- Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports pic via ReutersNEW YORK, March 9 - Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry will not travel with the team on a two-game road trip due to a right ankle injury. They had 31 free throw attempts, while Memphis had just nine. So, familiar feelings of previous fourth-quarter failings creeped in when Golden State ran off a 6-0 run in the first 1:02 of the fourth quarter to close to the gap to 87-84, before Durant eventually closed out the show.

Not three minutes into Thursday night's game against the visiting San Antonio Spurs, Curry went up for a layup and came down on LaMarcus Aldridge's foot, appearing to roll his ankle. Stephen Curry was the top scorer from either team with 34 points on 12-for-20 shooting.

According to ESPN Stats & Information research, the Spurs have been outscored by 31 points in clutch time (defined as the final five minutes with a game within five points) since February 1, which ranks as second-worst in the National Basketball Association in that time. The Warriors rank first in offensive efficiency, while the Spurs are second in defensive efficiency.

As for Golden State, they break the 50 win mark with this win.

"We lost the game", Spurs point guard Tony Parker said.

Dub Nation is certainly in prayer mood right now, and if Curry is done for the rest of the season, it may put their dreams of repeating as champions in serious doubt.
