Warriors G will play Saturday vs. Raptors

LeBron James

The Golden State Warriors turned up the heat late on the Milwaukee Bucks before finishing them off from the perimeter.

The Warriors held a 27-point lead at half-time but Toronto struck back after the interval - and outscored the visitors 36-19 in the fourth. But the very next day, Curry would dismiss any concerns surrounding his ankle injury.

With Toronto down just one, Durant nailed a 22-foot jumper off a Curry pick and roll, with 21 seconds left to put the Warriors up three.

"We were just getting lazy", coach Steve Kerr about his team's defense in the third quarter. "I'm not happy with a moral victory but we've got to can what we had in the second half. and play that way for 48 minutes".

The Warriors are 31-6 when they reach the century mark, while the Raptors are 28-5.

With the way that Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston, and David West backed their teammate, you could feel that the fan must have said something nasty. He didn't play the final 4:41 of the third quarter after picking up his fourth foul.

Kevin Durant hit a 19-foot jumper with 21.3 seconds remaining Saturday night, allowing the Golden State Warriors to hold off the Toronto Raptors 127-125 after almost blowing all of a 27-point halftime lead in Toronto.

Williams scores 26 points in Clippers' win LOS ANGELES - Being.500 is hardly a team's goal, although with the kind of injury-wracked season the Clippers are having, it's somewhat of an accomplishment.

The defending National Basketball Association champions asserted dominance over the aspiring contender in the East in the fourth.

Their 81-54 halftime lead was their biggest half of the season and their first 80-point half away from home since November 2, 1990, at Denver (87 points). It's just how things go: once you reach a certain level of dominance, indifference among fans will nearly be non-existent - people will either love you or hate you.

Ibaka was back following his one-game suspension.

"I thought Malcolm was great, being able to guard Thompson and also being able to run the offense and take advantage of the ball movement", Kidd said. For the Warriors, Stephen Curry (sprained right ankle) is questionable, and the status of Omri Casspi is unknown after he missed Friday's game with back soreness.
