The Raptors made a late fourth quarter push in Golden State on Wednesday, turning a double-digit deficit into a five-point game, but could not complete the comeback, thanks to Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green being incredible. Durant finished with 22 points, 17 rebounds, seven assists and six blocks, staring down DeMar DeRozan -- who passed Chris Bosh to become the franchise’s all-time leader in points — late in the fourth quarter after one of his rejections, which, well:

Curry finished with 28 points, Thompson added 21, and Green was — as usual -- all over the floor, finishing with 14 points, six rebounds, 10 assists and two steals and two blocks.

DeRozan (29 points) and Lowry (27 points) combined for 56 points and Terrence Ross contributed 24 points on 23 shots, but it was not enough against a Warriors team coming off their Christmas Day loss in Cleveland, and looking to start another win streak at home. Golden State is now 28-5, while Toronto falls to 22-9, suffering just their fourth loss on the road this season.

It’s onto Phoenix for the Raptors tomorrow. By the way:
