"He just wants to get his rhythm back and with three games to do that, it's a great opportunity to break a sweat and find his timing", Curry said.
The Golden State Warriors are among the best three-point shooting teams in the league and possibly the history of the National Basketball Association.
That fact alone should be an encouraging sign for any fan of the Warriors that was anxious about this team as they entered the post-season. Asked why he rested those two and not G Stephen Curry and G Klay Thompson, Golden State coach Steve Kerr said, "Draymond's exhausted".
Andrew Wiggins scored 24 points and Karl-Anthony Towns 21 for Minnesota, which couldn't keep up with Golden State's spiffy passing and contributions from so many players on both ends of the floor.
The Warriors gave back all but three points of a 23-point lead after one quarter but never surrendered the lead on the way to matching their longest winning streak of the year.
The Warriors also found an unlikely hero in JaVale McGee, who scored back-to-back baskets to put Golden State ahead 116-109 with 1:13 to go.
In all, Curry finished a dominant first quarter with 23 points - his 19th career 20-point quarter, fifth this season - on 8-of-12 shooting and 5-of-8 from 3.
Mike Epps sorry for dancing with kangaroo on Detroit stage
