Durant leaves Game 5 after apparent non-contact leg injury

The entire Golden State Warriors nation breathed a collective sigh of relief upon learning that Kevin Durant's injury was nothing more than a calf strain. "It's the perspective you have to have", Curry said. Regardless of what happens in Game 5, there are only, at a maximum, two more games before the Western Conference Finals, so the Warriors are likely hoping that Durant's time out will be as short as possible.

Durant limped to the locker room after landing awkwardly following a baseline jumper.

"If Kevin is out, what you saw in the fourth quarter is what you're going to have to see going forward", Kerr said. Durant dealt with a strained right calf last season, missing three games. "They've got a lot of guts. There was no speech necessary, they knew what they had to do".

James Harden scored 31 points for the Rockets, who will try to stave off elimination back home in Houston.

"Avengers: Endgame" apparently didn't end soon enough for Golden State Warriors sharpshooter Klay Thompson, who reportedly walked out of the Marvel blockbuster an hour early.

Draymond Green is three technical fouls away from a one-game suspension.

"I mean, [Harden] does whatever we need to be done", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said.

"It was such a weird game because we played so well in that second quarter". "Tough loss. We had opportunities", Houston's Chris Paul said. We've got to be better, offensively, defensively, especially myself, turnovers. "Rebounding, we actually was right there in the rebounds".
