Curry was escorted back to the locker room shortly before the opening tip. The Warriors reported a few minutes later that the league’s third-leading scorer wasn’t feeling well.
Despite Curry’s last-minute scratch, the Warriors led 100-98 and had possession of the ball after Draymond Green grabbed an offensive rebound with 15.7 seconds left.
But Green got two technical fouls and was ejected from the game, leading to Rozier’s tying free throws and subsequent game-winner.
