Warriors having fun without Durant, but they'll need him

  • Kevin Durant to miss Games 3 4 of Western Conference finals

The 6.0 rating is up 40 percent from the last time ESPN televised the Western Conference Finals - the 2017 series between the Warriors and the San Antonio Spurs.

Even though Durant won the NBA Finals MVP each of the past two seasons, the Warriors have 28 wins in their past 29 games when Durant was absent, but Stephen Curry played. "They played good defense, but I can live with the shots I missed every day of the week".

CJ McCollum missed a driving jumper with 32 seconds left and Green scored on the other end for the Warriors, giving Portland one final chance with 12.3 seconds to go.

Game three will be Saturday night, and we'll have to see how Golden State does without their best player on the court once again.

"Hopefully he continues to progress, and he has made progress but it's a little more serious than we thought at the very beginning", Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said, per ESPN.

Kevin Durant suffered his injury during the Western Conference semifinals series versus the Houston Rockets.

And it is reported the Sussexes' new household at Buckingham Palace is actually about having tighter control over the couple. Markle's mother, Doria has reportedly been helping the new mother with baby Archie instead.

"He's been the best player in the National Basketball Association in the playoffs", Kerr said. It has raised questions about Durant's true value and whether or not Golden State is a better, more risky team without him. It wasn't the first big defensive play Iguodala has made and it presumably won't be the last.

"We've been here before", said Green, who had 16 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 blocks in the win.

The Warriors, though, have an impeccable record without Durant this season, as long as Stephen Curry is on the floor. He covers up so much for us.

Andre Iguodala sealed Golden State's come-from-behind victory in Game 2 by stripping Damian Lillard as the Blazers guard went up for a potential game-tying shot in the final seconds. Certainly Curry gets more involved, I think Klay gets more involved, because they need to. "Hopefully he'll be back at some point, but we'll just wait and see".

The Trail Blazers will try desperately to tie this series during Game 2 tonight.

Lillard, who was scoreless for the game's first 20 minutes, finished the half with 10.
