Kevin Durant to miss at least remainder of series against Rockets

Kevin Durant to miss at least remainder of series against Rockets

That is series the Warriors should get Kevin Durant back during.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr ruled Durant out for Game 6, before the Warriors star is set to get an MRI on Thursday. He supplied the energy for Golden State after two losses at Houston evened the series.

The Warriors are 26-1 in their last 27 games when Curry plays but Durant does not. Rarely is a switch flipped so immediately and so forcefully.

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. No Durant. No DeMarcus Cousins.

We will see about a lot. "But he's not playing Game 6".

"You lose your best player, it's deflating", Thompson admitted. If they do, they might never be able to get over it. Paul has worked his entire career to get this type of chance.

Andre Iguodala added 11 points, while Green had a brilliant all-around game before fouling out, complementing eight points with 12 rebounds and 11 assists.

Looney was very solid in 22 minutes Wednesday, but he hasn't played more than that in almost three months. "When I walked into the coach's office after the game, the replay of the play was going on". But this one was close. If the Warriors advance, Durant will likely miss at least one, if not several, games early on in the series.

INJURY WATCH: Durant didn't make the trip to Houston, remaining in the Bay Area to receive treatment for his injury. "You could see the look on his face".

"We all looked at each other", Curry said.

Golden State almost gave it away with an very bad third quarter, when the Warriors managed just 15 points and committed six turnovers.

"Disappointed for him", Kerr said. I've seen that before with guys who have hurt their Achilles'. "That was an unbelievable victory tonight".

The Warriors took a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series, but Durant's status cast a shadow over the win.

Given that compressed time frame, it's hard to imagine Durant will return to a series that he has dominated.

'It's amazing' Elsewhere, Milwaukee became the first team to reach the NBA's final four as the top-seeded Bucks beat the visiting Boston Celtics with a 116-91 series-clinching victory. They are also 29-4 in games without Durant in which guard Steph Curry is available. "We'll have to reconfigure the rotation".

PRESSURE IS ON: Curry's Shot. San Antonio won in six, the closeout game a 114-75 rout of the Rockets at Toyota Center - with Harden fouling out after a 2-of-11 shooting performance. "We're going to have to find a way".

All post-season long, Durant has bailed out the Warriors with timely shots, smart passes, and breathtaking stretches of elite all-around play.

For the first time in three years, the Warriors are beatable.
