With his first three of the game against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night, Thompson claimed an impressive milestone that only he and his Splash Brother own.
But don't expect the Timberwolves to be too sympathetic.
LaMarcus Aldridge had a team-high 30 points for the Spurs, who were opening a rugged three-game trip on which they also will face Oklahoma City and Houston. Curry has sprained his right ankle four times this season alone, and the handicap that's taken him off the court before could surface again in the future when the team is facing some fierce competition. Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala, David West, Jordan Bell and Patrick McCaw all missed the game with various aliments.
"I think that was the wise decision", Kerr said of Curry not accompanying the Warriors to Portland and Minnesota.
"With Steph's ankle injuries, it's always a worry", Warriors forward Draymond Green said, per ESPN. But we're right here waiting. "I have no doubt in my mind that we will".
Dub Nation is certainly in prayer mood right now, and if Curry is done for the rest of the season, it may put their dreams of repeating as champions in serious doubt. With the loss, Minnesota dropped to 38-29 overall and 25-8 at home.
The Timberwolves will remain without their leading scorer and All-Star forward Jimmy Butler, who is still battling a meniscal injury to his right knee. He has missed the past five games. "Just trust each other".
Golden State may have to start worrying more about health than what seed they are in the playoffs. For his career, he is averaging 19.2 points and 5.8 assists. "The way how we opened the game, I scored some easy 3s and tried to rebound the ball and get it going".
Night in and night out, the Warriors find a way to use their offensive fire power from 3-point range and fast-pace offense to out-duel their opponents and further solidify their place as the team to beat, even when one of their key players is down. It's not something you talk about, it's something you do.
"When you're sitting courtside you kind of think you're Teflon - you can say or do whatever - but the ref caught him", Durant said.
Preview: The 51-14 Warriors' seven-game winning streak ended with Friday's 125-108 loss at Portland. CJ McCollum scored 30 points and Lillard added 28. "We still have a lot of talent". "We had some good looks". All that happens in a basketball game and all that happens throughout the season with ups and downs.
