Draymond Green has been the working gear behind the Golden State Warriors' success during the past three seasons and Thursday night, it wasn't any different, as Green stepped up in the absence of Stephen Curry to propel this team to a gut-check 110-107 win over the San Antonio Spurs. Contrary to San Antonio, Warriors games have finished over the total 51.6 percent of the time. Even though Curry went down early in the first, the Warriors were still able to take a 28-21 lead into the second quarter.

The Warriors are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

The injury happened as Stephen Curry landed after a layup attempt in the first quarter of the game against the Spurs. But San Antonio played enough defense to hold the Warriors off. The two-time MVP's recurring ankle issues could be the Golden State Warriors' biggest obstacle in the way of winning another National Basketball Association title.

Responding deputies exchanged gunfire with the suspect, who was armed with a rifle. "They were always safe", the sheriff said. The Yountville facility is the largest veterans' home in the United States, with about 1,000 residents.

"We have to do a better job of just getting it to everybody and making sure we're sharp so that we don't have dry possessions like that in the fourth quarter", San Antonio's Danny Green said after the game (ESPN).

"He won't play tomorrow", Warriors Coach Steve Kerr told reporters, referring to Friday night's game in Portland, "and we'll just take it day-by-day". Yet, this marks the fourth time this season Curry has experienced injuries with his right ankle. He limped into the tunnel grimacing in pain and frustration, then initially stayed in the game to shoot free throws before heading to the locker room. Can San Antonio defeat this team for the first time this season?

The team is likely going to handle Curry with extreme caution with 17 games left before the playoffs. Golden State covered as a 10-point favorite and the game finished with a total of 227 points, which was 8.5 points above the projected point total of 218.5 points. Pau Gasol will miss tonight's game with a shoulder injury. "I'm thinking about our health and we'll get Steph healthy".
