They revealed that they will be asking KD to do more intensive drills over the next couple of days, which will include explosive cutting and lateral movements. The medical team will be evaluating his performance to determine if the 2014 NBA Most Valuable Player will be in game shape to join GSW in their remaining games of the regular season.
Steve Kerr’s team, so far, holds the best record in the league with 61-14 and have already clinched a playoff spot which will be happening in a couple of weeks. They are coming off a 110-98 victory over the Spurs where, this time, nobody was on the bench resting.
Stephen Curry top-scored for the Western Conferences’ top seeded team with 29 points and 11 assists while his “Splash Brother” Klay Thompson had 23 points built around his 4 triples. David West provided the spark off-the-bench with 15 points, 4 boards and 5 assists to give the win for his team, who started to pull away towards the end of the third quarter.
Kawhi Leonard led the now 57-17 Spurs with 19 points, 5 boards and 2 blocks. LaMarcus Aldrige, Pau Gasol and Danny Green all chipped in at least 16 points but was not enough to cover Tony Parker’s scoreless game in 24 minutes of play.
