Back at the end of last month, Klay Thompson suggested that the Warriors vs. Raptors could be a preview of the NBA Finals.

Since then, the Warriors have dropped a pair of contests to the Raptors — 131-128 in OT on the road on Nov. 29 then 113-93 on Wednesday night. That latter defeat, a lopsided loss that came against Raptors team that was sans Kawhi Leonard.

It also featured the MVPish Stephen Curry going for 10 points, tying his season low, as he shot 2-for-8 on triples. On the night, the Warriors were 6-for-26 (23.31 percent) from beyond the arc.

Curry is keeping the setbacks in perspective, as he detailed to Yahoo! Sports’ Chris B. Haynes.

“We’ll remember what it’s like playing against them, but it’s 0-0 from here,” Curry told Yahoo Sports. “The sweep doesn’t mean nothing in terms of when the lights are the brightest on the biggest stage in the playoffs. Everything’s different.

“We’ll remember how tonight was,” Curry continued. “It’s a tough vibe, but they don’t get any extra points if we were to face them in the Finals.”
