Warriors' Stephen Curry out against Clippers due to sprained ankle

Warriors' Stephen Curry out against Clippers due to sprained ankle

Earlier in the year, Curry missed about three weeks.

With the exception of his rookie year, Durant has never posted a season in which he averaged less than 25 points per game. The win on this day 11 years ago also made Texas coach Rick Barnes 9-0 in Big 12 home openers at Texas. He was a full participant in a light workout Tuesday and now appears likely to return on Wednesday night.

"What goes through your mind when you know you're about to get on a heater like this?", ESPN's Scott Van Pelt asked Williams after Thursday's game.

Durant's donation wasn't just the largest by any former Texas basketball player, but by any former Texas athlete- think about that one for a second.

Brewer's reign atop the Timberwolves leaderboards would turn out to be short-lived, as journeyman Mo Williams sneakily broke his record by a single point in his lone season in Minnesota.

The Bucks rank sixth in points off turnovers allowed per game (15.0) while the Warriors rank 25th (18.6).

Green now ranks third in Western Conference front court player voting with 616,730 votes, while his teammates Durant (1,326,059 votes), Thompson (686,825 votes) and Curry (1,369,658) are sitting top four in the field at their respective positions. And neither is Steve Kerr. As a result, Sacramento made crunch time interesting as they were able to take a one-point lead with two minutes remaining.

"He just told me to be aggressive", Wallace said of an in-game chat. We forced them to bring their starters back in. Moreover, Milos Teodosic is dealing with plantar fasciitis. Counting Saturday's five-point effort in just 10 minutes, he's been held to 12 points or fewer in three of his last six meetings with the Warriors, and had 16 points on a fourth occasion. He was 6 of 7 from 3-point range but couldn't prevent the end of a five-game winning streak for Golden State, which is an NBA-best 33-9. His 50-point outburst will obviously attract some attention from some title contenders around the league. "For me, it was more important to get a win, try to close that gap to try to get back to.500, especially with the injuries and with guys in and out the lineup and for us to have that opportunity to be in the playoff fold".

"I've been playing with confidence for the past month or so now, so tonight was similar to other nights that I've had", Williams said.

The win capped a consecutive-nights sweep of Northern California for the Clippers, who stunned the Golden State Warriors 125-106 in Oakland on Wednesday. He joins Bob McAdoo, Charles Smith and Freeman Williams.
