But it's clear the Warriors didn't need extra reconnaissance Thursday with Kevin Durant lighting up the Spurs for 14 consecutive points in the fourth quarter to finish with 37 on the night and 11 rebounds to lead Golden State's 110-107 comeback victory.

The All-Star won't travel with the team to Portland, and as a precaution he'll be held out of Sunday's game, giving him almost a full week of rest before a potential return Wednesday, when the Warriors return home to host the Lakers.
