Kevin Durant scored 14 straight points to get Golden State even and Draymond Green converted a short jumper for the go-ahead hoop with 1:33 to play Thursday night, allowing the Warriors to rally past the San Antonio Spurs 110-107 in Oakland, Calif., despite losing Stephen Curry to an ankle injury in the third minute of the game.

Golden State plays on Friday against the Blazers, who now sit third in the West. Curry has sprained his right ankle four times this season alone, and the handicap that's taken him off the court before could surface again in the future when the team is facing some fierce competition.

The Warriors saw their 7-game win streak snapped and still await word on when Curry might return after "tweaking" his right ankle on Thursday.

Behind Butler, Karl Anthony Towns - the second-leading scorer for the T-Wolves - is averaging 20 points per game and 12 rebounds per game.

The Warriors, 51-14, have won nine of their last 10 games but they're still a half game back of the Houston Rockets who are now riding a 17-game winning streak en route to an NBA-best 51-13 record.

The shot got rejected, but Curry also drew a foul. Durant led all players with 22 points while Lillard had 15.

Warriors: Thompson's first 3-pointer of the game gave him 200 for the season.

"Chelsea and I have a much better view of the big picture than Steph does", Kerr said. "It becomes a more methodical game".

Trail Blazers: It was Portland's sixth straight win at home.

Thursday's total is set at 218 points.

Green's hoop capped an 11-point, 12-rebound, 10-assist triple-double.

"You can't beat the Warriors if you're playing 2 versus 3".

Warriors fans have faced an unexpected problem in recent years.

"When you're sitting courtside you kind of think you're Teflon - you can say or do whatever - but the ref caught him", Durant said. "I probably shouldn't have said anything (to media) in the first place".
