Meanwhile, Warriors rookie forward Jordan Bell will miss at the next two games in Portland (Friday) and Minnesota (Sunday) after spraining his right ankle on Tuesday against Brooklyn.
The play when the injury took place looked innocent enough, but when Curry's momentum carried him beyond the court, he turned his right ankle, and that's all it took to knock him out for the rest of the game.
Then Kerr walked back to the Warriors' locker room, where team trainer Chelsea Lane informed him of the change in plans: She would hang back in the Bay Area to work with Curry.
Stephen Curry stuffed his 2015-16 unanimous MVP season with statistical accomplishments. While they are still a half-game behind the Houston Rockets in the race for the Western Conference's No. 1 seed, they are a comfortable 12 games ahead of third-seeded Portland. With both players on the same roster, the Warriors are nearly unbeatable on a regular basis and I both of them to have big games against the Spurs on Thursday night. Kevin Durant poured in 40 points on 12 of 21 shooting, Klay Thompson added 25 points while Draymond Green scored seven points with 12 rebounds and six assists. Stephen Curry was the top scorer from either team with 34 points on 12-for-20 shooting.

Aldridge was coming off a dud on Monday in which he scored 7 points, so it was nice to see him have a big game.
However, home-court is secondary to this Warriors team.
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. Murray's youth showed when he gave up a costly turnover in the fourth quarter which led to a Durant jumper to tie the game at 105 a-piece.
"I actually like when we have to sit somebody", Kerr said. "The team said he was getting re-taped and going through tests, then Curry didn't return - but the Warriors are going to be cautious at this stage of the season with the playoffs beginning next month". Not to mention, in the last matchup in January, Minnesota outscored Golden State 60-44 in points in the paint. Given his absurd volume (30.1 points and 11.2 3-point attempts per game), posting those hallowed percentages was the ideal testament to his uniqueness. Andre Iguodala (arm) is questionable.
