Steph Curry sprains ankle, Durant steps up

Blazers beat Warriors for 9th straight victory

Blazers beat Warriors for 9th straight victory

Kevin Durant had 37 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots and nearly single-handedly led the undermanned defending champions' fourth-quarter rally past the San Antonio Spurs for a 110-107 win Thursday night after Curry went down early.

Curry will not play at Portland on Friday or Sunday's road game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Less than three minutes into the game, Curry went up for a layup, appeared to collide with two Spurs defenders and hobbled into the south tunnel before head coach Steve Kerr called for time.

Thursday marked the fourth time Curry has dealt with an injury to that troublesome ankle this season. He had recently tweaked his ankle in the game against the Hawks.

While a patch for this was committed back in December 2016, it was disabled, but Android P will most likely enable it. As a matter of fact, numerous new features Google is highlighting in Android P are, dare we say, a bit boring.

As the motor of this team, Green is averaging 11.3 points, 7.8 rebounds, 7.5 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.4 blocks per game - numbers very consistent with the ones from last season, despite shooting a better percentage from the floor. These have impacted the team in nearly every game this season, and will do so, again, vs. the Warriors. Both publicly and privately, they have dismissed the importance of getting the top seed in the Western Conference.

The Spurs rank 11th in second chance points per game (12.8) while the Warriors rank 29th in second chance points allowed per game (13.6). Golden State had an effective field goal percentage of 0.633 (above their season average of 0.581).

Green threw Aldridge off his game down the stretch, holding the Spurs' superstar forward, who had a team-high 30 points, to just six points in the fourth quarter.

After a thorough evaluation in the locker room, the Warriors decided not to let Curry return to action. Expect it to be a team effort to step up with Quinn Cook possibly starting.

Heavy snow brings more power outages, travel woes to Delaware Valley
Intense bands of snow are moving through southern and central ME and winds were gusting to 40 mph in the pre-dawn hours. Cuomo said in a briefing on Tuesday that 78,000 people were still without power in ny , which he called "unacceptable".

Fortunately, the Warriors are the most talented team in the National Basketball Association.

That was why the Warriors went after Kevin Durant that summer, to ensure they would have another all-time great player to lean on if Curry went down again.

Stephen Curry, the primary reason for Golden State's three consecutive National Basketball Association finals appearances, also missed three weeks in December after spraining his left ankle. "I'm thinking about our health and we'll get Steph healthy". Warriors second-year guard Patrick McCaw will continue to wear a light brace on his injured left wrist for at least another week.
