Stephen Curry to miss at least 4 more games with ankle injury

Kevin Garnett Karl Anthony Towns

Karl-Anthony Towns had 31 points and 16 rebounds as the Timberwolves held off the defending National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors 109-103 at Target Center on Sunday. He returned for Golden State's March 8 win over Brooklyn, posting 34 points, six rebounds and four assists in 34 minutes, before he re-injured his right ankle less than three minutes into last Thursday's win over San Antonio. All of these videos can be found on the Warriors Report on YouTube.

The Golden State Warriors haven't been as dominant in the regular season as they've been in recent years with the Houston Rockets now atop of the Western Conference. And D-West knows how to play and won a championship with us previous year.

Anthony Davis returned from a one-game absence caused by a sprained ankle to play on his 25th birthday and lead New Orleans with 25 points, 11 rebounds and a career-high 10 blocks. With Butler sidelined, the Timberwolves offense flows through Towns, the former No. 1 draft pick who was a first-time All-Star this season.

"It's weird not having Steph out there", Durant said, according to ESPN's Nick Friedell.

Without Curry, the Warriors have dropped two games in a row for just the second time this season.

This follows their loss on the road against the Portland Trail Blazers in a tough two-game trip.

The Warriors missed their next two shots - they misfired on their last four in the game - and Jeff Teague helped ice the win with one free throw with 29.5 seconds left.

With the Warriors trailing by seven midway through the fourth quarter, Durant got aggressive, powering his team within 104-103 with 2:08 left. Golden State covered as a 13-point favorite and the game finished with a total of 239 points, which was 9.5 points above the projected point total of 229.5 points. The Warriors are clearly prioritizing Curry's health over chasing the Rockets, and that is probably the right move in this situation. He shot 57.1% from the field, making 12 of his 21 attempts (10/10 from the line, 6/12 from three-point range).
