The Golden State Warriors were beaten by the Toronto Raptors on Curry’s return.

STEPH CURRY SCORED 23 points on his return from a four-month layoff but the Golden State Warriors were downed by the Toronto Raptors 121-113.

Curry, twice NBA Most Valuable Player, broke his hand against the Phoenix Suns in October with injury to another key player Klay Thompson meaning the Warriors sit bottom of the Western Conference.

Kyle Lowry scored 26 points and Norman Powell added 33 as the Raptors spoiled Curry’s return and sealed a play-off place, with Toronto sitting second in the Eastern Conference, nine games behind the Milwaukee Bucks.
