Kevin Durant goes down in 3rd quarter with right calf strain

  • 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

It appears the Warriors have avoided disaster for now, as Durant's injury could have been much worse based on the way he landed.

National Basketball Association history will long remember Golden State's 104-99 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, a frenetic Game 5 that left the champs juggling elation and disappointment.

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. He's averaged 35.4 points in 39.7 minutes per game this postseason. "He's been phenomenal", Kerr said. Should the Warriors advance, that same timetable would see him return right around Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.

In spite of the Warriors pulling off a 104-99 triumph to take a 3-2 best-of-seven second round series edge, the mood is now one of concern for the two-time defending champions. Wearing a grin usually reserved for post-championship champagne baths, the Warriors coach channelled Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp's reaction to a 4-0 win over Barcelona on Tuesday. But a calf injury to Kevin Durant has thrown the rest of the series into a state of uncertainty. That's why tonight's Game 5 action may be foretelling for how the series will go. If Golden State can't close out the series, Game 7 will be Sunday (ABC, 3:30 p.m. ET). Everybody who knows basketball, he's the guy who made them a dynasty.

"He's not going to play Game 6".

Sheriff Says Shots Fired At School In Suburban Denver
On May 7, officials identified the juvenile suspect, who has not been named, believing she was a boy at first. Police confirm 2 suspects are in custody and they're searching for a possible third suspect.

The Warriors announced that Durant had suffered a right calf strain and would be out for the game.

Durant will undergo an MRI for further results on Thursday.

"With Kevin out, it changes everything", Kerr said. Look for a by-committee approach, with centre Kevon Looney, guard Shaun Livingston, and wings Jonas Jerebko and Alfonzo McKinnie all pitching in to fill the void.

Stephen Curry struggled with his shot yet again and finished with 25 points on 9-for-23 shooting.

But it means Harden has to step up in crunch time. But that was like five years ago.
