Houston Looks to Swing the Series with a Big Game 5 Upset

Houston Looks to Swing the Series with a Big Game 5 Upset

Kevin Durant will miss the remainder of the Golden State Warriors' Western Conference semifinal against the Houston Rockets with a strained right calf.

Durant limped to the locker room after landing awkwardly on his right foot following a baseline jumper with 2:11 left in the third quarter of Wednesday's 104-99 victory at Oracle Arena.

Steph Curry without Kevin Durant on the team averages almost 30 points per game to go with 7+ assists and 5+ rebounds. While Golden State now holds a 3-2 series lead, it heads back to Houston for Friday's Game 6.

Durant will not travel with the Warriors to Houston for game six, instead remaining in the San Francisco Bay region for treatment ahead of being re-evaluated next week.

The Warriors have become even more reliant on him against the Rockets as sharpshooter Stephen Curry has gone cold and is connecting on just 26 per cent of his three-pointer attempts. "But we'll see how it all pans out". "We've got a lot of competitors on this team that play with great heart".

Curry and the rest of the Warriors were thankful Durant wasn't more seriously hurt.

HBO digitally removes Starbucks cup from latest 'Game of Thrones'
One person said: "My favourite show in the entire world forgot a Starbucks coffee cup on the table while filming". We're now in the dreaded lull between Game of Thrones episodes, the worst part of the week.

"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. They lost Game 7 at the Toyota Center and the Warriors went on to win their second straight National Basketball Association title.

The only thing I can think of is this was the moment Harden's usage-heavy season - he led the league with a 40.5 usage percentage, over seven percent higher than the No. 2 player, Joel Embiid - might have physically caught up.

"I mean, I don't know". "Guys who haven't had opportunities yet (in this series) will have opportunities". The Rockets need Paul to step up after the nine-time All-Star struggled in Game 5. The two-time Finals MVP will undergo an MRI on Thursday, and it's not yet known whether he will make the trip to Houston.

"I'm never going to waver with my confidence when it comes to shooting ... but it's the playoffs", he said. Looney for all his terrific attributes cannot go 36 minutes in a game.

Harden is a big part of that this series, averaging 39.5 points per game in Houston, while popping for just 31.7 points per game in the three games in Oakland.
