Warriors' title defence gets tricky after Durant injury

After an MRI on Thursday, he was ruled out for Game 6 and Sunday's Game 7, should the Rockets extend the series to a decisive seventh game by following the pattern set by the home team claiming each game in this series. The Warriors coaching staff planned to use the flight to reconfigure rotations for Game 6 without Durant, and Kerr said, "I have a pretty good feeling for it, but I'm not about to share it with you or anybody else other than our team". "We just have to win one game so let's do it".

Can you imagine the Houston locker room if they lose Game 6?

Durant left Wednesday night's win over the Rockets in the third quarter after a non-contact injury that some feared was a torn achilles.

Antetokounmpo led seven players in double figures with 20 points and also tallied eight rebounds and a game-high eight assists. He's responded well. Obviously, we're disappointed he won't be able to play in this series. "I'm proud of our guys for pulling the game out, and we'll see how Kevin is doing (Thursday)".

"Hopefully, we get Kevin back at some point".

Durant's injury occurred innocently enough after he hit a jumper from the right side with 2:05 left in the third quarter.

He took a step forward then grimaced in pain and looked down at his lower right leg. "We're gonna have to find a way".

According to the source, Porzingis yelled at one of the men: "I'll send your a** back to Russia". A woman accused him of rape in late March, which was picked up by news outlets in early April.

Kevin Durant, the man whose 2016 arrival transformed the Golden State Warriors from incredible to unstoppable, limped to the locker room, and suddenly a dynasty's fate was back in the hands of its founding members. If the Warriors advance, Durant will likely miss at least one, if not several, games early on in the series.

With Durant out for Game 6 on Friday against the Rockets, the two-time defending champions are now consensus 7.5-point underdogs in Houston.

"Whoever has the ball, no matter if it's off a pick-and-roll, we swing, make the defense work, make decisions on that end of the floor", Curry said.

Harden has been struggling to get back to the NBA Finals since 2012.

For the second year in a row, the Golden State ended Houston's playoff dreams on the Rockets' home court.

"There is no excuse for the Houston Rockets not to win this series", said Smith. "We have championship rings", Kerr said.

"We want their best shot, you know what I mean?"
