OAKLAND – There's no airbrushing feature, no hint of an All-Star sinking, no particular element that puts a night on vacation.
The Warriors were exterminated on Wednesday by the Toronto Raptors in a top-to-to-be team from scratch to wall-to-wall destruction that warriors must believe can not be repeated under postseason conditions.
Here are the positive and negative results of a 113-93 home crash that was not as close as the value indicates:  POSITIVE
There was no denial
Coach Steve Kerr confirmed the training on Thursday, as well as Stephen Curry, whom I asked if there was anything about the game he liked. He stopped. He narrowed his eyes. Tilted his head. And about 1

"Not really," he said, laughing as well as points for thoughtful honesty.
The offense was imprisoned
Toronto brought with it such a defensive aggression that even when the warriors were open-faced – and there were plenty – they were still suffocated by the moments and could become suffocating do not convert. They never felt comfortable and lost the game in the first half when they shot 38.6 percent and 17.6 percent out of the depths.
The best warriors are a symphony of movements, with the ball finding the most open player. The Raptors took some of that away, and too often the warriors let it.
The defense took too many naps
If the first quarter is a tale of lazy defense, it will usually get repaired in the second or at the latest in the third. Not this time. The number of simple back door cuts and leaks that led to baskets in Toronto or forced fouls was amazing. Most of the night went on.
The Raptors did well with the idea that they could score. And they did.
It was about effort as well as execution. Toronto's desire to score was stronger than the warriors' desire to defend themselves, which led to an introductory lesson in which you enter a champion's home without your best player and take whatever you want.
Livingston suffers an injury
Shaun Livingston opened the fourth quarter and felt pretty good. He left the house at 8:36 and was in considerable discomfort. He was diagnosed with a pelvic cartilage that would keep him away on Friday in Sacramento and maybe beyond.
Although this is important at all times, Andre Iguodala is a bit different from the lineup. He and Livingston are interchangeable at times, so it's a notable massive loss if both fail at the same time.
The faint glimmer of hope for a comeback came in the third quarter, when the warriors played decent defense and Kevin Durant took over the offense. He scored 13 points in 6 of 10 shots, half the team's score for the quarter.
He finished the 13:22 shooting with a score of 30 points (2 of 4 from deep)
On such nights, when Klay Thompson (7-of-17, 0-of-5 from the depths ) has no open shots and teams swarm and capture curry (3-of-12, 2-of-1) -8), the value of Durant is clearly in focus. He becomes a necessity.
