Spurs-Warriors Recap: Golden State Beats San Antonio But Lose Steph Curry

Adjust Comment Print

Steph Curry's history of ankle injuries are well-documented, and on Thursday night, the Golden State Warriors' star found himself with a bum wheel once more.

Friday night's trip to Portland makes this one of the most challenging back-to-back sets of the season for Golden State.

Durant finished with a game-high 37 points for the Warriors, who beat the Spurs for the third straight time this season and fourth straight time overall. They shot a 3, and we fouled Durant. Only the Memphis Grizzlies are worse in that statistic.

It also is increasing community outreach efforts to nursing homes to help address prescription opioid addiction among the elderly. Through the same point in 2017, there were 47 overdose deaths - roughly a 23 percent increase year over year.

The Spurs have been funky indeed, winning only three of their last 10 games and sliding to fifth place in the standings, in a virtual tie with the Minnesota Timberwolves (sixth) and the Oklahoma City Thunder (seventh) - leading them only by a hair in terms of winning percentage.

It keeps them within touching distance of the Houston Rockets at the top of the Western Conference where they're once again just half a game behind.

San Antonio's collapse overshadowed a 30-point performance from power forward LaMarcus Aldridge, who also contributed 17 rebounds and four assists. In fact Draymond Green said Thursday morning that the team won't kill themselves to win the one seed. "It's like 10 games, 12 games that we've lost like that now". Six days ago in Atlanta Curry rolled his ankle after landing on Zaza Pachulia's foot.

Manafort pleads not guilty again
In the DC charges alone, Manafort faces a likely sentence of more than 15 years to nearly 20 years in prison if found guilty. It's the second case tied to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation in which Manafort has pleaded not guilty.

That gamble has paid off, and Curry has played in at least 78 games in each of the last five seasons, though many fans believe that Curry's ankle and knee injuries helped the Cavaliers come back from a 3-1 deficit in the 2016 NBA Finals.

After hobbling into a nearby tunnel at Oracle Arena in noticeable discomfort, Curry briefly stayed in the game to shoot two free throws, then left for good with 9:38 left in the first quarter. They can afford to let Curry recover without losing much ground.

Midway through the second quarter, though, the team announced that Curry wouldn't be making a comeback later Thursday evening. If I sat down here and said, 'We don't care; we don't want to be the No. 1 seed, ' I'd be lying to you.
