Raptors guard Delon Wright, left, drives against Warriors guard Klay Thompson. The Raptors were whistled for 23 fouls, compared to 20 for the Warriors, but Toronto actually attempted more free throws (32-28). The Warriors were just 3 of 13 from 3-point range until Durant and Green hit back-to-back 3s in the final 3 minutes to seal their 11th straight road win.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Golden State Warriors turned up the heat late on the Milwaukee Bucks before finishing them off from the perimeter. DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors with 24 points, Serge Ibaka added 15 points and Jakob Poeltl had 14 rebounds in the loss.

Curry, a two-time league MVP, missed his second consecutive game with a right ankle sprain he suffered in shootaround on Wednesday.

The Raptors also dropped to 1-2 without point guard Kyle Lowry, who's day-to-day with a bruised tailbone.

Kawhi Leonard scored 19 points in his return from a three-game absence, and San Antonio never trailed in a rout over visiting Denver.

It's just a game notes designation, but it suggests that Casspi has a chance to play on Saturday.


Charlotte point guard Kemba Walker had several shots blocked on drives to the basket and finished 5 of 17 from the field. The last time Toronto beat a defending National Basketball Association champion was February 8, 2015 when it got past San Antonio 87-82 at Air Canada Centre.

WASHINGTON - John Wall scored 17 of his 23 points in the second half and overtime and added 16 assists as Washington beat Brooklyn after giving back a 23-point lead.

Lou Williams scored 26 points as an injury-depleted Los Angeles beat visiting Sacramento to get to.500 at the season's halfway mark.

Reigning MVP Russell Westbrook did what he does best, almost registering a triple double with 27 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists all while shooting less-than-stellar from the floor as he went 10-of-27 from the field in the Oklahoma City Thunder's 101-91 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.
