Warriors' Durant returns to practice

Warriors' Durant returns to practice

"He's doing more today", head coach Steve Kerr told reporters. "But again for myself or anybody in our rotation who's been playing a lot of minutes, we just have to be aggressive and smart and competitive, especially on the defensive end", said Curry. He has not been in game action in more than a month. In two games against Toronto, Durant averaged 40.5 points, nine rebounds and 5.5 blocks including a 51-point outing on the road.

It apparently didn't matter as the Raptors were able to beat the Warriors in both games.

VanVleet, whose partner gave birth to the couple's second child earlier in the playoffs, and his teammates have been doing nearly everything right in going up 3-1 in the best-of-seven series.

Durant was the leading scorer in the playoffs before suffering a leg injury in the second round.

If Durant can somehow play through the injury and even be a shell of his healthy self, this series is far from over. In the NBA Finals that year, they saw a 3-1 advantage disappear to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavs. "We still got plenty to play for ... today will will watch the film and go through practice and talk about the things we can clean up ..."

After splitting the first two games in Toronto, no-one gave the Raptors much chance of winning both games at Oracle Arena but behind Kawhi Leonard's otherworldly play and key contributions from Pascal Siakam, Serge Ibaka, Marc Gasol and Kyle Lowry, the Eastern Conference champs have become a frightening opponent. "We followed the [concussion] protocol, and we made sure that we're in a right state of mind before we go out there. We have a better sense of what we can do".

Kevin Durant is officially listed as questionable heading into Game 5 at Scotiabank Arena against the Toronto Raptors, according to Logan Murdock of NBC Sports Bay Area.

In Game 3 of this series, Klay Thompson, nursing a hamstring injury, was dressed and available for the Warriors but never ended up seeing the floor. I was at 80 percent the other night. "I was more upset about the team than the eye". "I'll be inching close to 90, closer to 100 by tomorrow".
