The Warriors, who got Draymond Green back from his suspension but were without Stephen Curry for the fourth straight game, have lost two of their last three. Curry has already been ruled out for Golden State’s next two games because of a groin injury. “We’re banged up a little bit physically and right now we’re banged up spiritually,” Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. “There’s no getting around that. So we’ve got to fill up our cup and get our spirit back, get our energy back and we’re going to. It’s a long season and this is a tough stretch we’re dealing with.” Houston had a 13-point lead after three and opened the fourth quarter with a 12-2 run to make it 88-65 and spur Kerr to call a timeout. The Rockets then scored the first nine points after the timeout, with six from James Ennis, to make it 97-65 midway through the quarter and put the game out of reach. Both teams cleared their benches a couple of minutes after that.
