The victory being referred to here was the only one Golden State experienced in Detroit on Saturday - Stephen Curry's return to game action after missing the previous 11 contests with a groin injury.

Steph Curry finally returned to the Warriors lineup on Saturday night, however, the night didn't go as planned as they trailed for most of the game and never seemed to get into a groove offensively against the Detroit Pistons.

"That's obviously a great win", Griffin said. "We've got to get more spacing, get better flow".

"Now it's just about getting my time and seeing the floor - getting adjusted".

"Wasn't [Curry's] best game", Kerr said, "but I'm not at all anxious about Steph".

The Warriors won by a final margin of 110-103, and the Atlanta Hawks were able to keep it close throughout but ultimately fell to a combined 53 points from Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson.

The Warriors couldn't overcome Detroit's dominance on the offensive boards, with just 8 offensive rebounds compared to 14 for Detroit. Just as important for Detroit, coach Dwane Casey was able to use his reserves for most of the fourth quarter in the first game of a back-to-back. The Pistons took a 14-point lead early in the third quarter before Golden State - held to 46 first-half points - got its offense rolling and pulled within two.

Kawhi Leonard helped the Raptors continue their hot start. "I've got to do a better job", Kerr told reporters after the loss (via The Mercury News). He said he thought his play improved throughout the game. After a slow start to the season, Thompson's lit it up as of late.

Andre Drummond had 16 points and 19 rebounds and Reggie Jackson scored 17 points and made some big shots, including what appeared to be the clincher with 45 seconds to go. Toronto also is a league-best 10-2 on the road.

The Raptors have reached the 20-win mark quicker than any other team in franchise history. The Wizards scored the first 11 points of the second half and took a 53-39 lead.

Cleveland got George Hill back after the starting guard missed 11 games with a sprained right shoulder, but he only delivered eight points.

Elsewhere, Emmanuel Mudiay scored 28 points and rookie Kevin Knox tallied a career-high 26 as the visiting New York Knicks outlasted the high-flying Milwaukee Bucks in overtime, 136-134.
