Warriors star Curry sits out two-game trip

Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant both prefer another title over regular season MVP

Will be updated with Spurs quotes.

Stephen Curry's troublesome right ankle has flared up again, forcing him off the court very early in Golden State's 110-107 win over San Antonio.

In Episode 11 of the Warriors Off Court podcast, Golden State beat writer Connor Letourneau and assistant sports editor Janny Hu sit down with sports enterprise writer Ron Kroichick to discuss Kroichick's recent Stephen Curry at 30 project.

"We still have three All-Stars when Steph goes down", Kerr said after the game (ESPN). "We still have a lot of talent".

Bryn Forbes' 3-point try from the top to tie it hit the front rim as the final buzzer sounded. "Before I could even get over there the ref said he was throwing him out of the game". As a team, the Timberwolves shot 46 percent from the field and 12 of 31 from the three-point line but they were always playing catch-up after falling behind by 14 points going into halftime.

Green's hoop capped an 11-point, 12-rebound, 10-assist triple-double.

Back in 2010, Curry needed surgery to fix the ligaments after rolling his ankle multiple times during the season. Durant led all players with 22 points while Lillard had 15. The Warriors ensured team balance.

Back in December when he was out, the Warriors tightened up their defense, Kevin Durant took over on offense, and Golden State won seven in a row.

The Warriors officially called the injury a "tweaked right ankle", and announced Curry won't return to the game. The Warriors snapped their seven-game winning streak since the All-Star break with the defeat while Curry remained in the Bay Area nursing his sprained his ankle suffered Thursday.

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). He won't play Saturday at Portland. While they are still a half-game behind the Houston Rockets in the race for the Western Conference's No. 1 seed, they are a comfortable 12 games ahead of third-seeded Portland.

"We have to do a better job of just getting it to everybody and making sure we're sharp so that we don't have dry possessions like that in the fourth quarter", San Antonio's Danny Green said after the game (ESPN).

Yet, the Warriors showed mixed success on holding everything together without their star point guard against a Spurs team (37-28) still missing star forward Kawhi Leonard.
