San Antonio got out of the gate in a hurry, they opened with a 15-0 run thanks to three point shooting from Danny Green and some tough defense.
Green said Harden pinched him near his right hip at one point, "so I punched his wrist".
"There's no question we've benefitted from resting guys", Kerr told reporters after Wednesday's win.
Sources told ESPN's Marc Stein that a likely scenario would have Durant playing again, albeit in limited minutes, in Golden State's final three regular season contests.
James Harden becomes the 1st player in National Basketball Association history to score and assist on 2,000 points each in a season. He's explosive, he's fresh and he's been the catalyst offensively during this 10 game winning streak. "We're going to try to figure it out".
The Warriors had some first quarter offensive struggles.
The league's entire issue with teams resting healthy players is watchability and the experience for fans. They were simply dominating. Klay Thompson added 20 while Iguodala had 14 points off the bench.
Iguodala finished with 14 points.
Despite losing Kevin Durant, Golden State remain the leaders of the Western Conference, and with this victory they have placed their foot in first place.
"We kind of got them by storm at the beginning but then they got back in the game with unexpected weapons", said Manu Ginobili. "We had a really good night defensively - everything came from that. I think now we understand how important our defense is for us winning, especially in the playoffs".
The lightning-quick Warriors kept the Spurs scrambling on both ends of the court. San Antonio was on its way to a comfortable blowout win. "Some miscommunication on the switches".
Durant went from crutching around in a knee brace to chair shots to set shots to on-the-move dribble moves in a four-week span. "It's helpful for us".
Stephen Curry scored 24 points, Klay Thompson had 20 and Golden State got key plays down the stretch from just about everybody, using a big fourth quarter to hold off the Rockets 107-98 on Friday night. Harden went 4-of-18 on Friday night, missed seven of his nine 3s and turned it over six times.
HOUSTON may have surpassed Golden State in three-pointers made in a record-setting season.
"(We had) some miscommunication on the switches", Leonard said. "Side action is pretty even, however there is a noticeable majority (2-1) of parlays on Golden State +4.5". I just keep going and going. "It's a good sign". Also, the Green had 10.3 points, eight rebounds and 7.1 assists. PG Patty Mills has 582 career 3-pointers, one more than Hall of Famer Michael Jordan. The Spurs are 106-57 overall against the Warriors.
When you attend practice or see pregame warmups, there's Ian Clark practicing the Curry floater.
