Kris Dunn falls face first to floor, shatters teeth after fastbreak dunk

Kris Dunn falls face first to floor, shatters teeth after fastbreak dunk

Stephen Curry returned from a two-game absence to score 24 points, Klay Thompson had 26 and the Golden State Warriors blew almost all of a 27-point lead before beating the Toronto Raptors 127-125 on Saturday night.

In the month of January, the two-time MVP Curry is averaging 30.8 ppg, 7 apg, 5.8 rpg and 1.7 spg while shooting 56 percent from the floor and 45 percent from deep.

Klay Thompson scored 38 points while Stephen Curry added 30 points for the Warriors.

Kevin Durant scored 19 with eight rebounds and seven assists. The Los Angeles Lakers hold the record with 16 straight road wins during the 1971-72 season.

Fortunately for the Warriors (36-10), that secured a 14th consecutive road victory to match the franchise's longest-road winning streak that they also set in the 2015-16 season.

"It's going to be tough, especially if it's a close game in the fourth", LaVine told the Chicago Tribune.

The Bulls overcame rough shooting nights from Zach Lavine and Justin Holiday (both 2-12) thanks to 16-point performances from Kris Dunn and Robin Lopez, as well as 24 points from Nikola Mirotic off the bench. Dunn was spitting up blood after the play, and after staying down for a few minutes, he was helped off the court. Though X-rays came out negative, the Warriors diagnosed Bell with a sprained left ankle and would not return to the game.

Chicago went on a 17-0 run in the first half before the Warriors matched a 17-0 burst in the 32-12 third quarter. The Golden State Warriors haven't lost a road game since November 22. The Bulls announced Dunn dislocated teeth as well. If he reaches his potential, the rest of the league will have quite a hard time dealing with him. He hung with Curry through a pump-fake and some fancy dancing at the three-point line before Curry made a decision to take him to the basket. Golden State's 19 road wins are the most in the National Basketball Association. The Chicago Bulls are averaging 102.8 points on 44.1 percent shooting and allowing 108.3 points on 46.7 percent shooting.

"We'll get together with the medical staff tomorrow and we'll map out a plan moving forward for the next week", Hoiberg said.

The first basket of the game had some bad mojo.

Yet at the end of the day an eager Bulls team simply didn't have enough for Golden State, even without Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala in the lineup. Golden State hit 13-of-33 by the same margin.
