At the 6:03 mark, Gordon took Curry across a Griffin screen, then zipped back the other way. Curry stepped over Griffin’s foot, but before he could shift back the other direction, his right ankle rolled over.
He immediately went down and stayed there for a few minutes. Eventually, he got up and limped to the locker room under his own power. He did not return.
It ruined what was otherwise a pleasant night for the Golden State Warriors, who beat the Los Angeles Clippers with relative ease 109-91. Monta Ellis’s shot wasn’t falling like it was on Wednesday as he put up only 15 points, but he made up for it by facilitating the ball and handing out 11 assists. Dorrell Wright added 24 points and hit six treys, Curry added 16 points and 6 assists before his injury, David Lee compiled another double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds, and Rodney Carney compiled 12 points off the bench.
Eric Gordon led the Clippers with 19 points (but needed 17 shots) and second year rookie sensation Blake Griffin put up 14 points and 10 rebounds. The Clippers only shot 38.6% from the field to the Warriors 53%. Golden State broke things open in the third quarter, when they outscored L.A. 32-13.
But the big question is Curry, and whether he’ll be back sooner rather than later.
