Warriors’ title defence gets tricky after Durant injury

Stephen Curry in action. More

The Warriors, who have a 3-2 lead in the best of seven series, played in Houston on Friday night and would return to Oracle Arena for a deciding Game 7 on Sunday if needed. "So I'll just, you know, lean on what we've done in the past and you don't take those experiences and try and channel them tonight". And, the Rockets are trying to match that pace that KD and the Warriors were playing with through the first five games of the series. "We got to go back home and take care of Game 6".

"We're at a great spot".

Durant left Wednesday's contest with a right calf strain which he suffered without receiving any contact.

Durant appeared to suffer the injury late in the third quarter after attempting a mid-range jump shot. After undergoing an MRI, it was clear that Durant had a right calf strain which will keep him out of the rest of the second-round. "I'm proud of our guys for pulling the game out, and we'll see how Kevin is doing (Thursday)". "But we'll see how it all pans out".

Michael Owen states his prediction for Liverpool FC v FC Barcelona
"Celebrating the goal last week, people know the importance of scoring in a Champions League semi-final", Suarez added. Hard to argue with this quote after watching that performance from Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool and the fans at Anfield.

Green, who grabbed 12 rebounds and dished 11 assists in Game 5, will be tasked with holding down the glass, protecting Golden State's backside defence and orchestrating offensive possessions. "We'll have to claw our way to one more win", Curry said. Golden State outscored Houston 32-27 in the final period, holding James Harden to just five points in the quarter and receiving vintage performances from Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. "I have to go back and look at the game". The Warriors said he'll be re-evaluated next week.

There was instant speculation from the TNT broadcasting crew that Durant might have torn his Achilles' tendon, but the update from the Warriors indicated a much less severe injury. He entered Wednesday averaging 35.4 points while shooting 51.8% from the field and 42.9% from 3-point range in the playoffs.

The model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, is crushing its National Basketball Association picks. We've got to be better, offensively, defensively, especially myself, turnovers. Let this one go ... it's over and done with.

The fourth-seeded Rockets flipped the tables with 126-121 and 112-108 home wins, dominating the Warriors on the boards to the tune of 52.5 per game to 39.0, while also slightly outshooting Golden State 46.2 percent to 45.4.
