KD Leaves Game 5 with RIght-Calf Strain, Set to Undergo MRI

KD Leaves Game 5 with RIght-Calf Strain, Set to Undergo MRI

The Warriors ended up persevering through Kevin Durant's injury and won 104-99 to take a 3-2 lead in the series, the exact situation the Rockets were in against the Warriors in the Western Conference finals a year ago. Golden State found themselves in another thriller with Houston but the defending champs are holding their collective breaths as they await KD's impending MRI set for Thursday. During the third quarter, Durant went for a jump shot and when he landed, he looked back down at his ankle, all while hobbling along in considerable pain.

Durant had 22 points when he left the game and had an immediate impact on the game. When Kevin Durant limped to the locker room tunnel, followed by general manager Bob Myers, the game, the season, Durant's career and immediate future were suddenly all in variance. "And we'll see how Kevin's doing tomorrow", said Steve Kerr following the game.

Now, Harden and the Rockets have yet another chance to get past the team that's turned them into an also-ran.

But the Rockets wasted an opportunity in Game 5.

"Avengers: Endgame" apparently didn't end soon enough for Golden State Warriors sharpshooter Klay Thompson, who reportedly walked out of the Marvel blockbuster an hour early.

"He's not going to play Game 6". "Tough loss. We had opportunities", Houston's Chris Paul said.

"I mean, [Harden] does whatever we need to be done", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said. We got to rebound. "But we got to be better offensively [and] defensively, especially myself".
