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

Damian Lillard: 'There Was a Lot of Contact' On Final 3-Point Try

Durant, who suffered a strained right calf in Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinals series against the Houston Rockets last week, is "not close" to being ready to return, according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

The Bucks or the Raptors await them in the finals, and that's only if the Warriors can get two more wins against the Trail Blazers. "Obviously it's nice to see the ball go in".

The Portland Trail Blazers guard and brother to Stephen Curry was speaking to The Athletic's Sam Amick and he seemed to take a massive shot at the absence of Kevin Durant and how the Warriors play better without him.

Maybe the most impressive aspect of the Warriors' road success under Kerr: In the 18 total playoff series Golden State has played in since 2014-15, the Warriors have won and covered at least one road game in every series.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr elaborated on the report after Golden State's wild Game 2 win, saying that the injury is worse than initially thought.

McCollum scored 22 points for Portland and Lillard overcame a slow start to add 23 points and 10 assists as the Blazers looked far more in sync than in a 116-94 defeat two days earlier. The Trail Blazers looked tired, which was expected after they went toe-to-toe with the Denver Nuggets for seven games and then had just one day off. Lillard, however, refused to blame the officials for not calling it a foul and eventually admitted it was good defensive play.

Klay Thompson (nine), Draymond Green (eight) and Kevon Looney (seven) have helped Curry by combining to score 24 points for the Warriors, who finish the half shooting just 3-for-13 from beyond the arc. "So we've got to take that into Game 3". "Hopefully he'll be back at some point".

"I think they are harder to guard (without Durant)", Curry said.

Game 2 between the Warriors and Trail Blazers will tip off Thursday at 9 p.m. ET at Oracle Arena. "Whoever is on the floor, we know how to get that done".

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