OG Anunoby added 17 points for Toronto (29-12), which suffered just its third home loss but finished a three-game homestand 1-2. Curry then ran out to the court and proceeded to go through his extensive, highly entertaining pre-game dribbling and shooting warmup which features one-legged shots, which test his balance, and three-pointers launched from near mid-court, among other things.

San Antonio won its 14th straight at the AT&T Center, improving the league's best home record to 19-2. "It's probably exactly where I was the last time I came back".
