Warriors lose Curry but still beat Spurs

Damian Lillard's Case for NBA MVP TORREY PURVEY ICON SPORTSWIRE

Stephen Curry, the leader of the Golden State Warriors, hobbled off the court early in the first quarter against the San Antonio Spurs after tweaking his right ankle.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Curry would not play at Portland on Friday or at Minnesota on Sunday. He also tweaked the angle during a game last week in Atlanta.

The Warriors, 51-14, have won nine of their last 10 games but they're still a half game back of the Houston Rockets who are now riding a 17-game winning streak en route to an NBA-best 51-13 record.

Every day in the National Basketball Association there is a lot to unpack, so every weekday morning throughout the season we will give you the three things you need to know from the last 24 hours in the National Basketball Association.

Aldridge put in a monster effort, dropping a team-high 30 points, and a season-high 17 rebounds on the night, but it didn't prove enough as the Spurs were unable to hold a Kevin Durant 14-point personal flurry, scoring 15 of the last 19 Warriors points. He finished with 13 points and six assists.


As for Curry, he limped back to the court without any assistance after his awkward landing.

With Curry on the floor, the Warriors are scoring 120.7 points per 100 possessions, according to NBA.com's stats page, an absurd number that is almost seven points higher than the team's league-leading 113.9 points per 100 possessions - a mark that would make the Warriors the greatest offense in NBA history if it holds up. The Warriors then committed a foul to allow Curry to be subbed out.

Curry walked to the locker room immediately to get his ankle re-taped and perform unspecified functionality tests.

Golden State captured its seventh consecutive victory, and moved within a half-game of the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference. They've said time and again that their main goal is simply to go into the playoffs healthy and playing well, with the No. 1 seed out West being a distant third on the priority list.

"It's a little different", Kerr said. Andre Iguodala (wrist), David West (arm) and Jordan Bell (ankle) are all battling various injuries and the team is still without second-year guard Patrick McCaw.
