Curry proud of how Warriors handled Green-Durant incident


So, now we're faced with real adversity.

On the other hand, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson posted 32 and 22 points, respectively, for the losing squad.

The Slovenian is leading all National Basketball Association rookies with 19.5 points per game and his total of 24 paced the Mavericks, who recorded their fourth straight win and just their second victory in 19 previous meetings with Kerr's men, while Harrison Barnes added 23. A couple of his turnarounds went in, and you know that rhythm is going to continue to come.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr admitted earlier in the week that the National Basketball Association (NBA) champions were "banged up physically and spiritually" in the wake of the spat and the continued absence of Stephen Curry, the league's top scorer.

Green, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, was ultimately the one to pay the price for the altercation, as he was suspended the next game without pay.

Durant missed two shots and Thompson one in the final minute, all of which could have either tied the game or put Golden State ahead. Dallas is second at 2,407, followed by Houston with 2,340.

"Teams know what we want to do", Durant said after the defeat to San Antonio. LeBron James has 203 such games during that same span. ...

The flames all but obliterated the town of Paradise, population 27,000, and ravaged surrounding areas on Thursday. The Woolsey fire in the south has so far killed two people and damaged a number of beach resorts.

Kerr was asked if he planned to give Golden State a day off Monday following a three-game road trip as it prepares to host Oklahoma City on Wednesday. "I'm going back to the old days, Bobby Knight style".

DeRozan experienced his first slump with the Spurs since joining the team in an off-season trade from Toronto.

"I've been doing this when I was in Madrid, too, " the guard said. "But like I said, we all have that feeling of understanding a lot of things are new".

"I think the way we've handled it as a team, the way Draymond's handled it, the way KD's handled it, it's been nothing but professionalism", Curry said.

England coach Jones rues lost chances
What the All Blacks do is build pressure themselves and if they are not making mistakes then they are very hard to live with. Steve Hansen's side were stunned by South Africa in Wellington after a 36-34 defeat in September.
