Kevin Durant describes playing without Stephen Curry as "weird"

Kevin Durant scored 39 points and pulled down 12 rebounds for Golden State.

That's right, on March 14 Curry will have his birthday on the same night that his team takes on the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Warriors figured to stretch the Wolves' losing streak to four, although Minnesota did catch a break when two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry sat out because of a right ankle injury and key reserve Andre Iguodala was sidelined because of a sprained left wrist.

The Golden State Warriors were always going to have a tough time on their most recent road trip, which capped off a stretch of 3 games in 4 nights and featured matchups against Western Conference contenders. All of these videos can be found on the Warriors Report on YouTube.

Golden State has an outstanding 51-15 straight up (SU) record, but they are just 27-36-3 against the spread (ATS).

Davis had 25 points, 11 rebounds and 10 blocks in his return from a one-game injury absence with a sprained left ankle.

The four-time NBA All-Star has made a huge difference in his first season in Minnesota, as the Timberwolves have already won seven more games than past year.

ROCKETS 105, MAVERICKS 82: Eric Gordon scored 26 points, and Chris Paul had 24 points and 12 assists as Houston, playing without James Harden, who had a sore left knee, won at Dallas.

Down by double digits in the first half, in came to life in the second half after Kyrie Irving exited the game, then held off short-handed host Boston.

"Without Steph there, Quinn is asked to do a lot, so it's definitely a different dynamic when you have, [as] opposed to Steph Curry, when you're having Quinn Cook", the forward added. He finished 1 for 5 from the floor for two points with two assists, one rebound and two turnovers.

There are several teams in the West who look to challenge that narrative and assert their own credibility, including the Portland Trail Blazers, the New Orleans Pelicans, the San Antonio Spurs, the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Without Curry, the Warriors have lost two games in a row for only the second time this season.

Bobby Portis also had 21 points for Chicago.
