While the Cavaliers-Warriors trilogy has been historic, there are several other teams that hope to topple Cleveland and Golden State to challenge for the Championship.

It is not hard to see why. It is obvious that Thompson and Green - albeit being highly valuable - are not the top guys in Oakland. He scored 37 points in the victory, including 12-straight for Golden State in the final minutes to complete a comeback, but Curry's absence was certainly felt. His stats are impressive and make him one of the most exciting players to watch out for in the leading up to the NBA Playoffs. Towns, who played in his first NBA All-Star Game earlier this season in Los Angeles, ranks fourth in the NBA in rebounding (12.2 rebounds per game) and second on the team in scoring (20.4 points per game). On paper, Durant clearly is the Warriors' best player.

Over the years, the two-time champion has done a good job of staying healthy.

His team now sits at the third seed in the Western Conference, which would tie for their highest playoff seeding since the 1999-2000 season.

Shia Labeouf Says Kanye West 'Took All My Fucking Clothes'
They're a struggling motherfucker showing his ass in front of the world'. When I brought her backstage, he was a fucking sweetheart to her.

Iguodala (sprained left wrist) and Bell (sprained right ankle) each sat for the third straight game, when the Warriors visited the Timberwolves on Sunday.

Without the point guard in the lineup, head coach Steve Kerr has opted to go with 24-year-old Quinn Cook as the starter instead of the experienced Shaun Livingston. The Boston Celtics are the most successful team in National Basketball Association history, with a total of 17 championships and 21 National Basketball Association finals appearances. Kevin Durant finished the game with a team-high 40 points against their last opponent, the blazers.

Smith had a big problem with that statement because he wants Durant to step up without Curry on the court.

A couple of days ago, it was Curry who went down due to an ankle injury.

Soon after the decree was issued, a legal advisor to Iraq's President Fuad Masum, said Masum was refusing to approve the budget. Around 25 million Kurds live in a territory that spans the borders of modern-day Turkey , Iraq, Syria , Iran and Armenia .

The over is 11-4 in the Warriors' last 15 games coming off a loss and is a flawless 6-0 in the Timberwolves' last six home games.

Even the MVP candidate Durant admitted that he is missing the services of his co-star.

David West has missed the past four games with a cyst on his right arm that may have become infected.

Surely, a Warriors team with Durant as the centrepiece instead of Curry would also have been built for success.

It is like I feel ashamed. "Although my teammates help me a lot, the things don't work out the way they want them to work out". Gomes is set to start on the bench for the visit of Chelsea in their Champions League encounter on Wednesday.

That statement, however, is not meant to undermining Durant's importance or his contributions to the team.
