McCaw stretchered off court in Warriors win

McCaw stretchered off court in Warriors win

Stephen Curry's MCL sprain raises big questions for the defending champion Golden State Warriors.

McCaw was soaring high for a possible dunk with 41.8 seconds left in the third quarter when Sacramento legend and dunk star Vince Carter bumped his right shoulder into McCaw's left leg. McCaw fell to the floor in pain and rolled around on the ground before being tended to by anxious teammates, trainers and Golden 1 Center medical personnel who quickly arrived at the scene.

"I just hope he's OK", Carter told reporters. He has a bright future.

Golden State coach Steve Kerr was visibly disappointed with Carter, telling the referee: "God damn it". "I don't like to see him sitting there in pain saying he can't feel his lower half".

Tests from the University of California at Davis Medical Center on Sunday confirmed that McCaw did not have any structural damage and that he would be released later in the day.

Based on comments from McCaw's Warriors teammates including Kevin Durant and Draymond Green, the feeling is that Carter's play was accidental with no malice intended towards McCaw.

Ghostly galaxy without dark matter stuns astronomers
Therefore, researchers were surprised when they uncovered a galaxy that is missing most, if not all, of its dark matter. His stars are enough to explain his whole mass, and there seems to be no extra space for dark matter, "he added".

It was a scary moment at Golden 1 Center, as the crowd gasped and suddenly turned quiet as McCaw lay motionless on the ground. But even in the wake of that good news, the memory of McCaw - arms folded over his chest and neck in a brace - as he was placed on a stretcher is probably still fresh in players' memories.

The two have only ever played together for Team USA, namely in the 2012 London Olympics, where the United States fought off all comers to claim gold. "Vince felt frightful. I was out there next to [Carter]".

Golden State's victory was the 263rd under coach Steve Kerr, tying him for third-most in franchise history. Green said "Vince is not that type of guy" and mentioned he "never" has been.

Kevin Durant paced the Warriors on Sunday against the Suns, recorded a near triple-double with 29 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists and two blocks in 35 minutes.

"I know Vince's spirit and his heart". A guy jumps and he didn't touch him much, but if you're as high as you can jump, you lose your balance easier.

Kerr's club began turning things around late in the second quarter shortly after Suns' two-way player Danuel House pump-faked past Nick Young, threw the ball off the backboard then grabbed it and dunked. "I know that was tough on Vince".
