Durant leads short-handed Warriors past Nets, 116-100

Kevin Durant on Chase Center: 'I'm excited about this'

The veteran Warriors, though, provide the ultimate test. Simply put, Durant didn't answer the question.

Last month, he made it clear that he wasn't going to take another discount - even if it meant continuing on with the Warriors.

Quinn's total was a season-high as he dressed in place of Curry, who missed the game after suffering a groin injury on Thursday in a loss to Milwaukee.

The Nets fell victim to a hot-shooting Warriors club and fell into a trap Golden State set at the defensive end, with Brooklyn's guards repeatedly going iso after screens when the Warriors began switching everything. The Nets shot just 46.8 percent (36-for-77) and were chilly from 3-point range at 7-for-24 (29.2 percent). "He had better mobility, less pain so it's a good sign". "That's a good sign".

Already without Draymond Green and Shaun Livingston, Curry's abductor strain came at the most inopportune time for Golden State.

The Warriors have a uniquely fortunate situation that perhaps no other National Basketball Association team has ever been able to claim: Their third-string point guard is so effective he'll start over the second-string point guard.

"We're not expecting (Cook) to lead us in scoring, but the way he controlled the game, the way he made shots and the way he was aggressive, we need that every night", Durant told the Bay Area News Group. "It's no surprise to me that he can do this".

CDC Confirms 90 Cases of Accute Flaccid Myelitis
In 2015 and 2017, the counts were far lower, and it's not clear why. "As a mom, I know what its like to be scared for your child". Yet scientists are still stumped about the precise cause of the sudden paralysis, since these viruses are common but AFM is not.

That might have been the best thing that could happen for the Warriors though, as Thompson initiated the offense to start the game with Kevin Durant working off ball.

The Clippers work on their consistency by utilizing almost all of their roster. There'll be a few new players potentially getting into the rotation in this game due to various injuries.

Patrick Beverley had 21 points for Los Angeles, and Tobias Harris finished with 20 points and 11 rebounds.

"I think guys made shots tonight".

Add confidence to that sense of unity after the Clippers handed the Bucks just their third defeat of the season on Saturday. As we know, the Warriors won back-to-back titles - and he claimed MVP honors twice.

"Offensively, I felt kind of weird going down in the fourth quarter and overtime because we've been blowing teams out this year", said Antetokounmpo. "We move on and keep fighting".
