Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Golden State Warriors - 3/11/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

NBA star Steph Curry sees 'creative genius' similarities with Barcelona's mercurial Messi

San Antonio avoided disaster after LaMarcus Aldridge left last Wednesday's game with an ankle injury.

The Warriors visit the Portland Trail Blazers tonight, and will take on the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.

The Warriors officially called the injury a "tweaked right ankle", and announced Curry won't return to the game.

On the season, he is averaging 26.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 6.3 assists.

Golden State trailed 87-78 going into the final 12 minutes, earning a fourth straight win and eighth in 12 against San Antonio after a 122-105 home victory February 10. Having Steph Curry and Klay Thompson on the court is more important than another home playoff game. Yet, this marks the fourth time this season Curry has experienced injuries with his right ankle.

Earlier in the night the Houston Rockets squandered their own win streak and the Warriors were tied for first in the West, but drop a half game back with the loss.

With more than half the National Basketball Association season completed, there is a game between two elite opponents. 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.

Chip adds that the only D name for a boy that he can come up with is "Dragon", which sends Gage into a giggling fit. The couple met their Twitter announcer Gage while at the Tim Tebow Foundation golf weekend .

Portland went on an 8-0 run to push the lead to 41-27, but Golden State got within 52-50 on Kevon Looney's follow shot.

Warriors guard Steve Kerr acknowledges he is concerned about health, but not to the point to concede the West's top seed by resting guys. He was visibly in pain as he headed to the locker room.

JaVale McGee played his most complete game this season with 13 points, seven rebounds and four blocks in just 17 minutes. Kerr said that Curry texted him on Friday that he "had a good day of rehab" in Oakland.

"Without Steph, we're missing a lot on the offensive side of the ball", Durant said. And the Spurs posted 56 points in the paint and 21 second-chance points. The Warriors ensured team balance.

Warriors: Golden State's 10 turnovers matched its third-lowest total for the season.

As part of his continued outspokenness about gun violence in the United States, the Warriors coach will participate in a town-hall style meeting with Rep. Ro Khanna and high school students in at Newark Memorial High School on Monday. Andre Iguodala (arm) is questionable.
