Curry to Miss 2-Game Road Trip

After Curry goes down Durant rallies Warriors past Spurs

Warriors forward Jordan Bell will miss at least two more games with a sprained right ankle, Golden State head coach Steve Kerr said before Thursday night's matchup against San Antonio.

Golden State is 51-14, now in second in the Western Conference behind the Houston Rockets. Fortunately for the Warriors, they relied on plenty of depth in Kevin Durant's productivity (37 points), JaVale McGee's highlight reels and energy (13 points), Nick Young's sharp shooting (12 points ) and Draymond Green's versatility (11 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists). The Spurs face the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday. Worse than losing the race for the top seed in the Western Conference to a red-hot Houston Rocket team. In their previous five defeats, the Spurs surrendered fourth-quarter leads, including three of the double-digit variety. But San Antonio played enough defense to hold the Warriors off.

Six Spurs scored in double figures. "We've proven we can win without him", Kerr said. "It's like 10 games, 12 games that we've lost like that now".

San Antonio avoided disaster after LaMarcus Aldridge left last Wednesday's game with an ankle injury. He left the game on San Antonio's ensuing possession, after sinking two free throws for Golden State's first points of the game, and headed to the Warriors' locker room. Stephen Curry's ankles have been an issue this season - he sprained one back on December 4 and missed much of that month getting healthy. But when team trainer Chelsea Lane noticed him limping slightly early in the third quarter, Curry's night was cut short. In 2016, Curry's ankle and knee injuries left them vulnerable, and the Cleveland Cavaliers were able to exploit that in the Finals to complete one of the great comebacks in National Basketball Association history. 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. Less than three minutes into Thursday's nationally televised matchup against San Antonio, however, Curry went up for a layup, collided with two San Antonio defenders and limped toward the south tunnel.
