Pistons beat Warriors to win fifth straight, Raptors roll on

Steve Kerr blamed himself for the Warriors loss against the Pistons on Saturday night

Getty Images Warriors' Steph Curry returned to the court on Saturday.

Curry shot three of nine from three-point range and also grabbed five rebounds in the loss. As has often been the case this season for the Hawks, the team was thoroughly outplayed in terms of starter to starter comparison and it was the team's bench that produced much of the momentum.

And while Golden State is off to a slower start (15-9) than in the past, the Warriors just got guard Steph Curry back from an 11-game absence due to a left groin strain. Just didn't have the right timing, wasn't seeing the floor very well, or seeing the rim very well, for that matter.

"It felt good to be back out there", Curry said after the game.

Golden State guard Klay Thompson, who tallied 21 points against the Pistons, said it should not take the team long to re-adjust to playing with Curry.

The Warriors couldn't overcome Detroit's dominance on the offensive boards, with just eight offensive rebounds compared to 14 for Detroit.

Pistons: The Pistons have won two straight against Golden State after losing 12 of their previous 13 games against the Warriors.
