Luckily, Durant and the Warriors immediately woke back up and were able to slam the door shut on the Bucks in the fourth quarter en route to a key 108-94 road victory on Friday night.

Without star point guard Steph Curry, the Golden State Warriors aren't close to playing in peak form.

Curry missed most of December with an ankle sprain and aggravated it on Wednesday, slipping during shootaround, and has not played since.

All five starters scored in double figures for the Bucks, who have won seven of their past 12 games and eight of their past 11 at home. The Warriors outscored the Bucks 28-12 in the fourth quarter, with Milwaukee shooting only 5-of-20 (25 percent) from the field. The Warriors' four-time All-Star missed almost the entire month of December (11 games) with a sprained right ankle.

Giannis Antetokounmpo did everything in his power to keep the Bucks in the game with 23 points and seven rebounds, but the Warriors defense held the team to 42.4 percent shooting from the field. The highlight was Nick Young rushing up the court to nail a 34-foot contested 3-pointer as time expired to give the Warriors a 36-27 lead.

A stronger effort on the defensive end fueled Milwaukee in the second quarter. West's energy off the bench has been a consistent theme for Golden State this season, and he helped the Warriors rebound after a slow third quarter. It had the Warriors on the ropes early in the fourth quarter, but the offense went ice-cold after Malcolm Brogdon's dunk extended the lead to 84-80. The fan was ultimately ejected after Thompson, West and Shaun Livingston complained to officials and arena security, and after that point, the Warriors rolled past the Bucks.
