Stephen Curry had two points and six assists in his first game since March 11 while Klay Thompson scored 11 points for the Warriors (2-0). Curry had surgery in April to repair his injured right ankle. Golden State led 69-58 in the fourth quarter before Utah made a late run behind center Enes Kanter. Kanter had 12 points and 11 rebounds and made a layup with 1:01 remaining that pulled the Jazz within 83-80. Paul Millsap and Marvin Williams had 13 points apiece for Utah (0-1). Curry played only 12 minutes and didn't score until making an 18-foot turnaround jumper late in the second quarter. He was clearly fatigued and stayed in the locker room after halftime icing his ankle.
