It was a competitive game throughout though, with Golden State leading 91-86 heading into the fourth quarter.

Thompson poured in 20 first-half points as Golden State used a 25-4 flurry bridging the first and second periods by pull away en route to an 81-54 halftime lead. The Warriors were led by Curry's 30 points, while Kevin Durant added 29 points and Klay Thompson scored 22 points.

This was the kind of game and backdrop when Kyle Lowry was needed, but the Raptors' starting point guard continues to be sidelined with a bruised tailbone. Serge Ibaka returns to the lineup after missing the previous game to serve a one-game suspension.

Falcons QB Matt Ryan seeks happy homecoming in Philly
Gagnon writes Alford outplayed Desmond Trufant and Keanu Neal in the Falcons secondary Saturday against the Los Angeles Rams. Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz knows Ryan's ability to handle the blitz as an experienced veteran quarterback.

Golden State Warriors forward Omri Casspi (back) is listed as questionable in the game notes for Saturday's game against the Toronto Raptors.

DeMar DeRozan scored 42 points for the Raptors, but the Warriors had just enough to beat Toronto for the eighth straight time.

The Warriors rank second in offensive rating and fourth in defensive rating this season, and they'll provide a stiff test for a Raptors team that has won seven of their past eight games.

All together, the apps-which include gaming- and drawing-related titles-were downloaded between 3 million and 7 million times. In December, YouTube said that Google was planning to increase the number of staff reviewing videos to more than 10,000.

The Raptors don't get much respect Stateside because of the team's record of playoff stumbles, but there is no question that Toronto has been an elite regular-season team for years now. He participated in practice Thursday night in Milwaukee with no problems and lobbied to play Friday against the Bucks, but was held out for precautionary reasons.

Fred VanVleet's three-pointer at the buzzer rounded out the scoring. He's averaging 27.9 points and 6.4 assists per contest in 28 games this season.  Toronto lost for just the third time in 18 home games this season. The Raptors are 15-2 on the Air Canada Centre floor this season.

The Raptors were left in a state of shock early on by Golden State on Saturday night at the Air Canada Centre, a feeling that is all too familiar in the National Basketball Association whenever the Warriors provide the opposition.

Forecast: Cold today, snow possible Sunday
Friday Night: A chance of showers and thunderstorms before 7 p.m., then a slight chance of rain between 7 p.m. and 1 a.m. There's a 20 percent chance of snow after midnight on Saturday along with increasing clouds and a low around 11 degrees.
