Curry feared injured as Warriors mount comeback
STEPHEN Curry scored 31 points but hobbled off with an injury as the Golden State Warriors mounted a secondhalf comeback to defeat the New Orleans Pelicans, 125115, in a bruising battle on Monday.
For the second time this season, the Warriors overturned a 20-point half-time deficit to clinch a decisive victory.
Monday’s win came at a cost though, with Curry leaving the court late in the game after suffering what looked like a nasty twist of his right ankle.
Curry limped off to the locker room for treatment with just under a minute left with the Warriors leading, 120-113.
Moments earlier, Warriors star Kevin Durant had been ejected for the third time this season after clashing with DeMarcus Cousins.
Cousins appeared to connect with a glancing headbutt during an on-court confrontation before both players were tossed.
Durant’s ejection and Curry’s injury were the final twists of an absorbing encounter which saw the Pelicans surge into a 69-49 half-time lead at the Smoothie King Center in Louisiana.
Jrue Holiday led the scoring for New Orleans with 34 points with E’Twaun Moore
