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.

The defending National Basketball Association champions asserted dominance over the aspiring contender in the East in the fourth. He was plus-18 in 18 minutes while Golden State took a 63-49 lead at the break. With Curry out, the Warriors instead focused on driving to the hoop and gave the Bucks fits at time with cutters.

MILWAUKEE - Middleton 2-12 3-4 8, Antetokounmpo 10-19 3-3 23, Henson 2-6 2-2 6, Bledsoe 8-16 2-2 21, Brogdon 7-14 1-1 17, Snell 4-7 0-0 11, Maker 2-5 0-0 5, Dellavedova 0-4 0-0 0, Brown 1-2 0-0 3.

Curry missed most of December with an ankle sprain and aggravated it on Wednesday, slipping during shootaround, and has not played since.

But Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Wednesday that Curry "did look good" as he participated in a full practice on Thursday. The move is seen as a precautionary one as Golden State has back-to-back games concluding Saturday at Toronto. Not only did they allow Lou Williams to score 50 points, the Warriors have allowed their last eight opponents to score more than 100 points. "We are trying to get better at guarding the 3", coach Jason Kidd said.

Klay Thompson added 12 points for Golden State, which recorded its 11th consecutive road victory.

"I thought Malcolm was great, being able to guard Thompson and also being able to run the offense and take advantage of the ball movement", Kidd said. "I dreamed about this as a kid so it was pretty sweet", he said.
