straight points to end the third quarter, capped off by a 32-foot three-pointer as the clock wound down. "How hot he was and how smooth he looked out there while he was doing it".

Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson have carried the team as much as they can, but it has not always been enough; Durant had 51 points on Thursday night in Toronto, but the Raptors still prevailed 131-128 in overtime.

The Warriors, playing without injured stars Stephen Curry and Draymond Green, fell to 15-8 as they endured their fifth straight road defeat.

The Toronto Raptors have grabbed the attention of all of Canada.

Although that's a tough pill for Curry, Kerr and the rest of the Warriors to swallow, it presents a nice opportunity for Toronto. "We came up just short". "Each guy individually I think, we found a couple of lineups that can work, even when Steph gets back off the bench". "That was an wonderful game". He also had 11 rebounds and six assists. The glittering performance followed a 49-point night Monday against Orlando and 44 against Sacramento last Saturday.

"Obviously we'd like to win more games but we got a lot of experience through this time, we learned a lot about ourselves".

Jose Mourinho: It's more hard for United to buy top players
Asked if he would buy any players in January, the manager said: "Honestly, I don't think we are going to sign anyone". United face Arsenal in midweek and Mourinho is hoping to welcome back a host of first team players.

I don't know what's going to happen in the last 50-something games and I certainly have no clue what's going to happen in the playoffs and, today, I absolutely don't care.

"There's going to be some games where we've got a great team game going, we can beat people with our offence from moving our bodies, moving the ball and there's going to be some games where I've got to go and get buckets", he said after the Raptors defeat.

Lowry's 3-pointer with 55 seconds to go in the fourth quarter put the Raptors up 119-113 but Durant replied with back-to-back 3s of his own, including a game-tying shot with 8.6 seconds left.

Kyle Lowry had 10 points and 12 assists, Serge Ibaka scored 20 points and Danny Green had 13 as the Raptors snapped an eight-game losing streak against Golden State and won a contest billed as a potential NBA Finals preview.

It marks the first time in his career that Durant has totaled more than 40 points in three consecutive games and with Curry to come back Saturday following a groin strain sustained in a defeat to the Bucks on November 8 the Warriors will be looking to become more consistent. Durant seemingly had an answer for each run made by the Raptors and kept the Warriors within striking distance despite being shorthanded.
