They really, really could use Kevin Durant, though.
I would also suggest that the Raptors' quickness had something to do with the Warriors turnovers and bad shooting. The Warriors didn't look like they had the same advantage in terms of quickness that they've had against other teams. Perhaps some of that is due to rust and maybe the Warriors struggled to adjust to the pace of a real game after being off for so long.
