ESPN's Second Highest Rated NBA Western Conference Finals Game 2 Ever

Kawakami Steve Kerr’s Portland reset — with Houston in the rearview mirror the Warriors are free to get quirky again

Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant is not yet ready to resume on-court work and will be re-evaluated in a week, the team announced Thursday, shortly before Game 2 of the Western Conference finals against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Iguodala aggressively pursued Lillard during the final possession, giving him little room to breathe. There was a lot of contact. Minutes before tip-off, Warriors General Manager Bob Myers confirmed that report, saying on television that KD will not be traveling with the team to Portland for Games 3 and 4.

"I tried to jinx him a little bit. He got his hand on the ball". "That's my perspective no matter how I play".

Warriors: The Warriors are 31-4 in the post-season when Curry scores 30 or more points.

Draymond Green wants to shut down discussion that the Warriors are playing better without injured Kevin Durant. Falling late in Game 5 versus the Houston Rockets, the Dubs managed to win three consecutive games without their leading scorer.

England manager Gareth Southgate plays down significance of Nations League glory
Midfielders Ross Barkley , Dele Alli, Fabian Delph , Eric Dier, Jordan Henderson , Declan Rice, James Ward-Prowse, Harry Winks. Speaking at a press conference, the England manager said: "I think he finished the season really well".

Curry scored 36 points and hit nine 3-pointers in Golden State's Game 1 win over the Trail Blazers. Green also had a brilliant all-around game for Golden State, contributing 16 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists and five blocks in the win. Just got to keep going, because we know we can erase eight points in a minute.

What makes this scenario even more unusual is the fact that Golden State hasn't struggled a bit without Durant in the lineup.

But the Warriors used their championship experience to tie the game and stifle the Trail Blazers' offense. I didn't shoot the ball well for 4 1/2 games the last series and got off to a good start tonight. MJ's crew was on average a 3-point favorite on the road, and they went just 14-11 ATS in their title runs.

But right down the line, from Kerr to the team's veterans, all have been measured in making sure they acknowledge Durant's greatness and value even as they play well without him.

Andre Iguodala agreed with Green, saying: "We've gotta play really well, damn near perfect" without Durant.
