Stephen Curry heads to locker room

The Golden State Warriors pulled out a hard-fought 110-107 win over the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night but the victory came at a cost. In addition to taking on a tough opponent in a hostile environment with no rest, the injury bug has bitten the Warriors.

Curry had just two points in 2:23 of playing time before leaving the game and not returning.

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is not expected to miss too many games after suffering an ankle injury on Thursday (Friday AEDT).

The game should be a showdown of strength against strength as the productive offense of Golden State takes on the elite defense of San Antonio.

While Kevin Durant carried the scoring load, dropping 14 straight points in the fourth quarter, Green did his damage from all over the floor, stuffing the stat sheet with 11 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists, three steals, and two blocks during his 36 minutes on the floor.

Curry (ankle) will not play in Friday's game against the Trail Blazers, Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated reports. And Golden State Warriors fans suddenly became silent.

LaMarcus Aldridge finished with 30 points, 17 rebounds in the loss. He left the game on San Antonio's ensuing possession, after sinking two free throws for Golden State's first points of the game, and headed to the Warriors' locker room.

"Not necessarily take the game over, but just try to control the pace of the game, try to make sure we're solid, try to be better defensively, try to lead the guys even better", Green said.

Worryingly for the Dubs, this is the fourth injury Steph has had to his right ankle this season and the second in the last week after he suffered a minor sprain when landing on teammate Zaza Pachulia's foot against the Atlanta Hawks.

With the Rockets and Warriors not meeting again in the regular season, this race to the finish will simply boil down to which team is able to avoid any slip-ups down the stretch.

Despite falling behind by as many as 11 points in the first half, the Spurs caught fire in the second quarter with an 8-0 run that grew to 20-4 as Aldridge and Davis Bertans scored eight points apiece in the quarter. I got fouled on the 3-pointer, and I think that's what got me going.
