Kevin Durant 'Not Close' to Returning to Playoff Action

The good news for the Warriors is they now hold a 2-0 lead against the Trail Blazers.

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.

"That third quarter was unbelievable and it was a true testament of everyone on the team". While speaking to The Athletic's Sam Amick, Seth Curry of the Blazers spoke about the Durant-less Warriors and had some very interesting comments. "They outplayed us for the majority of the night, but we brought enough competitive fire in the second half to overcome their great play".

Klay Thompson added 24 points, Looney 14 and Jordan Bell 11 for Golden State, which outshot Portland 51.2 percent to 44.2 and outrebounded the visitors 50-37.

"I think we played a awful game and we still had a chance going into the fourth quarter, so we need to tighten some things up and look forward to the game on Thursday", Portland guard CJ McCollum said, per AP.

Before Durant's injury, he averaged 34.2 points while shooting 51.3% from the floor and 41.6 from 3-point range through 11 games this postseason.

"Steph got free and had a big night", Golden State head coach Steve Kerr said, according to ESPN.

The Trail Blazers are just 1-4 against the spread (ATS) in their last five games played on one day of rest.

The Trail Blazers had a final chance to tie the score trailing by three with about 10 seconds remaining.

The Warriors' Kevin Durant limps off the court during Game 5 versus the Houston Rockets. "But I tried to get a little bit of space the first time".

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. His 3-pointer with 5:31 to go gave Portland a seven-point lead and felt a little like a comeuppance.

These circumstances hang over the Golden State Warriors in particular at the moment. That means he wouldn't be expected to return until the NBA Finals if Golden State advances. He won't travel with the team for Games 3 and 4 of the conference finals in Portland, though he has "shown good progress" since beginning his rehab program.

While the brothers aren't each other's primary defenders, they are crossing paths.

Trail Blazers: Seth Curry stole the ball from big brother Steph in the second quarter. Of Seth Curry's four 3-pointers, two came while being defended by his brother, and another came when defended by his college teammate Quinn Cook.
