Stephen Curry will miss a minimum of two weeks after an MRI exam on his injured right ankle Tuesday revealed a sprain. "Like, 'I got it, this one's mine.' He was brilliant", coach Kerr said of Durant. This was KD's third 30-point triple-double in his National Basketball Association career, his second with the Dubs and his ninth overall. This should be good for us in the long run.

"Tonight it felt like I could go in my bag of tricks and pull some stuff out", Durant said after Wednesday night's victory, per a video tweeted by Anthony Slater of The Athletic. "He took over. It wasn't really scripted, it was just a natural product of Steph being out, Draymond being out".

"I think big picture-wise over the next couple weeks it's an opportunity for our team to get better because we have to", Kerr told reporters on Thursday (AEDT), via The Associated Press.
