Kevin Durant out for rest of series vs. Rockets with strained calf

Adjust Comment Print

The Warriors' win guarantees their loyal fans in the East Bay at least one more home game at Oracle Arena before the team moves to new Chase Center in San Francisco for next season. He's that good of a player, obviously, and the Rockets with James Harden are that much of a threat.

Golden State star Kevin Durant strained his right calf during the third quarter of the Warriors' 104-99 playoff victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night, leaving his status uncertain for the remainder of the Western Conference semifinal.

Thompson apparently had other things to think about instead of the story of the three-hour film, which topped the $2 billion revenue mark over the weekend.

Warriors: Averaging 119.5 points, 43.7 rebounds, 28.6 assists, 7.1 steals and 6.1 blocks per game while shooting 48.8 percent from the field. "We have championship rings", Kerr said. Whenever the Warriors needed bailing out, Durant usually came through with smashing results, and now that high-level insurance will be missing from this series and perhaps a portion of the Western Conference finals if the Warriors manage to advance. The Warriors lead the series 3-2.

"People say, 'They won one, ' Well they did, and they was terrific".

Michael Malone Reacts To Denver School Shooting: "This Is An Epidemic"
Josh Dutton, 18, told AP news agency he used to be friends with Mr Erickson at a former school but had not seen him in four years. On Tuesday, two suspects shot up the STEM School Highlands Ranch , killing at least one student and injuring eight more.

Kerr confirmed that Durant would undergo the MRI on Thursday. "We'll have to reconfigure the rotation".

Still, Stephen Curry performed when Golden State needed it the most.

The Warriors are 26-1 in their last 27 games when Curry plays but Durant does not.

Golden State has scarcely used its bench this series, but now has no choice given that Durant, the National Basketball Association playoffs' leading scorer, has played 42.4 minutes per game against Houston. Iguodala will see more time guarding Harden, who scored a game-high 31 points before going quiet down the stretch, and will be called upon as a secondary distributor more often. Now it's time for the teammates who recruited him three years ago to return the favour.
