Andre Iguodala's absence leaves Warriors' bench thin in loss


Stephen Curry, Jordan Bell and Andre Iguodala were all out with injuries Friday night for Golden State's game against the Trail Blazers.

Karl-Anthony Towns dominated inside, finishing with 31 points and 16 rebounds for a Timberwolves team that had lost three straight, all without injured All-Star guard Jimmy Butler.

Curry has played in 50 of the Warriors' 66 games.

As far as Western Conference implications go, this was a big one.

ROCKETS 105, MAVERICKS 82: Eric Gordon scored 26 points, and Chris Paul had 24 points and 12 assists as Houston, playing without James Harden, who had a sore left knee, won at Dallas.

Iggy is averaging 18.8 FanDuel points per game this season. He held out his long arms and cupped his hands to encourage the crowd as the last seconds ticked off the clock.

76ERS 120, NETS 97: Joel Embiid scored 21 points, Robert Covington added 19 and Philadelphia won at NY. Draymond Green added 10 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and three steals. Taj Gibson had an 11-point, 13-rebound double-double.
