Warriors aim to regroup north of the border

( - The Golden State Warriors will try to put Thursday night's debacle against the Cleveland Cavaliers behind them on Friday when they go north of the border to take on the Toronto Raptors at Air Canada Centre.

The Warriors fell to LeBron James and company, 110-99, and are 1-2 on this road trip, which started with a loss in Indiana, and improved with a win in Washington.

Golden State will visit Boston on Sunday and Brooklyn on Monday to close out the sojourn.

On Thursday, the Warriors had no answers for James. The four-time MVP winner recorded a season-high 42 points with 11 rebounds and five assists as the Cavs continued their hot play over the Warriors.

"It was a tough game," said Steph Curry. "We played hard, had some careless turnovers, but for the most part I think we executed. Our shots didn't fall. When (LeBron) does what he did tonight, you gotta be perfect, especially on the road."

David Lee paced the Warriors with 19 points and Draymond Green added 16 points and eight rebounds. Curry was locked down for most of the night, scoring 12 of his 18 points in the first quarter en route to a 5-for-17 showing.

Klay Thompson also struggled on Thursday, going 5-for-13 for 13 points. Harrison Barnes chipped in 11 for Golden State, which shot 42.4 percent from the field on Thursday.

The Raptors have lost three in a row after starting their four-game trip with such promise. Toronto squashed the Eastern Conference-leading Atlanta Hawks by 25, then lost at Houston, New Orleans and Dallas.

After Friday's home tilt, the Raptors head to New York to face the Knicks on Saturday and Philadelphia to meet the Sixers on Monday.

On Tuesday, the Raptors fell to the Mavs, 99-92.

DeMar DeRozan scored 18 points, Greivis Vasquez supplied 14 points and Patrick Patterson provided 12 points and seven boards for Toronto, which has dropped three consecutive contests on the heels of a four-game winning streak.

Dallas seized control of the contest with an 11-1 swing during the middle stages of the fourth. Al-Farouq Aminu's turnaround jumper finished off the burst for a 97-85 Mavs margin with 4:29 left and they cruised to the finish line from there.

The Raptors committed 19 miscues that led to 20 Dallas points.

"Our fatigue turnovers got us.Turnovers were crucial, brutal, and led to baskets on the other end," Raptors coach Dwane Casey said of the second half.

The Warriors beat the Raptors by 21 at Oracle Arena on Jan. 2 and have taken three of the last five in Toronto.
