Kevin Durant Cleared for Sunday Practice Questionable for Game 5

in NBA

It has been a long wait for all the fans since Kevin Durant was injured against the 2nd round of the playoffs vs the Houston Rockets.

A strained calf injury believed to heal in a few days has lasted a month and the Warriors are deeply missing him and trying to climb out of a 1-3 NBA Finals deficit.

It is now reported that Kevin Durant has been cleared for practice and joined the team on Sunday 6/9/2019 in the hopes that he can play in Game 5 of the NBA Finals 2019.

Steve Kerr has this to say on Kevin Durant practice:

“Yeah, He’s doing more today, and we’ll know more after that.”

Kerr response if Kevin is going to play on Game 5:

“It’s feasible. But again, it’s really a day-to-day thing. If we had a crystal ball, we would have known a long time ago what we were dealing with. It’s just an injury; there’s been a lot of gray area. So literally it’s just day to day and how the progress is coming.”

Kevin Durant is officially listed as questionable for Game 5 but we will know his status later today.

Stephen Curry Delivered NBA Finals MVP Numbers Not Enough in Game 3

Stephen Curry was brilliant from the opening buzzer until the remaining minutes of the 4th quarter as he delivered NBA Finals MVP numbers with 47 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists, and 2 steals.

His monstrous effort however was not enough to win against the Toronto Raptors in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. Curry was playing with a depleted lineup as Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Kevin Looney are all injured and didn’t play. He had little help from his team as only Green and Iguodala scored in double figures 17 and 11 respectively.

Curry did everything he can making plays, hitting the big shot, hustling and diving for loseballs but Green’s intensity was not there, the perimeter defense to stop the outside shooting of the Raptors did not rotate fast enough.

On a positive note, the Warriors was always in striking distance of only trailing between 7 and 13 points throughout the game.

Even if KD, KT and KL comeback and the Warrios win the title, Curry winning Game 2 for the Warrios and tonight’s performance is enough for him to win the NBA Finals MVP award.

Steve Kerr Positive in NBA Finals 2019 Despite Kevin Durant Injury

in NBA

After losing Game 1 of the 2019 NBA Finals, Steve Kerr was asked about Kevin Durant and his reply says they got enough,

“It doesn’t matter until he’s out there, So if he’s out there, he’s pretty good, but if he’s not out there we play with the guys we have and we have got enough. We have won the last, whatever, six games without him, fixe, six games. So we have enough, but you play with the guys who are helathy and you go. so we’ll see what happens.”

For everyone who is against the Golden State Warriors they would hint that Steve Kerr is sending a message that Kevin Durant is not needed.

However we know that is not the case, Steve Kerr

would have the same answer regardless who is injured as he doesn’t want to give the other team a lot of confidence and he would want to send a message of positivity to his team, fans and his opponent.

Let us not blow this out of proportion, Kevin Durant is a Warrior and he will back in rotation having the same importance as everyone in the organization.
