OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Steve Kerr will never wish for a star player to sit injured as Kevin Durant did against Minnesota on Wednesday night.
The Golden State coach sure saw a lot of encouraging signs from many in his supporting cast to pick up the slack with the NBA Finals MVP nursing a bruised left thigh.
The good ol’ standbys did their share of dazzling, too.
Klay Thompson scored 28 points with six 3-pointers, Stephen Curry had 22 points, eight assists and eight rebounds, and the Warriors beat the Timberwolves 125-101 for their fifth straight win.
Even without injured KD, the defending champs began to look like their dominant selves behind another strong defensive performance.
“Five guys helping and communicating, talking, it was a thing of beauty tonight,” Curry said of the defense.
Draymond Green posted another balanced effort with seven points, six rebounds, six assists and two blocks for the Warriors, who played without NBA Finals MVP Durant as he nursed a bruised left thigh.
Andre Iguodala started in place of Durant, and the 2015 Finals MVP scored a season-high 11 points.
