Curry scored 10 points before he departed — his second straight game with fewer than 20.
“Sometimes you’ve got to get hit in the mouth in this league to remind you how hard it is to win a game,” Kerr said, adding that Green’s absence wasn’t the Warriors’ biggest problem.
George led the way, pulling down 11 rebounds, handing out six assists and coming up with six steals — one shy of his career record.
Carmelo Anthony, who played for the Thunder last season before being traded to the Rockets, epitomized Houston’s woes as he endured a nightmare return to Oklahoma City.
Kyrie Irving scored 18 of his 39 points in the fourth quarter and overtime for Boston and Marcus Morris added 17 points against his former team.
In Phoenix, the Boston Celtics rallied from a 22-point third-quarter deficit to hand the Suns a heartbreaking 116-109 overtime defeat.
That included a three-pointer with 1.1 seconds remaining in regulation that knotted the score at 100-100.
