Pacers open four-game trip at injury-ravaged Golden State

  • A heated Steve Kerr called a timeout just so he could yell at the refs

The Pacers and Warriors are the only National Basketball Association teams that haven't met this season.

Durant, is the Warrior who benefits the most from Curry's absence, as he averages 29.9 ppg, 7.6 rpg and 5.5 apg. The Pacers will face the defending National Basketball Association champions twice over their final eight games. They have been playing well, having won two in a row and three out of four, beating the Heat 113-107 in OT in their latest.

The Jazz, who've had more than their fair share of injuries over recent seasons, weren't in a merciful mood, either - at least not after giving up an early nine-point lead to the Warriors Light squad.

That's what former Warriors general manager Larry Riley may have provided Golden State.

That latter late-season rarity isn't as bad as it sounds.

For other parts of the stock market, sentiment was still soured by fears of full-blown trade war between the United States and China .

Golden State's players wore Warriors blue uniforms with gold and white trim and the game was held in Oracle Arena, but other than that, these Dubs bore very little resemblance to the star-studded champions of yore in a 110-91 drubbing by the Utah Jazz.

"It is a tough turn of events but I will have an opportunity to play in games that matter in the playoffs and that is the focus".

Green was set to return Sunday from a pelvic contusion but was ruled out with flu-like symptoms.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr is less concerned about playoff seeding than he is the health of Curry, who suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his left knee Friday against Atlanta.

Curry will be re-evaluated in three weeks, which means he will miss the start of the postseason, according to Kerr. "So, yeah, we have to be ready to play without him and see how he's coming along". No one embodies that culture quite like Curry, who is the engine of the NBA's most terrifying winning machine.

Quinn Cook will likely be in the starting lineup again on Tuesday as Steph Curry continues to nurse his sprained MCL.

The Pacers, meanwhile, had plenty to celebrate on their flight after Sunday's playoff-clinching win.

Not surprisingly, the squad that includes the likes of Jonas Jerebko, Royce O'Neale, Ekpe Udoh, Georges Niang and David Stockton - yes, Nada's son - surged to the much-needed victory. That win kept them tied with the fast charging 76ers. "So we know - and that team was different than now, but we didn't have Kevin Durant".

Golden State has a superb 54-19 SU record, but they are just 30-40-3 ATS.

IN also will face Sacramento, the Los Angeles Clippers and Denver on its eight-day trip before returning home for the rematch with Golden State next Thursday.

He also called on the government to accelerate dialogue on the reform of public services such as state-run railway operator SNCF . Voters think French president is launching 'too many reforms, ' according to new poll.

While Kevin Durant (ribs) and Klay Thompson (thumb fracture) are expected to be back in plenty of time before the end of the regular season, it stands to reason that they'll be out of rhythm.
