The shorthanded Golden State Warriors were pushed around by a focused Toronto Raptors squad in Oakland, losing 123-109 to the Eastern Conference champions. Toronto has taken a 2-1 lead and bounced back from losing home court advantage.

The Raptors, who took a two-games-to-one lead in the best-of-seven series, are two wins from their first title. Game 4 is Friday night at Oracle Arena.
