Kevin Durant leads Stephen Curry-less Golden State over Milwaukee

Stephen Curry scored a game-high 30 points in the first game, in which the Warriors beat the Raptors 117-112 but were not able to cover as 12.5-point favorites.

The were playing their fifth game in eight days, their third game in four days and the second of a back-to-back set.

The Warriors earned their 12th straight road win, improving their road record to 19-3 this season. "I don't feel limited out there, but you can just feel it".

"It happens", Kerr said about Curry's missed free throws.

The play had the Raptors hot, as they were wondering why the officials could go back two seconds to review whether DeRozan was out of bounds (let alone whether players were out of bounds earlier in what was clearly a wild possession), instead of looking directly at whether Curry was out of bounds himself. But the Warriors held an 81-54 halftime lead.

Thompson and Draymond Green had 10 points apiece while Durant added nine to lead Golden State to a 43-35 lead after the first, withstanding a 19-point effort by DeRozan.

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

On a related note on the passing game, wide receiver Chris Hogan is expected to play for the first time since early December. Hogan missed seven of the past eight games with a shoulder injury, and White missed the past two games with an ankle injury.

DeMar DeRozan gave the Raptors an MVP-level performance with running mate Kyle Lowry sidelined with a tailbone injury, scoring 42 points and orchestrating Toronto's stirring second-half comeback.

"And I have all the respect in the world for our officials, but when you go in and have that situation, guys fighting their hearts out ... again, maybe they thought we didn't deserve it the way we played in the first half, I don't know".

"Like I told [Chris Haynes], man, I'm not talking about no other man's tattoos".

These were not the Cavs from Thursday night, an old, slow, disjointed group that threw in the towel shortly after the opening tap. They started the trip with an impressive win in Milwaukee last night as Kevin Durant continues to be unstoppable on offense after his return from a calf injury.

"They key word is believing", Casey said.

DeRozan said the win over Cleveland and second half versus Golden State weren't surprises to the Raptors players.

"We've got to keep moving the ball, we've got to stay consistent moving the ball well and get defensive stops", said guard Tony Snell (11 points).
