Steph Curry is getting a night to rest.

When the Warriors host the Mavs on Saturday night, the two-time MVP will not take the floor, according to the NBA's official injury report.

Andrew Bogut and Shaun Livingston will also be out for rest.

Curry racked up 48 points on 17-for-32 shooting when the Warriors won in Dallas on Jan. 13.

The six-time All-Star has played in 48 straight games since returning on Dec. 1 after missing 11 contests because of a strained left groin.

Before the All-Star break, he averaged 28.6 points and shot 48.8 percent from the field and 44.4 percent from beyond the arc.

Since the break, those numbers have slipped to 25.2 points while shooting below 42 percent overall and 38.5 percent from deep.

So yes, even the only unanimous MVP in NBA history can use a night off every once in a while.

Is Jordan Poole-Zendaya date happening? Warriors rookie says he's trying

Is Jordan Poole-Zendaya date happening? Warriors rookie says he's trying

Jordan Poole isn't about to give up on his dream date.

The Warriors rookie shot his shot five days ago, and now he's going to try to get that date with actress and singer Zendaya.

"We're about to see," Poole told NBC Sports Bay Area's Logan Murdock at the House of Highlights camp in Hayward on Saturday.

Earlier this week, Klay Thompson's girlfriend Laura Harrier posted cute photos on Instagram of the couple in London. Zendaya, who is from Oakland, commented on the post.

That's when Poole slid into the comments and tried to score a double date with Zendaya.

Poole's daring ask definitely caught everyone's attention, though it didn't draw a response from Zendaya.

Poole spent a good portion of the week with Klay Thompson in Newport Beach at the Thompson Family Foundation Golf Tournament, but he didn't consult with the All-Star shooting guard on trying to set up the double date.

"Nah, it was a freestyle," Poole said.

If Poole knows how he's going to lock down the double date, he's not divulging details. He played coy when asked for his plan.

"We'll see," Poole said. "We'll find out."

Klay Thompson proclaims Warriors' championship dynasty 'far from over'

All the national pundits and talking heads have danced on the grave of the Warriors' dynasty.

With Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston gone, and Klay Thompson out for a large portion of the upcoming season after ACL surgery, most believe the Warriors' reign of dominance is over.

But Thompson isn't listening to the noise. The Warriors might be down, but they aren't out.

"The dynasty ain't over," Klay said Friday during the second annual Thompson Family Foundation golf tournament in Newport Beach, Calif. "It's far from over."

After five season atop the NBA mountain, the Warriors no longer are the favorites to win the title, and they will look vastly different this season.

At the beginning of the season, Steph Curry and Draymond Green will be flanked by newcomers D'Angelo Russell and Willie Cauley-Stein. Instead of Durant at the starting small forward spot, Warriors coach Steve Kerr might go with Alfonzo McKinnie.

Super Death Lineup this is not.

Making matters tougher for the Warriors is the improvement of other teams in the Western Conference. The Clippers, Lakers, Jazz and Rockets all made blockbuster moves over the summer, while the Nuggets and Blazers return teams that were top-four playoff seeds in the West last season.

But once Thompson returns in February or March, the Warriors will be able to close games with a lineup of Curry, Thompson, Russell, Green and Kevon Looney, who signed a three-year contract in the offseason.

As Green said last week, no one will want to face the Warriors in the playoffs. That will be especially true if Thompson is 100 percent in April.

Durant isn't around anymore, but the dynasty isn't dead until Curry, Thompson and Green say it is.
