For our weekly matchup we will be previewing game 3 of the 2019 NBA Finals. This game will be played at Oracle Arena, the home of the Golden State Warriors. The Raptors took game 1 of the NBA Finals, playing in Toronto, only for the Warriors to come back and steal a game on the road. With both teams getting one game a piece, who do you have winning game 3 in Golden State?

C Marc Gasol, Toronto Raptors

The Raptors gave away a chance to go up 2 games to nothing on the Warriors the last time they faced off. Their only chance to regain control of this series will be to steal a game at Oracle Arena. In game 1, the Raptors only had 10 turnovers compared to Golden State's 16. In game 2, both teams tied with 15 turnovers. I give the Raptors a small edge in the turnover department due to the Warriors' injuries to their starters and bench players. In this series, Toronto has out rebounded the Warriors, 85-80. Remember this when answering questions about rebounds. Kawhi Leonard doesn't seem 100% healthy. Can he and the supporting cast do enough to get past the Warriors on the road?

SF Andre Iguodala, Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors got a game when it mattered and now they get to be in front of their home crowd for game 2. Unfortunately the injuries just keep piling up now that Klay Thompson seems as if he will be limited in play for game 3. Despite not being full strength, Golden State has shot for 38% from three point land compared to Toronto's 33%. Considering that Golden State still has Steph Curry and are shooting slightly better, they would have the edge on questions pertaining to 3 point shots. Keep in mind that the Warriors have committed 5 more personal fouls in this series which leads them to be the likely choice in questions about fouls. Will Durant play in game 3? Will Klay Thompson be up to full strength?

It's up to the former champions to show why this is their 5th straight finals appearance with the series now tied.

Will Golden State take advantage of the home crowd or will Toronto seek revenge and steal a game of their own on the road? This series is becoming more and more competitive as the dominant Warriors deal with injuries to their squad. Boogie Cousins could become an important factor as this series goes on. Look for Toronto's bench to give them an advantage throughout the rest of this series.
