Unfortunately, Curry will not be in uniform when Golden State takes on the Toronto Raptors on Thursday. The Warriors have lost four of their last seven games, but they are now on a three-game winning streak.

Klay Thompson scored 23 points and Jonas Jerebko had 16 of his 20 in the fourth quarter and overtime, but Golden State lost to Toronto for the first time since March 2014.

While Golden State shot just under 58 percent from deep in the first quarter, Toronto separated itself with its 3-point shooting - the Warriors failed to connect on a 3-pointer in the first quarter.

The Raptors (18-4) boast the best record in the league and will put their six-game win streak on the line against Golden State.

The internal feud began after a November 12 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers when Green declined to give the ball to Durant at the end of regulation for a potential game-winner and Durant admonished him on the court.

Toronto's Norman Powell (left shoulder subluxation) remains out. Greg Monroe (back spasms) is questionable. "Food tastes better, you guys' questions get better". They are arguably the two best at their position and both flourish at both ends of the floor.

Something tells us you won't want to miss Thursday night's showdown. They will not be matched up on every possession just because of all the switching that occurs on a nightly basis. He was plus-12 over a season-high 33 minutes.

The Warriors have won three consecutive games after defeating the Orlando Magic 116-110 at home Monday night. Most opponents have started a low post presence that Jones can handle. Pascal Siakam had 26 points, while Serge Ibaka had 20 points.

And that kind of elevation is what separates average shooters from very good ones most of the time. "We weren't defending; we were turning the ball over". On Friday night, they combined for 63 points. While he did say that everybody is ecstatic for their star point guard's return, nobody is more excited than the two-time MVP himself.

They will need the same type of effort, especially against a team like the Raptors.

In Sacramento Calif., Tobias Harris scored 28 points, Montrezl Harrell added 24 and Los Angeles beat Sacramento. "There's going to be some games where I've got to go get buckets". Their job is to make plays and score the basketball.

With so much hype and attention around this game, would they lock in immediately? Expect there to be a shootout north of the border.
