Curry, who has missed the past two games, is officially listed as probable on the team injury report.

Fred VanVleet's three-pointer at the buzzer rounded out the scoring.

Fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson had 20, fellow MVP award victor Kevin Durant had 15 and Draymond Green had 12 points, eight assists and was an absurd +33 as the visitors built a 26-point lead on a group of Raptors that had just throttled Cleveland and had the East's best home record. Trouble is, the remainder of Toronto's lineup accounted for the remaining 16 points as the Warriors shot a sizzling 73.9 per cent from the field (17-of-23) and 5-of-9 from three-point range.
