Warriors vs. Spurs Highlights, Steph Curry Injures Ankle, Durant Drops 37

Meanwhile, Warriors rookie forward Jordan Bell will miss at the next two games in Portland (Friday) and Minnesota (Sunday) after spraining his right ankle on Tuesday against Brooklyn.

The two-time NBA MVP drove to the basket two minutes into the game, went up for a contested layup, got fouled and landed awkwardly. With 18 games remaining in the Golden State Warriors' season, Curry and Durant have a chance to join that even-more-exclusive group. And after Curry tweaked his right ankle last week after stepping on Zaza Pachulia's foot, the Warriors determined Curry did not aggravate the initial sprain.

Should Curry's balky right ankle be a concern as he enters his 30s?

The Warriors are 50-14 and have a top-two seed locked up in the Western Conference. As of Thursday night, that might no longer be the case.

Quinn Cook was forced into the starting lineup in Curry's absence and scored 8 points with 0 assists while playing 30 minutes in Portland.

After Draymond Green stole the ball from Spurs point guard Dejounte Murray, he threw a hit-ahead pass to Klay Thompson, who hit Curry in stride as he streaked down the court to get out on the break. He finished with 25 points, but worked hard all night for those points against a vastly improved defensive Blazers team.

If you love betting the over, then Thursday night's matchup between the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors is flawless for you. "He wanted to lobby to come back in the game, but we wouldn't let him". He left Thursday's game in the second quarter and did not return.

"We still have three All-Stars when Steph goes down", Kerr said after the game (ESPN). Now used to the open looks that seemed to throw him off during his first season in Golden State (37.5 percent), Durant is up to a career-high 43.1 percent. They are 27-1 in those games, winning 27 in a row. Given his absurd volume (30.1 points and 11.2 3-point attempts per game), posting those hallowed percentages was the flawless testament to his uniqueness.

During their last five games, the Warriors have scored an average of 114.8 points per game (1.2 below their season average) and allowed an average of 100.4 points per game (7.1 below their season average).
