If Durant can somehow play through the injury and even be a shell of his healthy self, this series is far from over. Throughout Durant's recovery from this calf injury Kerr has made it clear that the superstar forward would have to go through a full practice before returning to action. "Obviously they're playing really good basketball right now, but we know this thing's not over yet".

VanVleet was felled by an accidental elbow from Golden State's Shaun Livingston in the fourth quarter of the Raptors' 105-92 victory Friday, leaving him bloodied and flat on his back. Despite the Warriors having a wealth of players who have playoff experience, some of their younger core do not.

It's still unclear whether Kevin Durant will play in the NBA Finals, though he does seem to be getting closer.

French Open play hit by rain wash-out

"It's win or go home for us - we've got no choice but to go out there and be as focused as we can", Bogut said.

"That's what I did from that point on, bet on myself and trust that I really felt what I was doing and really believed in it". In the 1,175 Raptors games since, the most anyone has scored against them is 51 points - done twice, done both times in Toronto, and done both times by Durant. So it would be pretty storybook if he could come back and help us do the same. I know how badly he wants to be out there.

"If he plays, he's an MVP, he's an All-NBA player, he's an All-Star, Finals MVP", Raptors guard Kyle Lowry said.

Through four games in the championship series, he is averaging 13.3 points and 6.8 assists. "So if anything, it will be on me to make sure that I report everything and tell them how I'm feeling". The line was down to as low as Toronto -1.5 Sunday at some sportsbooks. The series price was down to Toronto -575 as of Sunday at Caesars Sportsbook.

Warriors down 3-1 in NBA Finals
The Raptors' speed and length are what should propel them to a title unless the Warriors have a historic comeback left. And then it's possible that Durant, a free-agent-in-waiting, has played for the Warriors for the last time.
