Curry comes back to help out Warriors

Curry comes back to help out Warriors

For Toronto, point guard Kyle Lowry remained out with a bruised tailbone.

"We expected that and we took that punch", Kevin Durant said of Toronto's comeback.

However, the Warriors showed why they have won two of the last three National Basketball Association titles as they held on for victory.

Kevin Durant scored 25 points and Draymond Green had 14 for the Warriors, who have won 12 straight on the road.

The Golden State Warriors will probably want to consign Wednesday January 10 to history as quickly as possible.

Durant had 17 first-half points to help Golden State build its 63-49 halftime lead. The Raptors also got 12 points, nine rebounds and this nifty move in the midst of the Toronto rally from Jonas Valanciunas.

First Stephen Curry hurt his right ankle, for the second time this winter, during the shootaround before the Warriors faced the Clippers at Oracle Arena.

Per Eric Koreen of The Athletic, DeRozan said it felt like the Raptors "were playing 5-on-8" against the Warriors and referees. "I don't feel limited out there but you just feel it".

Kawhi Leonard scored 19 points in his return from a three-game absence, and San Antonio never trailed in a rout over visiting Denver. He's averaging 27.9 points and 6.4 assists per contest in 28 games this season.

Pistons guard Tobias Harris went three-of-14 from the floor and 0 for six from three-point range in Detroit's 107-105 loss to the Chicago Bulls.

Wall scored 17 of his 23 points in the second half and overtime, and tied a season high with 16 assists in the Wizards' 119-113 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night.
