"I think it's good news", Kerr told reporters Thursday.

The Golden State Warriors visit the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference second round with a 3-2 lead in the series.

The Warriors were already prepared to be without their leading scorer for Friday's Game 6 at the Toyota Center in Houston, regardless of the outcome of his MRI.

Curry on what people have been saying about him since he struggled in Game 3: 'The last 48 hours have been pretty amusing, hearing all the noise and chatter about how I've been playing in this series, and I take it all in stride and understand what I'm capable of. Over the final 12 minutes, they invoked memories of their memorable 73-win run led by the original Big 3, escaping with a 104-99 victory to move within one game of the Western Conference Finals.

With forward Kevin Durant sidelined, Curry and Thompson took over, combining for 60 points. It sounds insane, I know, but based on what the team already has, especially under the preface that Leonard might join the team, signing Thompson would only make it hard for rotations and minutes.

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

The lander would have liquid hydrogen-liquid oxygen propulsion, precision guidance, vertical landing and landing gear systems. Robert Walker, a private space consultant who is working with Blue Origin, said it plans for a 2023 launch without people.

"This one's going to leave a mark", coach Mike D'Antoni said.

Durant's injury occurred innocently enough after he hit a jumper from the right side with just over two minutes left in the third quarter.

Draymond Green and Klay Thompson nailed clutch three pointers late in the fourth quarter for the Warriors but the buzz after the game was not about the win but rather the health of Durant.

Rockets: Averaging 108.1 points, 43.2 rebounds, 18.0 assists, 8.5 steals and 5.5 blocks per game while shooting 44.1 per cent from the field.

To make matters worse, up until KD's injury, Stephen Curry, the team's other MVP, was struggling. The renown surgeon said the mild sprain is likely "somewhere between a Grade 1 and Grade 2 strain, which is going to likely keep him out for two weeks in a best-case scenario". Gordon, who had a play-off career-high 30 points in Game 3, scored 20 points or more in consecutive play-off games for the first time in his career. "We can all pretend and just say he's doubtful".
