Bucks lose to Warriors 108-94

Bucks lose to Warriors 108-94

Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson, both averaging more than 20 points per game, will have to take up the scoring load with Curry out against the mercurial Bucks.

Malcom Brogdon had 17 and Tony Snell 11.

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

The Warriors led by 14 at halftime, but the Bucks fought back in the third quarter, outscoring Golden State 33-17 to take an 82-80 lead into the fourth. With Curry out, the Warriors instead focused on driving to the hoop and gave the Bucks fits at time with cutters. On one in the second quarter, Durant made Antentokounmpo look silly with a nasty fake leading to a dunk.

Curry, who missed 11 games last month with the ankle sprain, aggravated the injury on Wednesday in shooting practice before missing the Warriors' 125-106 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. Kerr said Curry lobbied to return Friday and felt good at shootaround, but that the ankle still wasn't well enough for him to play. He scored 15 with five rebounds and four assists.

"We are making a conscious effort".

Curry has been dominant since returning from the injury on December 30, averaging 35.2 points and hitting 33 3-pointers (53.2 percent).

3-point goals - GS 5-15 (Young 2-2, Durant 2-6, Green 1-4, Iguodala 0-1, Thompson 0-2), M 11-28 (Snell 3-5, Bledsoe 3-5, Brogdon 2-5, Maker 1-1, Brown 1-1, Middleton 1-5, Dellavedova 0-3, Antetokounmpo 0-3).

Warriors forward Kevon Looney had nine points and eight rebounds in 23 minutes playing in his hometown. "I dreamed about this as a kid so it was pretty sweet", he said.

The Warriors will head to Toronto to close out the tail end of a back-to-back set Saturday against the Raptors.
