Durant going back to the locker room after reaching for his Achilles...
I'm getting terrible Kobe Bryant flashbacks here.

The Splash Bros. FINALLY showed up! Saved the game after Kevin Durant went down!

That really does suck for KD. Hopefully it is a calf strain. Boogie's hurt, now Durant is hurt, and Green fouls out. They could've blown this game, but they didn't. I gotta give them props, Warriors have tenacity and heart.



Depending on how serious Durant's calf injury is, he could be fully healed in no time or a very long while.
A Grade I calf strain takes around 10 days to fully heal
A Grade II calf strain takes around 6 weeks.
A Grade III strain takes 3 months.
Absolute best case scenario the Warriors could hope for is a Grade I. But, it looks more like a Grade II.

Either way, K.D. won't be 100% come Game 6. So, he may likely have to sit out.

Tonight is a 'legacy game' for James Harden and Chris Paul. The Rockets and their fans complained last year that they would have won if Paul didn't get hurt. Well here they are this year, their team completely healthy and the Warriors are limping. KD & Boogie are out, the Splash Bros. aren't 100%. The Warriors have never been more vulnerable than they are right now. They BETTER show up and lead the Rockets to a victory tonight, or else they have absolutely no excuse whatsoever.

How quickly they all forget!
It doesn't matter how you start, it's how you finish!
The FIRST AND ONLY UNANIMOUS MVP, STEPHEN CURRY, shows up and shows out in the 4th quarter, when it mattered most!
Golden State is going back to the Western Conference Finals.

Ugh this sucks the Rockets should have won the series and with some minor luck and better officiating the could have done it in five games. Anyway go Nuggets since they have a better chance of knocking out the Warriors then the Blazers and are a healthier team.

One good game from curry and you go crazy. Lets see he does it more consistently. Klays 1st half was just as amazing

They had all their important players and pieces. No Kevin Durant for the rest of the series after he got injured in the 3rd quarter of Game 5, a game where they went into the 4th quarter tied. Stephen Curry doing jack shit in the first half with 0 points & 3 fouls, AND they were in Houston.  How much more luck do you think they needed? Like I said before, the Warriors have never been more vulnerable throughout their entire run than they were tonight. This was it! This was served on an silver platter for the Rockets. This was the best opportunity they ever had up to this point to finally get past the Warriors and be one step closer to an NBA Championship and they couldn't seal the deal.

The Houston Rockets, as they are, are just not championship material.

what a performance by the Warriors! Everyone showed up and played their part. The bench played wonderfully. Klay and Iggy played outstanding this game! How many players can score 0 points in the first half and come back and score 33 in the second half and and close out a game!? This is what makes Steph so special.
