Steph Curry tweaked his right ankle in the first quarter on Thursday night, but the Warriors rallied to pick up a 110-107 win over San Antonio to extend their winning streak to seven games after the All-Star break.

Curry has been dealing with issues on the same ankle throughout the season.

Stephen Curry, the primary reason for Golden State's three consecutive National Basketball Association finals appearances, also missed three weeks in December after spraining his left ankle. In December, he rolled his right ankle in a game that forced him to miss the ensuing 11 games.

The Warriors, 51-14, have won nine of their last 10 games but they're still a half game back of the Houston Rockets who are now riding a 17-game winning streak en route to an NBA-best 51-13 record.

As aptly described by ESPN, Curry suffered the injury after being fouled by Spurs guard Dejounte Murray while attempting a layup.

With the Rockets and Warriors not meeting again in the regular season, this race to the finish will simply boil down to which team is able to avoid any slip-ups down the stretch.

Australian Patty Mills contributed just eight points and two rebounds for the Spurs, who next face Oklahoma City. Thompson scored 13 points on only 5-of-16 from the field and 1-of-5 from 3-point range.

As for Curry, he limped back to the court without any assistance after his awkward landing. The Warriors ensured team balance. Curry sat on the bench during the Warriors' timeout before returning to the court and making a pair of free throws. He then made his way into the locker room. The Warriors then determined midway through the second quarter that Curry would not return.

The Spurs have now lost 9-of-12 and while technically the five seed in the West they are tied with the Thunder and Timberwolves in that spot, just two games ahead of falling out of the playoffs entirely.

"I'm not thinking about the No. 1 seed", Kerr said.

"It's a little different", Kerr said.

"We'll get Steph healthy". For the Warriors, David West (arm cyst) and Andre Iguodala (wrist sprain) are both doubtful to play.
