Bucks' shooters stumble in loss to Warriors


Golden State Warriors two-time MVP Stephen Curry will miss his second consecutive game with a right ankle sprain.

"One of those guys can beat you on any given night", Kidd said, "but those three can definitely beat you without Curry". However, Golden State controlled the final six minutes of the quarter to take the 14-point halftime lead.

The Warriors, who shot 55 percent, held Milwaukee to four points over the first eight-plus minutes of the fourth quarter and used an 8-0 burst to take a 94-86 lead on Patrick McCaw's layup with 3:58 to play.

Durant finished with a game-high 26 points, Green stuffed the stat sheet with 21 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, while Kevon Looney provided a tremendous lift off the bench as the Dubs extended their road winning streak to 11 straight games.

Curry is averaging 27.9 points a game, the second-best rank in his nine National Basketball Association campaigns. Antentokounmpo matched up with Durant on most of the Warriors' possessions. Eric Bledsoe added 21 points.

Giannis Antetokounmpo posted 23 points in defeat for Milwaukee.

The Warriors will head to Toronto to close out the tail end of a back-to-back set Saturday against the Raptors.
