Stephen A. Smith goes off on Kevin Durant about Steph Curry

Stephen A. Smith goes off on Kevin Durant about Steph Curry

Golden State shot just 41 percent from the field, including 28 percent from three.

Their flourishing young center took over in the final stretch.

Following the Warriors' 109-103 road loss Sunday night in Minnesota, Kevin Durant told reporters that it is "weird" for the Warriors to play without injured co-star Stephen Curry.

Kyle Lowry added 16 points and seven assists and Serge Ibaka had 14 points and seven rebounds for the Raptors, who won for the eighth straight time and 15th in their past 16 games. "I'm blessed with the opportunity to catch the ball with that kind of situation and be able to capitalize".

"This is big for us, because this is one of the best teams in the league, if not the best", Wiggins said. "But we're in the middle of a tough stretch". He limped away, sank the subsequent two foul shots, then left the game for good. And as the Warriors trudge towards the postseason owning the unfamiliar task of a 2-seed trying to win the title, the small chips at the wall begins. He hit a fadeaway with 1:08 remaining. "This dude is a career 27 point-per-game scorer".




This was the 13th sellout of the season for the Wolves, their most since 2003-04 when they last made the playoffs.

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.

Down by double digits in the first half, in came to life in the second half after Kyrie Irving exited the game, then held off short-handed host Boston. While Patrick McCaw (non-displaced fracture, left wrist) and David West (right arm cyst) are unavailable, Jordan Bell (right ankle sprain) and Andre Iguodala (left wrist sprain) are listed as probable and Klay Thompson (sprained right thumb) is questionable. "He stays positive", Kerr said.

Minnesota has lost four of the past six games, including the game Butler was hurt.
