The Warriors were thrown for a loop with Thompson’s injury and now are caught in little bit of a bind. They still have the mentality of a title contender due to Curry and Green, yet also are in transition with the rookie Wiseman and, to an extent, Oubre, who’ll be asked to supply production for a winner. Can that transition be smooth and quick? Curry is just too good for this to quality as a bridge year until Thompson returns, which suggests the soldiers will prosper, but maybe to not the extent or extent they’re wont to .
The Raptors could certainly remain at or near the highest of the Eastern Conference. The defense should remain one among the league’s most disruptive units, and therefore the continued development of both Siakam and Anunoby offers some hope for an offense that took a step backward last season. Of course, the highest of the East promises to be more crowded this year, Lowry turns 35 in March, and therefore the departures of Gasol and Ibaka could put alittle dent within the all-important cohesion that has fueled the Raptors’ success on both ends of the ground .
