Antentokounmpo matched up with Durant on most of the Warriors' possessions.
The three-time All-Star was a key part of a strong defensive effort in the fourth quarter as the Warriors made the Bucks shoot just 5-of-20 as a team in the final frame and outscored them 28-12.
Milwaukee returned to the court undeterred and slowly chipped the margin to eight before being dealt a tough blow when Antetokounmpo was called for his fourth foul. With Curry out, the Warriors instead focused on driving to the hoop and gave the Bucks fits at times with cutters. "Who cares", Thompson said after the game.
Curry had already missed 11 games this season with a sprained right ankle when he aggravated the injury at shootaround prior to Wednesday's game against the Clippers, which he also missed.
Curry should be back soon and could return for Saturday's game in Toronto or Sunday's marquee matchup at the Cavaliers. The call of a push-off on Durant forced Bucks coach Jason Kidd's hand as he removed his star from the game with just under five minutes left in the third.
