Bucks KO Celtics; Warriors' Durant injured

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (30) celebrates with guard Klay Thompson (11) against the Houston Rockets during the fourth quarter in game five of the second round of the 2019 NBA Playoffs at Oracle Arena.

After Game 6, Curry said that Durant had carried the team all postseason, and it's this kind of credit deference is what landed Durant on the team in the first place. He was in the midst of another strong night in Game 5, scoring 22 points in 32 minutes of action.

Once Durant limped off with a right calf strain, something clicked.

The Bucks won the final four games of the series by an average of 16.3 points, sealing a 4-1 triumph as Milwaukee await the victor of the Toronto Raptors-Philadelphia 76ers matchup. According to ESPN Stats & Info, the Warriors have been outscored by 14 points with Durant on the bench in these playoffs.

In fact, Cowherd believes that the Houston Rockets may be in MORE trouble despite the fact that Kevin Durant went down with an injury that could keep him out of the series.

James Harden once again did not play his best basketball in an elimination game, and he compounded things with an inexcusable turnover in crunch time. "We just have to win one game so let's do it".

While TNT's Allie LaForce initially reported that Durant will undergo an MRI on Thursday, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has already made his decision on Thursday regarding Durant's playing status for Game 6 on Friday night - he won't play, via Tim Kawakami of The Athletic.

"Like yeah, we're used to winning, but this one felt wonderful", Draymond Green said during his postgame press conference. "If we're able to win the series and move on, looks good for his return in the not-too-distant future".

"It was such a weird game because we played so well in that second quarter". They did so easily, beating the Boston Celtics in five games after a first-round sweep of the Detroit Pistons. Gordon, who had a play-off career-high 30 points in Game 3, scored 20 points or more in consecutive play-off games for the first time in his career.
