With Curry out, Warriors storm back in fourth to beat…

Event: San Antonio Spurs vs. But when things click for them they are still a very formidable team.

But then the unthinkable happened.

The Golden State Warriors will be without two-time MVP Steph Curry for at least the next two games as he recovers from a lingering ankle injury, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

After that November 8 matchup, Warriors coach Steve Kerr told The Associated Press he "kind of likes the idea" of playing a man down.

"We still have three All Stars", Kerr said.

Every day in the National Basketball Association there is a lot to unpack, so every weekday morning throughout the season we will give you the three things you need to know from the last 24 hours in the National Basketball Association.

Once again, that talent pulled through for the Warriors. The Warriors have been playing well lately but they're just not almost as potent without Curry as they couldn't beat the Trailblazers despite 40 points from Durant.

Curry was able to shoot the two free throws, but immediately left the court at the 9:38 mark of the first period and never returned. But then San Antonio woke up, outplayed the Warriors, and took a 50-46 lead into halftime. Since it is likely that these teams will be in the playoffs, expect this game to be extremely competitive.

Strangely enough, when the Warriors faced the Timberwolves in their first meeting back in November, Durant did not play as he was dealing with a bruised left thigh. When the fourth quarter began, the Spurs held an 87-78 lead. It's odd to say this, but the Spurs are in a battle for their playoff lives. Yet, the Warriors still have three All-Stars in Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson. "We've proven we can win without him". But he didn't get much help. The Spurs face the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday. The nine-year veteran has had a long history of ankle injuries, including an ankle injury that sidelined him for a stretch of 13 games earlier this season. While they are still a half-game behind the Houston Rockets in the race for the Western Conference's No. 1 seed, they are a comfortable 12 games ahead of third-seeded Portland.

The Warriors had won seven in a row but didn't have Stephen Curry, Jordan Bell and Andre Iguodala, who were all out with injuries.

As for San Antonio, Kawhi Leonard can't come back soon enough.
