Durant calf strain more serious than first thought - Kerr

The Trail Blazers looked worn out, which was expected after they went toe-to-toe with the Denver Nuggets for seven games and then had just one day off.

Things came full circle for Portland Trail Blazers guard C.J. McCollum when he met the woman who criticized him on social media previous year before Thursday's game against the Golden State Warriors.

Warriors: The Warriors are 31-4 in the post-season when Curry scores 30 or more points.

The Warriors said Durant "has shown good progress since beginning his rehabilitation program one week ago".

In the 44 total games the Warriors have played on the road in the playoffs under Kerr, they have been on average a 3.4-point favorite.

However, the Warriors reached the NBA Finals twice - winning once - and they won a record 73 games before Durant arrived. He was like: "'Alright, it's going to be 72.' He made them both, so he wasn't fazed".

When will Kevin Durant return to action? He's been on fire since Durant went out and has been a huge asset to the team.

Statistical data proves the team wins at a higher rate when Curry is the sole superstar in uniform. "Seth was incredible tonight, he nearly won the game for them".

Yet, you'll hear statements like this from Curry: "We miss our guy". "We'll be ready for him when he's ready".

It's certainly been a rough night on the production side of things. "It's up to everybody to step their game up a couple notches". Down by eight to the Portland Trail Blazers at home with 4 1/2 minutes to go, they needed every last burst, flawless pass, driving layup and dunk.

Durant (and Curry, who approved his inclusion) made sure of that.

Stephen Curry scored 37 points as the Golden State Warriors fought back to defeat the Portland Trail Blazers 114-111 and take a 2-0 lead in their NBA Western Conference finals series Thursday.

So, there's lots of basketball still left to play. Each of those teams will pose a worthy threat to a Warrior team with a healthy Kevin Durant in its starting five, much more so, in the event Durant doesn't become available for a possible Finals matchup with either team.
