Warriors star Curry discusses his return from injury

Drummond finished with eight offensive boards.

Kevin Durant top scored for the Warriors with 28, while Andre Drummond had 16 and 19 rebounds as Detroit won their fifth in a row.

"I want to play with my guys and do what I do". The group plays with a different confidence knowing the former MVP can get hot at any moment.

"We know Reggie isn't 100 percent after sitting out so long with that (ankle) injury", Pistons coach Dwane Casey said.

A 3-pointer by Darren Collison had given IN a 110-107 advantage with 1:12 to go before Cauley-Stein stole the ball and Fox made a layup with 35.1 left to get the Kings within a point.


"I've got to do a better job than I've done here the first couple months of the season", Kerr said after a 111-102 loss to the Pistons. The second half was better, a little more aggressive, decisive, and obviously seeing some shots go down. Everybody was doing a little bit too much sacrificing and that happens at times when your lineups change and things like that, but we'll adjust back to how we normally play.

Golden State coach Steve Kerr blamed himself for the defeat, which saw the Pistons finish with 12 3-pointers and 14 offensive rebounds to Golden State's six and eight, respectively. Tonight was probably a game I could mark down as one of my worst performances as a coach, honestly. "He's feeling better, but it's just a really hard injury to heal". "We were getting stops, getting out on the break and getting easy baskets".

"I think our spacing is screwed up, and we aren't playing with enough urgency", Durant said. "None of that is on coach".

Curry shot three of nine from three-point range and also grabbed five rebounds in the loss.

Detroit led by as many as 11 points in the second and led 54-46 at halftime. Golden State has lost the first two games of the road trip. But he started out rusty, missing his first three shots, all three-point attempts. It was Curry's first game since he injured his groin against the Milwaukee Bucks on November 8.


Kawhi Leonard scored 34 points and former Cavalier Danny Green added 15 points and seven rebounds to lead the visiting Toronto Raptors to a 106-95 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night.

"We've usually got Blake out there with the second unit, but today we were playing without him and were able to stretch the lead", Johnson said.

Tonight's impact: The Bulls have already reported that Markkanen will have a minutes limit if he plays tonight.

They'll carry a 15-9 record in that matchup.
