Superstar Kevin Durant injured in Golden State Warriors’ playoff win over Houston

Warriors' Klay Thompson left ‘Avengers Endgame’ early

It's obviously great news that Durant is not seriously injured, but it's awful news for the Warriors that they will have to grind out this series without their best player.

By winning the second consecutive game at home, Houston evened their Western Conference semifinals series at 2-2 while the Bucks notched up a 3-1 lead against Boston and moved just one win from their first trip to the Eastern Conference finals since 2001.

Baynes put his body on the line and repeatedly thwarted Antetokounmpo from launching to the basket. He's averaging a team-high 34.2 points per game with 5.2 rebounds and 4.9 assists.

Durant strained his right calf in the third quarter of the Warriors' 104-99 win against the Rockets on Wednesday in Oakland. After the way Durant landed on the shot, several Twitter users immediately assumed the worst.

Game 6 is set to be played in Houston on Friday - the Rockets facing elimination.




Melbourne-born Irving dominated the offence, openly criticised his younger team- mates and is expected to depart the Celtics and sign with the New York Knicks or another suitor in the off-season. Initially, players and coaches feared that Durant tore his Achilles tendon, but Kerr was told by the Warriors' medical staff that was not the case.

Totaling 1,130 points, Curry was followed by then San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard (634 points) and then Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (631 points) in the MVP voting. Draymond Green brought tremendous energy with 12 rebounds and 11 assists.

All season long, the biggest re-occurring question has been what Kevin Durant may do in free agency this summer.

"For me, it is moving on to the next thing and just seeing where that ends up", Irving said.
