Draymond Green in Warriors' loss to Spurs

Poor three-point shooting cooled the typically red-hot Warriors, which have now connected on a combined 2 of 23 on 3-pointers in their last two first halves against the Spurs, hitting only 1 of 11 from range in the opening half of the March 8 matchup between the teams in which Curry suffered his current right ankle injury.

None of the Warriors' key injuries is expected to extend to the playoffs, but this late in the season is a hard time have a team thrown into disarray.

At halftime, the Warriors announced that Green had a pelvic contusion and would not return to the game.

Two blocked shots propelled the Warriors to their first lead of the game. Stephen Curry continues to sit with an injured ankle, Kevin Durant was out with a fractured right rib, and Klay Thompson is resting a fractured thumb.

Trump has before dismissed the deal as "the worst and most one-sided transaction Washington has ever entered into". But German leadership has been less vocal on the issue, which has played well in Iran.

The Warriors are 13-7 when playing without Curry, 8-2 with Durant out and 2-1 without Thompson; Golden State is 2-4 without both Curry and Thompson. Kevon Looney gave the Warriors the lead at 63-61 on jumper with 2 seconds left in the frame. The Spurs pulled away in the fourth quarter, however, to win the game, 89-75.

Aldridge scored all but three of San Antonio's 20 points during the run to finish with a game-high 33 points and 12 rebounds.

He played 38 minutes in San Antonio, shooting 8-of-18 from the field despite a 2-of-8 performance from behind the arc and 2-of-4 performance from the free throw line. Curry was scheduled to be reevaluated Tuesday.

The Spurs' end-game prowess, something that has been taken for granted most times during San Antonio's stretch of 20 straight seasons in the postseason, has been anything but consistent this year. The Spurs own a 106-60 all-time edge against Golden State, including a 62-19 record at home. Leonard (right quadriceps tendinopathy) has played in only nine games this season.
