Curry feared in­jured as War­riors mount come­back

Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Prime Sports -

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
