Kevin Durant 'Looks Good' To Return If Warriors Advance In Playoffs

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson right looks to pass as Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul defends during the first half of Game 3 of a second-round NBA basketball playoff series Saturday

The Warriors also said that after an MRI, Durant was diagnosed with a mild right calf strain and will be re-evaluated next week.

After losing Games 2 and 5 at home to the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round this year, the top-seeded Warriors began a run of home-court wins against the Rockets with hard-fought, 104-100 and 115-109 triumphs. "We've always done well at home and we just have to keep it that way". Warriors will look to Curry and Play to win them the games and with high usage for such good shooters, will come points.

As these teams prepare for Game 6 of the conference semifinals Friday night, the Warriors find themselves in nearly the same situation Houston was in past year.

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

The Rockets trailed the Golden State Warriors by one point when Harden checked back into Wednesday's Game 5 with 7 minutes, 8 seconds remaining. After he departed with the injury, the rest of Golden State's array of stars helped the Warriors close it out. I apologize to my mom, who is probably watching, but our guys are f - ing giants. "We'll see what happens in the next couple days".

Steph Curry without Kevin Durant on the team averages almost 30 points per game to go with 7+ assists and 5+ rebounds.

"Any time you see something like that, it's scary", Curry said.

The Times quoted a lawyer for the president, Charles Harder, as saying the tax information was "highly inaccurate". Because most of his businesses were not created as partnerships, Trump was on the hook for federal income taxes.

Celtics' Smart cleared for full-contact practice, hopes to play Game 4
The Celtics, trailing 2-1 in this best-of-seven series, were desperate. "We'll have to bring that fight to them on Wednesday". The Celtics could get a key player back in guard Marcus Smart , who participated in practice Sunday.

But it is in our hands, don't forget but we could have been 10 points behind if we lost to Liverpool here. This club is what it is because of people like Vincent. "But we never give up, we are not far away".

Warriors coach Steve Kerr and guard Stephen Curry noted that Durant was understandably down after the injury, but there was a palpable sense of relief within the locker room that his injury wasn't more severe. He finished with 22 points in 32 minutes.

PRESSURE IS ON: Curry's Shot. That was, like, the lowest point of the game for me in terms of just searching.

"I mean, [Harden] does whatever we need to be done", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said.

Given that compressed time frame, it's hard to imagine Durant will return to a series that he has dominated. Through the first five games, the team which has led in rebounds has won the game.

Kevin Durant was averaging 35.4 points in the playoffs for Golden State. "But we got to be better offensively [and] defensively, especially myself". "So let's go out there and let it rip". We can't get it back.

His status after game 6 is unknown as a potential game 7 would be back in Golden State on Sunday.
