Suns defeat a wake-up call for Warriors, says Kerr

Andrew Bogut has shaken off jet-lag and turned back the clock to his National Basketball Association glory days in his return to the Golden State Warriors but it was fellow Australian Patty Mills and the San Antonio Spurs who won their western conference showdown.

Just because Golden State is the better team on paper doesn't mean it is a lock to cover the Warriors vs. Spurs spread, however.

"That's the hottest team in the league and obviously really well-coached", Warriors coach Steve Kerr told the Associated Press.

Philadelphia 76ers are riding a three-game winning streak and have all their major players back in the fold.

Durant shot nine-of-18 from the field and failed to make any of his four three-point attempts.

The Spurs play six of their final 11 games on the road and have climbed to fifth in the Western Conference standings. "Even with Cousins, I think they're a lot more beatable than they were in the past". Kerr said the Spurs out-executed, out-coached Golden State and deserved to win.

'Guys are playing better, ' Aldridge said of the turnaround.

Instead they got a cold-shooting night from all-star Russell Westbrook, who scored just seven points on a dismal two-for-16 shooting. Yeah, they're a smart disciplined team but it's not like we weren't getting to our spots and getting good looks. The run included a shakedown, step-back 3-pointer by Curry and a pair of quick passes from Curry to Draymond Green to Shaun Livingston for an emphatic dunk.

Mills, with 10 points including two three-pointers, and DeMar DeRozan's 26 points helped guide the Spurs to their ninth-straight victory as their late-season surge continued.

The model is well aware that Golden State ranks ahead of San Antonio in offensive and defensive efficiency, rebounding rate and point differential. But with DeMarcus Cousins having an MRI on Monday due to a sore right foot, Bogut will spring into action Monday night. Bogut spent four seasons with Golden State before rejoining the team as a free agent. He also added seven rebounds and eight assists to his scoring tally. In the last 2 games (both without Durant), the Warriors stifled James Harden and Houston to just 104 points.
