Warriors cancel practice day following Stephen Curry's 30th birthday party

Warriors cancel practice day following Stephen Curry's 30th birthday party

But the Warriors, who were also missing Andre Iguodala, David West, Patrick McCaw and Jordan Bell, shot just 40.7 percent from the field and lost back-to-back games for only the second time this season.

As Stephen Curry underwent treatment this weekend in the Bay Area on his tweaked right ankle, Quinn Cook - a two-way-contract player who has spent most of the season in the G League - started at point guard in road defeats to two playoff-caliber teams.

"Steph is the system here, and he's been a part of this since Steve Kerr's been here", Durant said.

Curry, who officially turns 30 tomorrow, has sat out the last two games due to an ankle injury, though the team insists it's "nothing major".


He goes on to talk about how Curry survived with Durant off the court so why is Durant so afraid to play without him. And we're left to find out in the next couple months if that's enough to keep them on top. I am very pleased with the effort and we will get some guys back here hopefully in the next week or two. "But we're in the middle of a tough stretch". While the Cavaliers-Warriors trilogy has been historic, there are several other teams that hope to topple Cleveland and Golden State to challenge for the Championship. The Boston Celtics are the most successful team in National Basketball Association history, with a total of 17 championships and 21 National Basketball Association finals appearances. Speaking of which, Golden State clinched a spot in the postseason on March 12 after the San Antonio Spurs beat the Houston Rockets, 109-93. The Warriors also struggled on that end against the Blazers in their last game, surrendering 131.5 points per 100 possessions.

In their last five games, Golden State is 0-4-1 ATS with 4 unders and 1 over.

The Warriors are banged up right now, but some good news comes in the form of a relatively lighter schedule in the week ahead.

And let's be clear: the lack of involvement on Towns' part isn't exclusively the fault of Tom Thibodeau and the offense; there are plenty of instances in which Towns is content to linger on the perimeter and even passes up mostly-open 3-point attempts - something that a 41.4 percent long-range shooter should never do, regardless of his height or position. Back-to-backs are never easy, but at the very least, it's not a long flight. Two years ago, the greatness of Stephen Curry and Draymond Green pushed the Warriors to 73 wins and one shot away from the single greatest season of all time.
