Warriors remind rivals what they're capable of

Sports | Apr 16, 2018
The Golden State Warriors fired a warning to their NBA title rivals, routing the San Antonio Spurs 113-92 despite missing Stephen Curry at the start of the playoffs.

Klay Thompson scored a game-high 27 points on 11-of-13 shooting, including five-of-six from three-point range, and Kevin Durant added 24 points, eight rebounds and seven assists to power Golden State.

The Warriors, twice champions in the past three seasons, continued to play without Curry, who has a left knee sprain.

"We're a championship club. We know what it takes this time of year in order to win," said forward Draymond Green. "We're primed for this. A lot of people have tended to forget what we're capable of. But we know, and we intend to show that."

Elsewhere, Eastern Conference top seeds Toronto Raptors outlasted the Washington Wizards 114-106 while the Philadelphia 76ers trounced the Miami Heat 130-103.

New Orleans dug deep to defeat Portland 97-95.
