Kerr: "It would be completely irresponsible" if Stephen Curry played against Cleveland


Curry hobbled to the locker room late in the fourth quarter of the Warriors' 125-115 win over the Pelicans after twisting his right ankle badly while going for a steal.

Also for Golden State, forward (right shoulder), guard (right knee) and center (left shoulder) are questionable for Wednesday's game against. Finals MVP Kevin Durant has stepped up in Curry's absence, averaging 32.3 points, 9.6 rebounds, 6.6 assists and 3.0 blocks over the last seven games before Saturday's tilt against Denver.

The Warriors are banged up but getting healthier, and, by the way, have won 11 in a row. Pachulia further added, "This game doesn't kind of decide anything, but at the same time, of course, we would love to win". "It's Christmas Day and national TV, our Finals opponent for three straight years".

Multiple times through the call, everybody was asked about the James Harden-Chris Paul duo and the surging Houston Rockets, and what's their view on facing this team in the Playoffs. "So great team, and it should be fun on Monday". Barring any setbacks, Smith will start at shooting guard on Christmas. "So if we weren't playing Cleveland on Christmas and I told you Steph hasn't played in a 3-on-3 game, hasn't had any contact at all and the game is 48 hours from now, you'd say, 'oh, Steph's not going to play".
