Stephen Curry Scores 38 Points vs. Grizzlies in Return from Ankle Injury

2016 Stephen Curry Returns in Memphis Blowout Andy Liu

While Kerr said Curry had done everything in his power to prepare to get back Saturday, "there's no substitute for game action". As 13-point road underdogs, Memphis are well worth a wager to do just that.

After scoring 100 points or fewer in three of their previous four games, the Warriors racked up 116 points against Memphis on Saturday by the end of the third quarter, a remarkable stat considering Golden State had reached 116 points in just two of its previous 11 games, including once in an overtime win over the Lakers.

As you'd expect, the sharpshooter did most of his damage from beyond the arc as he hit an incredible season-high 10-of-13 three-pointers. "Hopefully, we can carry that forward". Curry could still be a bit rusty following his layoff and will likely be on a minutes restriction, but just having him back should be a big boost because even his mere presence on the court drastically changes how the Warriors offense works.

The Milwaukee Bucks ended the Thunder's six-game winning streak with a 97-95 victory in Oklahoma City - but Giannis Antetokounmpo's game-winning dunk in the final second sparked controversy when replays appeared to show him stepping out of bounds.

Dwight Howard had his best game of the season and nearly recorded a triple-double as he finished with 29 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists. In that game, Tyreke Evans and Marc Gasol combined to go just 9 of 31 from the floor, with Evans finishing with a mere ten points. Kerr expressed more internal criticism when it came to handling double teams on Howard. Meanwhile, Klay Thompson added 24 points and Draymond Green had 11 rebounds and tied a career-high with 16 assists.

The Warriors continued to push pace in the second quarter as they built up a comfortable lead, even without Green thanks to a first-quarter ejection.

"Turnovers. They got 32 points off our turnovers, 18 of them", he said.

Though Curry has been out since December 4, when he sprained his right ankle at New Orleans, the Warriors have won nine of 10 games while he was out of the lineup. "That's the natural reaction of our players to understand we don't have Steph".

Golden State got no closer than three points in the fourth quarter, and Charlotte's lead reached 95-81 when Jeremy Lamb scored a layup off a feed from Howard to cap an 11-0 run with 6:30 left.

"It'll be a little different, but Steph is a very good defender", Kerr said. Kevin Durant didn't have prolific numbers on Saturday, but he had an efficient 20 points (7-of-12 shooting) to go along with nine assists.

"When he's around, everybody feels better", Kerr said.
