Golden State Warriors: 4 takeaways from Game 3 vs. Spurs

To recap the game a bit: Kevin Durant finished the game as the leading scorer for the Warriors, dropping in 26 points, nine rebounds and six assists on 9-of-17 shooting.

Though, with the New Orleans Pelicans also up 3-0 in their series against Portland, it's becoming increasingly important that Curry does return to the court soon.

The 6-foot-10 Mirotic, acquired in a midseason trade after DeMarcus Cousins' season-ending Achilles tear, made 12 of 15 shots, scoring on everything from quick-release 3-pointers to cutting dunks and fast-break layups.

He added, "This time, he suffered a Grade 2 sprain on March 23 in that McGee collison".

Stephen Curry (left knee) is "still not close to playing", according to Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic.

Curry is expected to feature during the second round but Warriors officials are taking steps to ensure that he is closer to 100 percent before returning to action on the court.

Verizon, AT&T under investigation
Verizon and AT&T acknowledged the government probe and said they were working with regulators. The Justice Department is also now suing to block a merger between AT&T and Time Warner.

It was previously noted that Curry was targeting a return in the conference semifinals.

The Warriors and Spurs play Game 4 on Sunday in San Antonio. If they advance, the second round could start as early as April 28.

Curry (knee) will ramp up his activity over the next few days and will be re-evaluated in a week, Marc Spears of ESPN reports.

As talented as the other three All-Stars are, the Warriors are a much more formidable team with Curry on the floor.

"We've still got two more games to win, so we're not celebrating anything", said Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry.
