The Toronto Raptors did everything possible to break the Golden State Warriors 11 game winning streak, but in the end, it was some mystery offensive fouls on the Raptors that gave the Warriors the extra stops they needed to come out on top.
A lot of people believed the real reason the Toronto Raptors signed Spurs free agent Cory Joseph this past summer for four years and $30 million was the kid is Canadian and good enough to be a backup point guard.
