Golden State Warriors (26-17) at Toronto Raptors (16-28), 7 p.m. (ET)

(Sports Network) - The Golden State Warriors will try for a first win on this road trip Monday night when the visit the great north to face the Toronto Raptors.

The Warriors are 0-2 on this trek east with losses in Chicago to the Bulls on Friday and a setback in Milwaukee to the Bucks on Saturday night.

The loss in Milwaukee had to be bittersweet. It was former Warrior Monta Ellis who hit a 3-pointer with 32.7 second remaining to seal the 109-102 victory for the Bucks.

"We have to get back to who we are," said Warriors coach Mark Jackson. "We aren't rebounding at the same level and it's hurting us. It's costing us ball games, and we have to find a way to get it back."

The Warriors, currently ranked fourth in the NBA in rebounding, got trounced on the glass by the Bulls to the tune of 56-37. Against the Bucks, the margin was trimmed, but Golden State still lost, 58-50.

Steph Curry led the Warriors Saturday night with 26 points on 5-for-9 shooting from long range. It was his eighth straight game with 20-plus, which tied a career high, and he became the fifth player in franchise history with 500 made 3-pointers.

The Raptors have split the last four games, including a last-second home loss Saturday night to All-Star Kyrie Irving and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Irving hit a 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds left to give Cleveland the 99-98 victory.

"Kyrie threw up a bomb, he made a hell of a shot," Toronto's Amir Johnson said.

Johnson paced the Raptors with 18 points and 12 rebounds. Four other Toronto players - Ed Davis, DeMar DeRozan, Jose Calderon and Alan Anderson - scored in double figures.

The Raptors have reason for optimism and not just because the current eighth- seed in the east, the Boston Celtics, lost their best player, Rajon Rondo and Toronto only trails them by five games.

Toronto expects two key pieces, Andrea Bargnani and Jonas Valanciunas, to return from injury within the next two weeks.

"The thing is incorporating them back in to how we want to play, and how we're playing now," head coach Dwane Casey said.

Bargnani has missed 22 games with a torn elbow ligament, while Valanciunas has been sidelines for 16 games with a broken finger.

The Warriors, who are 13-5 this season against Eastern Conference opponents, have won five of six games against the Raptors.
