Still out with ankle injury, to be evaluated March 20

"I recall Max Kellerman religiously bringing up the fact that the Golden State Warriors went to Game 7 of the NBA Finals without "KD".

The short-handed Warriors, trying to salvage a two-game road trip after falling in Portland on Friday, again came up short with superstar Stephen Curry sidelined by a sprained right ankle.

Smith delivered yet another rant aimed at Kevin Durant as the Golden State Warriors deal with a couple of losses without the injury Steph Curry. All of these videos can be found on the Warriors Report on YouTube.

The Western Conference has several challengers of its own, most notably the Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors. "I hate the golden state warriors", one fan tweeted, "but I respect the hell out of the move of having to cancel practice after Steph's birthday party". Durant ended up with 40 points, 6 assists, 6 rebounds, 2 blocks and 6 threes with 5 turnovers in 36 minutes.

Iguodala missed his third straight game because of a left wrist injury.

Victor Oladipo had a game-high 27 points and Myles Turner added 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Pacers, who won for the fifth time in six games in March. The Warriors, however, were unfazed as they went on to win 15 games and only lost four times in their forward's absence. They lost both games, falling to the Trail Blazers, 125-108, and the Timberwolves, 109-103.

Durant and Green each knocked down a pair of 3-pointers in the second quarter, and, thanks in part to an 18-4 first-half edge in fast-break points, the Warriors built a lead as big as 57-45.

Without Curry, the Warriors have dropped two games in a row for just the second time this season. Durant and Thompson are two of the best shooters in National Basketball Association history, sure, but they need role players to do their jobs to beat a playoff-caliber team on the road.

Denver, which led by as many as 36 points, now enters a hard stretch - eight of its next nine games are on the road.

The 2015 and 2016 NBA MVP is now fifth in the league for points per game with 26.8 and second for three-pointers made with 209, sitting behind a stellar James Harden of the Houston Rockets.
