Stephen Curry scores 42, Warriors clinch West with win over Suns

Apr 07, 2017, 01:56

Golden State Warriors won 11 matches in the row and they are looking to make 12 winning streaks tonight. "It's been good for our team and it's going to be good for us heading into the playoffs".

Coach Steve Kerr can crack all the jokes he wants about Durant's impending return.

Kemba Walker scored 37 points, but the All-Star guard went cold in the third quarter along with the rest of the Hornets (36-42). I can tell. The training staff can tell.

"In basketball, I think you can't promise that certainty. So whenever he gets back, we'll plug him back in there and watch his minutes".

Now, it seems, the Warriors just need one key reinforcement: Durant. Durant's expected return Saturday was reported earlier this week. Golden State won 73 games last season and 67 games in 14-15.

Durant will be on a minutes restriction, however, as he works his way back into the lineup.

The Warriors final three games are at home: Saturday against the Pelicans, Monday against the Jazz and Wednesday against the Lakers, before the playoffs begin in the Bay Area the following weekend.

Kevin Durant is working towards returning from his knee injury.

The Warriors struggled mightily when Durant initially got hurt, losing five of seven games.

Andrew Wiggins scored 24 points and Karl-Anthony Towns 21 for Minnesota, which couldn't keep up with Golden State's spiffy passing and contributions from so many players on both ends of the floor. This season they have 65 wins and 14 losses with three games remaining.

After missing 19 games since he injured his knee February 28 against the Wizards, Kevin Durant is expected to return to action Saturday against New Orleans barring any setbacks in Friday's practice, the Warriors announced in a statement. "We are so much better without him". During that time, he averaged 19.2 points per game and shot 46.5% from the field. But Tyler Ulis and Alan Williams led a Suns fightback in the second period, where Phoenix outscored Golden State, 34-17, to close the gap to six, 58-52, at the half.

The Nets' last four games are against the Magic, Bulls (twice) and Celtics. "This has nothing to do with his absence; this has to do with the schedule", Kerr said Tuesday night, via The Mercury News.

It was a weird sight at the time, true, but who would have thought the signing of an electric appliance would set off an even stranger series of events.

Pretty cool, right? If we tried that there's every chance a window or two would be broken. "That would've happened whether Kevin was here or not".
