The Blazers' streak started when they beat Golden State 123-117 at the Moda Center on February 14, the last game before the All-Star break.
On the season, he is averaging 26.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 6.3 assists. The two-time MVP's recurring ankle issues could be the Golden State Warriors' biggest obstacle in the way of winning another National Basketball Association title. Heading into the Spurs game, Klay Thompson needed two three-pointers to reach 200 on the season.
The Stephen Curry rolled ankle alert is becoming a thing again.
Earlier in the night the Houston Rockets squandered their own win streak and the Warriors were tied for first in the West, but drop a half game back with the loss.
Green pitched in statistically as well, notching a triple-double with 11 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists while ratcheting up the defensive intensity in the fourth, helping the Warriors hold San Antonio to just 20 points.
Curry had just two points in 2:23 of playing time before leaving the game and not returning.
This is not as severe as the December injury, but he's going to miss time.
The shot got rejected, but Curry also drew a foul.
"I'm impressed with the youth movement that's going on in our country right now", Kerr said.
Curry was injured on the Warriors' sixth possession of the game. While he did not shoot the 3-ball like Curry, he did become the group's highest-scoring member (28.2 points per game in 2012-13) since Larry Bird (29.9 per game in 1987-88). With that being said, I'm still taking the Warriors over this struggling Timberwolves outfit who have only covered on two of their last 11 games. Kerr said that Curry texted him on Friday that he "had a good day of rehab" in Oakland.
Golden State is a 12-point favorite on the opening line, while the Over/Under (O/U) for the game opened at 222 points. On the other side, Andre Iguodala (arm) is doubtful for the Warriors, who are relatively healthy as a whole.
Back-to-back Spurs dunks put San Antonio ahead 101-93 with 4:44 remaining before the Warriors mounted quite a comeback.
