first_imgIt energized the reigning NBA champions.Stephen Curry scored 30 points in 30 minutes, Kevin Durant added 24 and the Warriors rode a big third-quarter run to pull away and beat the Miami Heat 123-95 on Sunday night. Curry and Durant didn’t even play in the fourth quarter, getting more unplanned but deserved time off.“Just needed to get some sun and hit the clubs,” Kerr deadpanned, the sarcasm clear. “That’s what the coaches and I did. We were out all night.”Klay Thompson scored 19 points for the Warriors, who started the second half on an 18-3 run and outscored Miami 37-17 in the third. Golden State’s lead was only two at the half then ballooned to 99-77 going into the fourth.Curry – playing with a sore finger on his shooting hand – had 16 of his points in the first quarter, then 10 more in the third.“Nothing magical or no secret sauce to it,” Curry said. “Just trying to be efficient.”Goran Dragic scored 20 points for the Heat. They led by eight in the early going and 36-33 after the first quarter. The Heat then scored 41 points in the next 24 minutes.“Golden State took it to a different level,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “What I wanted to see was a competitive response.”Starting with a layup by Curry late in the half, Golden State made 10 out of 11 shots in one stretch. Curry had two 3-pointers in that third-quarter barrage, and his driving score pushed the lead out to 80-63.At that point, he had 30 points in the game’s first 28.5 minutes. He didn’t score again, and the Warriors didn’t need much more help anyway.“The first half we competed with them,” Dragic said. “Second half, we didn’t.”Golden State would eventually lead by 33. Miami was outscored by 26 in the second half.

(AP Photo/Matthew Mead) This March 9, 2015 photo shows piloncillo used in gingery rhubarb compote with piloncillo and orange in Concord, N.H. (AP Photo/Matthew Mead) Unlike brown sugar, which usually is refined white sugar stirred together with molasses, piloncillo is the result of boiled down cane sugar juice, much like its Indian cousin, jaggery. Its flavor is complex, layered with fiery ginger, molasses, even rum. Its aroma is intoxicating, begging to be paired with warm spices like cinnamon, ground ginger and cloves.Like many brown sugars, it can resemble stone in density and hardness, so I suggest microwaving it for about 20 seconds, then chopping it up with your heaviest cleaver.This bold sugar is a perfect match for springtime’s most astringent offering, rhubarb. Every spring, I scour the farmers markets for those crimson stalks whose daring hues beat back winter’s gray. I make a big jar of rhubarb compote, assertively laced with fresh ginger, the warm Indian spice mix called garam masala, orange zest and the tiniest dusting of red chili flake. It tops everything from pork chops to my morning yogurt. Little did I know that this brave little compote has been missing a vital component until now: a sugar as pure as spring sunshine with enough fire to subdue rhubarb’s sour side.GINGERY RHUBARB COMPOTE WITH PILONCILLO AND ORANGEStart to finish: 20 minutesServings: 8Piloncillo is usually available wherever your supermarket stocks sweeteners or Latin American ingredients.2 pounds rhubarb, diced1 1/2 cups chopped piloncilloZest and juice of 1 navel orange2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger1 teaspoon garam masala (or pumpkin pie spice)Pinch of red chili flakesHefty pinch kosher saltIn a medium skillet over medium-low, combine all ingredients. Simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the rhubarb breaks down. Taste for seasoning and adjust according to your palate. Cool slightly before serving. Refrigerate leftovers.Nutrition information per serving: 120 calories; 0 calories from fat (0 percent of total calories); 0 g fat (0 g saturated; 0 g trans fats); 0 mg cholesterol; 31 g carbohydrate; 2 g fiber; 26 g sugar; 1 g protein; 35 mg sodium.EDITOR’S NOTE: Food Network star Aarti Sequeira is the author of “Aarti Paarti: An American Kitchen with an Indian Soul.” She blogs athttps://www.AartiPaarti.com . Given the size of my sweet tooth (think saber tooth tiger), I have myriad sweeteners in my cupboards. White, brown and coconut sugars, crunchy turbinado, honey, date syrup and molasses, they all line the shelves alongside a curious specimen that looks something like a gnome’s hat.That hat is called piloncillo and it’s one of my favorites, not only for its deep caramel flavor, but also because as far as sugar goes, it’s as close as you can get to biting down on a stalk of sugarcane itself (a treat I’d occasionally enjoy as a child).center_img This March 9, 2015 photo shows gingery rhubarb compote with piloncillo and orange in Concord, N.H.
