Smith almost lost his mind Wednesday (AEDT) while discussing Kevin Durant's recent comments about "missing" an injured Stephen Curry. The second time around, Jimmy Butler was out and Towns kept the Wolves in the game as long as he could, scoring 31 points (13-24 FG, 1-5 3P, 4-6 FT) with 11 rebounds and five assists. Golden State has lost both games without him and trail the Rockets for the top seed in the conference.
Kevin Durant had 39 points and 12 rebounds for the Warriors, who left Curry at home from this road trip to rest an injured ankle and lost 125-108 to Portland on Friday, but he made just 11 of 32 field goal tries.
The Minnesota Timberwolves stopped their National Basketball Association skid in dramatic style on Sunday, beating the reigning champion Golden State Warriors, 109-103, in Minneapolis. This has obviously forced head coach Steve Kerr to implement some major rotation changes. And D-West knows how to play and won a championship with us past year. "And Andre [Iguodala] and D-West, Jordan [Bell], so we're missing a lot, and we're just kind of playing on the fly each possession", he continued.
Gov. Murphy Introduces Financial Plans at Budget Address
Under his budget plan, incomes over $1 million would be taxed at almost 11-percent, which is up from the top bracket of 9-percent. Republican lawmakers say that the Office of Legislative Services is forecasting a budget surplus of $800 million to $1.5 billion.
Durant mentioned on Sunday that "it's weird" without Curry, which seems pretty logical - if your star teammate is out, everything from the defense thrown at you to shot selection changes.
He also added if the Warriors can get to Game 7 of the NBA Finals in 2016 without him, Durant should have the same success without Curry. That means Steph will miss his third game in a row when Golden State hosts the Lakers on Monday, and he will mis games against the Kings, Suns and Spurs during that stretch. "So why can't they do it without Steph Curry?".
Steph looked happy as hell the whole night. and we would be too withhundreds of millions in the bank at age 30.
