NBA Finals 2019: Raptors vs. Warriors Game 3 Predictions. Who Do You Think Will Win And Why?

Those injuries may hinder the Warriors' hopes of a third consecutive title. They still don't have Kevin Durant back after suffering a calf injury in the second round against the Houston Rockets, and while there is talk he could be back in the series, there are no definitive plans for him to return for Game 3 Wednesday night.

Despite the numerous injuries, the Warriors are three-point favorites, per VegasInsider.com. The total in the game is listed at 227.

Thompson was seen limping after the game with ice on his hamstring. He told ESPN's Rachel Nichols he plans on playing in Game 3, and the injury is not as severe as the high ankle sprain he had in last year's championship series against the Cleveland Cavaliers. He did not miss a game in that series.

The Raptors know they missed an opportunity to take a 2-0 lead in the series as a result of their play at the start of the third quarter.

"Third quarter we didn't play well enough. We missed too many shots,"  Raptors guard Kyle Lowry said, per Brian Mahoney of the Associated Press (h/t NBA.com). "They got out in transition and got a little confidence going. We lost the game there."

If Thompson is able to play in Game 3 and Durant comes back at some point before the final game is played, it may be turn out to be the point where the Raptors lost the series.

Thompson is a Warrior, both in terms of the team he plays for and the mindset he brings to his team on a nightly basis. If he has anything to say about it, he will play in Game 3 against the Raptors and will play effectively.

He has proved his mettle in championship situations time and time again, and there is no reason to think he will fall short here.

The same goes for Curry. He had reeled off six straight games with 30 points or more before Game 2, but the thought of him failing to reach that level at home is unlikely.

This is the last series the Warriors will play at Oracle Arena, as they will move to the Chase Center in San Francisco next season.

Every game in the NBA Finals at Oracle will be emotional, and the Warriors know how to win those games. Toronto had its opportunity to take control of the series, and they let Golden State wriggle free. 

The Warriors will win and cover in Game 3.

New Study Suggests People Who Seek to Be Close With God View the Bible More Literally

Sociologists have long suggested that Christian women are more religious than men, but Blake Victor Kent wondered if this discrepancy has something to do with gender differences and intimacy.A former pastor who grew up in the evangelical church, Kent took interest in how gender roles were articulated abstractly but then lived out differently. He saw a disconnect. For example, he noticed that some evangelicals draw firm theological boundaries around formal leadership but then allow women to lead informally all the time.During graduate school, some prominent research on gender caught Kent’s eye and made him wonder if sociologists were missing part of the story. A study by John Hoffmann and John Bartkowski found that women are more likely than men to view the Bible as the literal Word of God. The authors viewed this result as a comment on female social standing in the church, a…See More
