PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Kevin Durant had 33 points and 10 rebounds, and the Golden State Warriors overcame Stephen Curry’s absence to hold off the Portland Trail Blazers 113-111 on Sunday night. Curry didn’t play because of the stomach flu, missing his first game of the season. Klay Thompson added 27 points for the Warriors, who have won 10 of their last 11 games. CJ McCollum had 25 points for Portland, which had won its last three games. Golden State swept all four games against the Blazers this season.

Kelsey Plum was again the star for Washington, scoring 44 points before fouling out in the closing seconds, but her supporting cast provided very little and allowed the Cardinal a chance to rally. Plum’s attempt at a tying 3-pointer with 6 seconds left bounced off the rim. It was her only 3-point miss of the game.
