Durant unlikely to play Game 6

Steve Kerr believes Klay Thompson wants to remain with Warriors after season

Steve Kerr believes Klay Thompson wants to remain with Warriors after season

Kevin Durant's right calf strain has unsurprisingly caused a drastic shift in the National Basketball Association playoffs betting market and could produce a different championship favorite for the first time all season.

Curry had 25 points, with 16 coming after Durant's injury. He rose and appeared to step on the foot of Houston's Iman Shumpert, then grabbed his lower leg before departing with trainers to the locker room.

The shooting guard will be an unrestricted free agent after this season but much of the season-long focus has revolved around team-mate Kevin Durant, who also is a free agent. He will be re-evaluated next week.

The Warriors won 104-99 on Wednesday in Oakland to go up 3-2 and can eliminate the Rockets with a win in game six in Houston on Friday. Got championship rings on our fingers.

China threatens to hit back as USA imposes sweeping tariffs
Asian stocks were down overnight, with Japan's Nikkei 225 retreating almost 1 percent and Hong Kong's Hang Seng down 2.4 percent. Since July a year ago , China has cumulatively imposed counter-tariffs of up to 25 percent on about $110 billion of USA products.

Kerr said he had a pretty good idea of how he wanted to set up his rotations without Durant in the fold, but he wouldn't reveal that until closer to Friday night's game time. "To have rings on your fingers". This group has nothing to prove.

"It's one of those things that until they actually lose, no one believes they're actually going to lose", Berg said. This is probably the hardest we've been hit with DeMarcus (Cousins) and Kevin. The challenge is here, right there in front of our guys. With everything else we've heard thus far, we just have to wait and see what he decides to do. Here are three ways the series will be impacted by this injury. If he does decide to bolt, the Warriors still have the original core intact and are still one of the best teams in the National Basketball Association.

"A lot of it is factored into this spot in Game 6 where obviously Houston's backs are against the wall". He'll also have many more opportunities to get into rhythm.
