The Warriors maintained control through the third and led by 10 heading into the final frame. The Raptors began the fourth on a 9-2 run to cut it to a three-point game with seven minutes remaining, but the Warriors held their ground and confidently closed out the win.
The Warriors had five players score in double figures, as Moses Moody tallied 14 points, while Justinian Jessup and Gary Payton II chipped in 13 points apiece. Kyle Guy added 11 points off the bench, including 3-for-4 free throws in the final 23 seconds to help close it out.
Meanwhile, the Raptors had six players score in double digits, led by Malachi Flynn’s 16 points on 6-for-19 shooting.
