Green met Spurs guard Danny Green in the air as Green attempted a layup, and the two collided.

SAN ANTONIO - Manu Ginobili flipped his palms up towards the ceiling and shrugged at the suggestion the San Antonio Spurs might feel sympathy for the banged up Golden State Warriors.

Within the past year, Golden State has won its second National Basketball Association title in three years, extended its season-ticket-holder waiting list to more than 43,000 people and pushed its current sellout streak to 273 consecutive home games. However, no big man on Golden State's roster can replicate the floor-spacing ability that Green brings to the floor.

Warriors: Curry (right ankle), Durant (fractured rib) and Thompson (fractured right thumb) did not travel with the team, remaining in Oakland to continue rehabilitating their injuries. None of these injuries figure to linger into the postseason.

X-rays taken at the site were negative.

They trailed by eight points when Green left the game in the second quarter.

The Warriors are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games, 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 Monday games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall.

Cook led Golden State with 20 points, Looney added 12 and Andre Iguodala and Nick Young had 10 each.

Following a 124-109 victory at Talking Stick Resort Arena against the Phoenix Suns on Saturday, Warriors two-way contract player Quinn Cook has continued to play incredibly well in Stephen Curry's absence, pacing the Dubs with 20 points, five rebounds and five assists against the Spurs.

The Warriors weren't getting any sympathy from a Spurs team that has played without Kawhi Leonard for much of the season.

Warriors forward Kevon Looney played well for the second straight game.

While Golden State had little to play for in terms of playoff implications, the Spurs entered the game fighting for position in the precarious Western Conference standings.

The Spurs responded by holding the Warriors to 12 points in the fourth quarter to help their bid for a 21st consecutive postseason appearance.

Of course, the teams could look very different come playoff time.
