Critics of the Golden State Warriors may have celebrated Thursday night when the team's champion Steph Curry injured his ankle, forcing the team to confront the San Antonia Spurs without their star player, but the Warriors pulled through to achieve a stunning 110-107 victory despite their loss. 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.

Meanwhile, the Minnesota Timberwolves have been in a bit of a slump as they've lost seven of their past 11 games and they will be hoping to avoid a fourth straight loss after Thursday's 117-109 loss to the Celtics.

The two-time NBA MVP drove to the basket two minutes into the game, went up for a contested layup, got fouled and landed awkwardly.

"They hit shots", Durant said.

"He said (this ankle turn) was a little bit like the Atlanta one", Kerr said (via USA Today).

Caught in a tight race for the top spot in the Western Conference with the Houston Rockets, the Warriors have turned up the heat on offense over the last month. He now has six seasons with 200-plus 3s. It was his 15th of the season, and one more and he gets a one-game suspension.

Reserve center David West missed his third straight game with an infected cyst in his right arm.

Damian Lillard scores 28 points to power the Portland Trail Blazers.

This season, however, it seems that his ankles are once again becoming a problem, and now that it seems like he will be out for the foreseeable future, Golden State is going to have to hold down the fort until he's able to return if he returns at all.

Forward Nemanja Bjelica has started in place of Butler and led Minnesota on Thursday with team highs of 30 points and 12 rebounds.

"You can't beat the Warriors if you're playing 2 versus 3. It's what you're actually doing, not what you're saying". "I probably shouldn't have said anything in the first place".
