Kerr: Curry (ankle) 'lobbied' to play, out Friday

Golden State is on the second night of a back-to-back to begin a hard five-game road trip.

The win improves the Warriors' record to a league-best 35-9.

The Spurs' projected starting lineup of Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge, Pau Gasol, Tony Parker and Danny Green played together for only the sixth game this season and just the second time at home.

All game long, hip-hop recording artist and Toronto native Drake was talking trash to Warriors players from his courtside seat.

Curry mostly looked like himself in his return from a two-game absence, but his pair of missed free throws with 45 seconds remaining was an uncommon sight.

3-point goals - GS 5-15 (Young 2-2, Durant 2-6, Green 1-4, Iguodala 0-1, Thompson 0-2), M 11-28 (Snell 3-5, Bledsoe 3-5, Brogdon 2-5, Maker 1-1, Brown 1-1, Middleton 1-5, Dellavedova 0-3, Antetokounmpo 0-3). During Wednesday's shootaround, the MVP would re-injure the ankle that cost him 11 games earlier in the season.

After coming off a brutal stretch losing nine games in a row (and 12 of their last 13) to fall into last place in the Western Conference, the Lakers have gotten back on track lately.

LaVine was making his Bulls debut after being acquired from Minnesota in the Jimmy Butler trade.

"Instant replay review was used because the officials were unsure who should be awarded possession after the ball went out of bounds", Borgia said.

Kevin Durant scored 25 pointsfor the Warriors, who are unbeaten in 12 road games.

Then, Toronto lost the ball on a wild scrum out of bounds that took replay to show DeRozan was on the sideline while trying to save it sprawling on the ground with three seconds remaining.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored 22 points for Brooklyn, which forced overtime despite never holding the lead.

Fred VanVleet's three-pointer at the buzzer rounded out the scoring.

Lou Williams scored 26 points as injury-depleted Los Angeles beat Sacramento 126-105 to get to.500 at the season's halfway mark.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 23 points, while Eric Bledsoe added 21 to lead the Bucks.

Mavericks rookie point guard Dennis Smith Jr. showed off his athleticism once again on Saturday afternoon against the Lakers. Harrison Barnes and Wesley Matthews each had 17 points for Dallas.
