Toronto Raptors vs Golden State Warriors prediction

While it is a small sample size, the Toronto Raptors have looked like a better team since the additions of Quickley and Barrett. The Golden State Warriors are getting Draymond Green back, but they've been a mess overall, which includes that loss to the Nuggets and now rumblings that players aren't happy with their situations. We could see a blowup if the Warriors don't turn things around quickly. Because of all that, I'm grabbing the points with the Raptors.
