Warriors say Curry will miss Christmas showdown with Cavs

Warriors say Curry will miss Christmas showdown with Cavs

The news was confirmed by the Warriors earlier this morning in a statement released on Twitter. He ranks second on the Warriors with 6.6 assists and third with 5.1 rebounds per game.

But the unsung hero of the Warriors' success has been their bench. On Tuesday, the team provided an update on Curry's status. When he plays focused, he is the maestro on defense-he often orchestrates the offense, too, when Curry's sitting out.

At a ripe 37 years old, West is looking springier and more energetic, managing to even pull out poster dunks like the one below that almost erase the concept of time as we know it; he's playing like his prime self, like New Orleans David West but with a much better surrounding cast.

Not the same; can this level of play continue?

He's slated to do some on-court work this week, which is certainly encouraging for his overall recovery. As Durant says in his Instagram post's caption above, "It's not the same without Steph". Rookie Jordan Bell is continuing to show promise, sliding into Pachulia's starting spot.

The Cavs and Warriors play in six days. It should be an electric, high-scoring affair.
