Curry out Wednesday with sprained right ankle, three other starters to sit

Griffin unlikely to play in Clippers-Warriors rematch

Golden State ranks first in assists per game (30.8) while Los Angeles ranks 24th (20.9).

The Warriors own the league's best record at 33-9.

So who is else is propelling the Warriors to their lead in blocks per game? "We just had a normal shootaround and he was in his usual game-day routine with Q (Bruce Fraser) and he just rolled his ankle somehow".

Can Golden State contain Giannis Antetokounmpo?

The Milwaukee Bucks are coming off the 110-103 win over Orlando. And Karl-Anthony Towns has been terrific for first-place Minnesota in the Northwest Division.

But they have starkly different opinions on the newly introduced format in which the player who receives the most votes in each conference will serve as a captain, choosing his team from the pool of players voted in as starters and reserves.

At this stage of his career, while in a Thunder uniform, Kevin Durant had managed to average 28.6 ppg, on averages of 48.7%, 38.5%, and 88.3%, while competing in 98% of his team's games. He would spend one season there, averaging slightly above 20 points per game, before the franchise relocated to Oklahoma City. In a seemingly regular road game against the Indiana Pacers, the then-32 year-old veteran in his 12season erupted for 52 points on 19/33 shooting, which included an array of insane, off-balance shots. It would require a 34-6 finish (or a 70-win pace), but that's what most people expected from this team heading into the season.

That left the only decision that is sure to spark debate: DeMarcus Cousins vs. Kevin Durant.

Durant made his return to action after sitting out the past three games with a right calf strain.

Lou Williams sparked the win over the Warriors with a career-high 50 points, including the final 18 of the third quarter. Of the Clippers' 39 games, 21 have finished over the total.

The Wizards shot 52.6 percent from the field but lost their second straight after a four-game winning streak. "That was unbelievable. He was scoring off of double teams".

This is an exhibition, and the league should give the fans what they want (including televising the All-Star Game draft, they blew it not doing that). The top scorer has been Steph Curry. Curry, Durant, Green, and Klay Thompson made the squad last season.

Golden State averages 45.0 rebounds per game, which ranks seventh in the National Basketball Association. The Warriors do not lose two in a row very often. The good news is that Klay Thompson is back after missing Wednesday's loss to rest.

Although it was clear that there were similarities between the two players, what most observers noted was that Durant was a much better shooter from long distance.
