Curry was able to shoot the two free throws, but immediately left the court at the 9:38 mark of the first period and never returned. The report added that Curry re-injured the same ankle he tweaked in Atlanta almost a week back.
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.
Golden State remains just half-a-game back of the Rockets for the best record in the National Basketball Association heading into a tough one Friday vs. the Trail Blazers (winners of eight in a row, and sitting at home rested for this one).
Friday night's trip to Portland makes this one of the most challenging back-to-back sets of the season for Golden State. If that wasn't enough, the Warriors will likely be without Curry, who suffered yet another ankle injury. He needs one more 3-pointer to reach 200 or more 3s for the sixth straight season, which would tie Curry for an National Basketball Association record of most such seasons - and also for doing it in successive years. The team said he was getting re-taped and going through tests, then Curry didn't return - but the Warriors are going to be cautious at this stage of the season with the playoffs beginning next month. The Warriors then immediately yanked Curry out for Cook.
From there, Durant scored 12 consecutive points in two minutes and 22 seconds to tie the game at 105-105. The Warriors are only the Warriors when Curry is healthy and operating at peak efficiency. "I haven't heard of anything like this before but I don't think it will keep him out too long and hopefully it gets resolved". Warriors second-year guard Patrick McCaw will continue to wear a light brace on his injured left wrist for at least another week.
