Warriors: Durant didn't make the trip to Houston, remaining in the Bay Area to receive treatment for his injury. So, we desperately need him if we wanna win a championship, but we can win one game without him. Curry, who was criticised after shooting 7 for 23 in Game 3, got off to a good start, scoring 11 points in the first quarter.

Alisson was also back into his work as Suarez sprung the Reds' offside trap - a stop that looked even more vital when Wijnaldum drove Alexander-Arnold's next delivery from open play through Ter Stegen's grasp.
