Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (30) walks on the court to shoot free throws during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the San Antonio Spurs in Oakland, Calif., Thursday, March 8, 2018.

At one point in the second quarter, the Trail Blazers had out-rebounded the champs 19-3.

"We have other guys who are pretty good", Kerr said. "We still have a lot of talent". With both players on the same roster, the Warriors are nearly unbeatable on a regular basis and I both of them to have big games against the Spurs on Thursday night.

Bryn Forbes' 3-point try from the top to tie it hit the front rim as the final buzzer sounded.

"Nothing I ever heard of before, but I don't anticipate it'll be anything too serious", Kerr said. He's shooting a stellar 52.4 percent from the field (the second-best mark of his career), and would have to go 134-for-316 (42.4 percent) to miss more shots than he's made.

Behind Butler, Karl Anthony Towns - the second-leading scorer for the T-Wolves - is averaging 20 points per game and 12 rebounds per game.

Curry came down on his right ankle in an awkward way, and he went skipping past photographer's row and almost into the tunnel. Durant scored 15 points in the fourth quarter, when the Warriors overcame an eight-point deficit. Golden State managed to still get the 125-101 victory behind the play of Thompson and Curry, who combined for 50 points in the Warriors' win.

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. Aldridge was able to return after missing just one game, but he didn't look like himself on a night that he scored just seven points. And after Curry tweaked his right ankle last week after stepping on Zaza Pachulia's foot, the Warriors determined Curry did not aggravate the initial sprain. He won't play Saturday at Portland.

Losses have stacked up for the Spurs, who have lost seven of their last 10 games and have dropped to the fifth seed in the Western Conference. "I'm thinking about our health and we'll get Steph healthy". While Kerr listed Iguodala as questionable for Friday's game in Portland, Kerr said West will see multiple doctors for further evaluation.
