The Golden State Warriors have taken the controls of the series against the Houston Rockets. However, they lost Kevin Durant.
With their victory from 104 to 99 in the face of the Houston Rockets, the Warriors are just a victory of the qualification. Enjoying a great start to the match, the defending champions have been able to capitalize on it to win. The Splash Brothers were at level with 25 points (9 of 23), 6 rebounds, 5 assists (3 TOs) for Curry, and 27 points (11 of 20), 4 rebounds, 3 steals for Thompson ! We can also note that the performance of Draymond Green. The interior is in near triple-double with 8 points (3 of 8), 12 rebounds, 11 assists (4 TOs).
So far, the evening was not perfect for Golden State. During the third quarter, Kevin Durant has suffered a lesion to the calf. More fear than harm for the Warriors, who feared the worst and, in particular, an injury to the Achilles tendon. We now expect to know the duration of the absence of KD.
