Kerr confirms KD out remainder of Rockets series

Why we all need to root for the Houston Rockets to win Game 5

"When Kevin went out, Steph just went into a different mindset", Warriors Coach Steve Kerr said.

Steph Curry without Kevin Durant on the team averages almost 30 points per game to go with 7+ assists and 5+ rebounds.

The down side: LaForce reported that depending on the severity of the strain, there is a chance Durant's recovery could take 2-3 weeks. Warriors will look to Curry and Play to win them the games and with high usage for such good shooters, will come points. After he departed with the injury, the rest of Golden State's array of stars helped the Warriors close it out.

Golden State almost gave it away with an bad third quarter, when the Warriors managed just 15 points and committed six turnovers. I have to go back and look at the game. Green has already been averaging 42 D11 points per credit this series. For a team that has claimed it lost the 2018 series only due to the mistimed injury to Chris Paul, it was a ideal opportunity to strike and get a 3-2 series lead with a chance to close out the series in game 6 at Houston.

One of the biggest reasons for the Rockets' struggles offensively in the first quarter is the lack of typical production from reigning MVP James Harden in the opening period. "I take responsibility for it, both ends of the floor".

Houston will send this series back to Oakland for Game 7.

When it comes to pulling a rabbit out of the hat, nothing will top the Warriors' Thompson-led comeback in Game 6 over the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2016 Western Conference finals.

End violence, work towards peace: Trump to Palestinians
Vice President Mike Pence tweeted , "We strongly condemn the attacks in Gaza by Hamas terrorists". Then Israel will have to decide if it will be held hostage to Hamas or take more forceful action.

All five games have been won by the home team and the oddsmakers favor that happening again with the Rockets as seven-point favorites.

"Disappointed for him", Kerr said.

Strategy wise, the Rockets made the adjustment of the playoffs by inserting PJ Tucker as the small ball center in most Houston lineups, which does not allow the Warriors to seek out and attack Clint Capela on the defensive end.

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

The Warriors pulled it off without Durant, whose 35.4 playoff scoring average was best in the National Basketball Association coming into the game.

Warriors: Green's eight assists in the first were one off team record for a playoff quarter. The two-time Finals MVP will undergo an MRI on Thursday, and it's not yet known whether he will make the trip to Houston.
