Warriors cancel practice day following Stephen Curry's 30th birthday party



Another title contender in the East is the up-and-coming Philadelphia 76ers, who, after years of tanking, have assembled a team of young talent, including All-Star center Joel Embiid.

Stephen Curry missed his second consecutive game Sunday due to an ankle injury which played a huge factor in Sunday's 109-103 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves. "We've just got to keep playing, keep working, and we'll be fine". "I am very confident in the way that we are heading, we are just in a little bit of a tough stretch". They're tied for fifth place but only 1½ games above the cut for the playoffs. He hit a fadeaway with 1:08 remaining. The game can be seen on ABC at 3:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 11, 2018. As the final seconds ticked away, a capacity crowd rose to its feet as Towns raised both arms wide, encouraging fans to get louder.

"It was like a sixth player in the game".

Nikola Jokic recorded his seventh triple-double of the season by providing 20 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in the Nuggets' 130-104 laugher over the Kings. LaVine and Bobby Portis scored 21 points apiece as Chicago overcame a career-high 38-point performance by Taurean Prince. Draymond Green added 10 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, but he had trouble defending Towns down low.

Still, Kerr was satisfied with his short-handed team.

Steph looked happy as hell the whole night. and we would be too withhundreds of millions in the bank at age 30.

Rookies Jordan Bell is also out with a sprain to his right ankle and shooting guard Patrick McCaw who plays as backup has a fractured left wrist. This will be another hard week for the Warriors to grind through all these minor but not insignificant injuries. "But I think these guys will be back in time for us to find the rhythm that we need". Coach Tom Thibodeau then initiated Derrick Rose's debut in an extra-small lineup next to Tyus Jones and Jamal Crawford, and, coincidentally or not, the Warriors immediately took control.

Golden State ranks first in blocks per game (7.8) while Minnesota ranks 23rd (4.3). Everybody's just coming together even better.

From the last two games, the team has averaged 117 points.

With Butler sidelined, the Timberwolves offense flows through Towns, the former No. 1 draft pick who was a first-time All-Star this season.

The over is 11-4 in the Warriors' last 15 games coming off a loss and is a flawless 6-0 in the Timberwolves' last six home games. The Washington Wizards and the Indiana Pacers can also surprise and challenge for a NBA Finals appearance.
