Draymond Green: "Right now it's our turn to get beat up on"

Stephen Curry will miss at least three months for the ailing Warriors because of a broken left hand that required surgery, the toughest blow yet early in an already hard season for struggling Golden State following five straight trips to the NBA Finals.

"At the moment, he is a kind of lonely survivor, so he must help all these young people and teach them what it is, help guide them, and the most important thing is to continue with the way we have dealt with our business.in the last five years and more, "Kerr said". "Right now, it's our turn to get beat up on".

"I hurt my finger", Green said via ESPN.

Golden State, which remained winless in three home games, got no closer than nine in the fourth quarter.

LaMarcus Aldridge added 22 points for the Spurs (4-1), who were coming off their first loss of the season a night earlier.

Mills hit 10 of his 16 shots overall and Gay went 7-for-9, helping the Spurs shoot 47.3 percent from the field.

Dejounte Murray will sit out the game against the Warriors.

I mean, of course, they are right? "I think that was more the key than anything", Mills said.

Patty Mills has been an offensive spark plug off the bench for Gregg Popovich since joining the franchise for the 2011-12 season, although on this night, he looked more like the Mills we are used to seeing in the green and gold of Australia.

The matchup Friday is the first meeting of the season for the two teams. Kerr also acknowledged the importance of the veteran's leadership in light of numerous injuries.

The U.S. national women's basketball team attended Friday's game and received a standing ovation.

He has indicated he wants to play for the United States team at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, so Curry likely would prefer to play games before that. He finished with zero points and 14 rebounds. He scored a season-high 23 on Monday at New Orleans.

Green's status for Saturday's game against the Hornets is unclear, and because of the team's outlook - 1-4 after Friday's loss with little expectation to challenge for a playoff berth - and injury situation, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said the team would take a conservative approach with Green.
