Durant cleared to resume full practice after knee injury


"We have had a great run". The Warriors have WON 12 straight game, while the Suns have LOST just as many in a row.

Getting the top playoff seed was "a goal that we set going into the season", Curry said, "to make sure the regular season mattered for us, to clinch that, and we did".

It was the 10th time in Thompson's career, and the second this season, that he has scored at least 40 points in a game.

"I may not play him", Kerr said.

Off the bench, Jared Dudley chipped in a season-high tying 19 and Alan Williams recorded a double-double (16 points and a season-high 17 rebounds). "But you ask any Carolina guy, just the brotherhood that we have, we always want to support the guys". "Gonzaga's a good team but I think they'll be fine", McAdoo, who went undrafted but is now in his third year with the Golden State Warriors, said before Monday's game.

Curry became the sixth player in franchise history to score 13,000 points and the 10th player in National Basketball Association history to drain 1,900 3s. As a team, the Warriors shot 53 percent from the field and 14 of 32 from the three-point line as they blew away the young Timberwolves thanks to a season-high 41 fast break points.

It'll be interesting to see how his return impacts players like Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Andre Iguodala, who have been on a tear lately. They are going to host the Pelicans on Saturday, the Utah Jazz on April 10 and the Los Angeles Lakers on April 12.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama also declined to wear headscarves during visits to the country. The visit to Saudi is the second leg of Mrs May's Gulf tour.

Andrew Wiggins scored 24 for Minnesota, which couldn't keep up with Golden State's spiffy passing and contributions from so many players on both ends of the floor.

When Durant went down, Golden State had to find a way without him - and it wasn't pretty for a while. But, the Phoenix Suns are one of the worst team in this season.

Phoenix got as close as three points in the fourth quarter when a Ulis jumper made it 104-101 with 5:01 left to play. Jrue Holiday finished with 18 points and 13 assists, but turned the ball over twice in the last 30 seconds - leading to Denver free throws - and missed a 3-pointer as time expired. He will then be re-evaluated with the hope he is ready to return Saturday against New Orleans at Oracle Arena after being sidelined since February 28.

- T.J. Warren ended a career-long streak of 19 straight games with 10+ points.

We have the Golden State Warriors vs Phoenix Suns.

- Suns led for only 21 seconds; it was 2-0 at the 11:35 mark of the first quarter.

Suns: Phoenix has not won since deciding to shut down a healthy Eric Bledsoe for the season on March 15.
