Kerr: Curry (ankle) 'lobbied' to play, out Friday

It certainly didn't put the defending champions off their focus as they started off their five-game road trip with an impressive win against an exciting and competitive young team in Milwaukee.

Giannis Antetokounmpo posted 23 points in defeat for Milwaukee.

Milwaukee returned to the court undeterred and slowly chipped the margin to eight before being dealt a tough blow when Antetokounmpo was called for his fourth foul.

Trailing by 14 at halftime, the Bucks turned to the Golden State way to get back in the game - hitting clutch shots from 3-point range.

Durant had 17 first-half points to help Golden State build its 63-49 halftime lead.

That was about as high as the Bucks would rise, with Brogdon opening the fourth quarter with a dunk to give Milwaukee a four-point lead.

"Having a player like that who elevates your level of play definitely makes you better as a basketball player so I appreciate times like this", Durant said. Malcom Brogdon had 17 and Tony Snell 11.

The Warriors are just viewing this as a cautionary measure, and Kerr said Curry is questionable to return Saturday against the.

So how did Thompson take the news?

The men from Oakland will now head to Toronto to face a red-hot Raptors team in a marquee matchup on the second night of a back-to-back where they hope to welcome Curry back.
