The Toronto Raptors may have gone 2-0 against the Golden State Warriors during the regular season, but Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry says that means nothing as far as their Finals matchup is concerned:

The Raptors and Warriors met way back in November and December, with Toronto beating a short-handed Golden State squad in overtime in Toronto before thumping the Dubs by 20 points at Oracle Arena about two weeks later.

But Lowry is correct in saying that the regular-season meetings between these two sides will have no impact on the outcome of the Finals.

That being said, the Raptors do seem to match up well with the Warriors, as Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green and Pascal Siakam are all versatile defenders who can guard multiple positions, which is exactly what you need against Golden State.

Plus, both Leonard and Green have experience playing against the Dubs from their days with the San Antonio Spurs.

Also, for the first time in Golden State's run of five straight Finals appearance, the Warriors actually don't have home-court advantage, as the Raptors finished with 58 wins during the regular season as opposed to 57 for the Dubs.

All things considered, however, the Warriors are still the favorite to win this series, as they have won three of the last four championships and don't seem to care all that much if they play home or away.

Golden State closed out all three of its Western Conference playoff series on the road in this postseason.

Obviously, the biggest factor may be the status of Kevin Durant, who is listed as doubtful for Game 1 on Thursday due to a calf strain.
