GAME NOTEBOOK:
Golden State guard Stephen Curry will be sidelined at least another two weeks with a sprain in his surgically repaired right ankle. He will be reevaluated then, though it appears unlikely he will play again this season. … Hornets guard Eric Gordon (knee), out since January, could be back by this weekend. “He's excited about getting back. Right now I think it's a matter of days,” said coach Monty Williams. … Thompson got Golden State’s first fast-break points on a 3-pointer with 8:43 left in the third quarter.
