Klay Thompson scores 41, Warriors roll to 12th straight win

"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.

Thompson's 3, only his second in nine tries, made it 112-107 and Phoenix never got closer than five again.

The team said that if Durant exits Friday's practice without issue, he will play in Saturday's game at Oracle Arena.

With three games left to go, the 65-win plateau was in jeopardy late in February, spanning the early stages of March. Watch Golden State Warriors vs Phoenix Suns Live Streaming online and TV with the guidelines provided here below.

Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns have lost 14 of their last 15 games and they'll be hoping to snap a 12-game skid after falling to the Rockets by 123-116 on Sunday. Rookie Marquese Chriss drew his 10th technical foul.

In Los Angeles, Blake Griffin scored 32 points and the Los Angeles Clippers led all the way in beating the Dallas Mavericks, 112-101, to move within a half-game of the idle Utah Jazz for the No. 4 playoff seed in the West.

The Warriors have officially announced that Durant has been cleared to return to the court and we will more than likely see him suit on Saturday against the New Orleans Pelicans.
