I believe many fans and media personalities have failed to really understand how good the Raptors are. I do not for an instant think the Warriors themselves have been under any misapprehension at all. I think they take the Raptors very seriously indeed.

Prior to the series starting one media outlet quoted an unnamed Warriors player as saying "why the fuck are we such big favourites?" They're consummate pros and defending champs and you don't get that if you're in the habit of taking opponents lightly. Steve Kerr would ball-punch anyone who did that.

"Well, Game 3 was a writeoff but Klay will be back" is just staying optimistic.
