Warriors rally from 15 down at halftime, hold off Trail Blazers

NBA Conference Semifinals: Philadelphia 76ers vs Toronto Raptors (Game 7)

Golden State Warriors superstar small forward Kevin Durant will reportedly likely miss the entire Western Conference Finals against the Portland Trail Blazers, according to Monte Poole of NBC Sports Bay Area. The telecast delivered a 6.0 metered market rating, peaking with a 6.9 rating from 11:15-11:30 p.m. ET.

That means that, unless the Warriors medical staff changes its assessment, Durant will miss Games 3, 4, and 5. 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. Lillard, who ended the night with 23 points, failed to register a bucket in the final 7 minutes and 42 seconds of the game. He continued his strong play in the final frame, leading the Blazers in scoring in the fourth with nine points on a ideal 3-of-3 from behind the arc. The Warriors seem to be embracing being doubted without Durant and I think that is driving them a lot right now. Starters Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum have carried a ton of the scoring load throughout the postseason, but Golden State has done a nice job against the duo.

He sat out last year with a stress fracture in his lower left leg and signed with the Trail Blazers on a one-year deal over the summer. He played just 14 minutes and certainly made the most of his time on the floor with 11 points, three rebounds, two steals, an assist and a block. "It was a much better game than we played in Game 1".

Warriors star Kevin Durant is "not close" to recovering from his right calf strain, ESPN reported Thursday. The game was tied at 89 to start the fourth.

Curry scored Golden State's first eight points of the third to get his team back within 69-58 then Thompson hit two straight 3s.

It appears that the Golden State Warriors are monitoring the situation and plan to re-evaluate Durant in a week.

Over the past two-plus games - all of which they've won - the Warriors have played a more fluid brand of basketball built around the strengths of Curry, like the Warriors teams to precede Durant.

"I had to catch myself a couple of times because I do want to go over and have a little small talk or whatever, but you've got to stay locked in".

Lillard isn't ready to ponder this might have been his final game at Oracle Arena, just a short walk from where he grew up in Oakland.

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.
