SAN FRANCISCO -- Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry and forward Draymond Green did not play in the team's regular-season finale against the Utah Jazz on Sunday afternoon, a 123-116 win.

"[Curry] could play. If he had to play, he would be playing," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said before the victory. "Given what we are facing, it made no sense to put him out there today. We're hoping that we've got three games this week, so getting a rest today, getting time to recover before that first play-in game, that's much more important."

Gary Payton IImissed his third consecutive game with a left calf strain.

The Warriors are the No. 10 seed in the playoffs and will play at the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday.
