When Durant went down, the Rockets had a golden opportunity to put them away at Oracle Arena. He then walked gingerly to the Warriors bench before heading straight to the locker room.
"I don't think there's going to be many people looking to bet the Warriors in this game, so might as well tax it on the higher side of Houston", Jeff Sherman, Las Vegas SuperBook vice president of risk, told ESPN. Golden State would host a potential Game 7 on Sunday; the Warriors lead the series, 3 games to 2. He logged 50 minutes during a Game 3 overtime loss to Houston, the most minutes he had played in a playoff game since 2014. So, we desperately need him if we wanna win a championship, but we can win one game without him.
After they had won, celebrated a little and then wearily walked back into the locker room, the Warriors saw Durant and heard the relatively good news - it wasn't an Achilles tear, but he was out indefinitely and nearly certainly out for the next few games.

"Whoever has the ball, no matter if it's off a pick-and-roll, we swing, make the defense work, make decisions on that end of the floor", Curry said.
"At the end of the day, everything that we do starts with our defense". He's responded well. Obviously, we're disappointed he won't be able to play in this series. "We'll tap into that for however long he's out". Additionally, the Warriors are now +140 to win the title, compared to -110 prior to their Game 5 victory.
However, after he left Wednesday night's game, star point guard Steph Curry looked like his old self again.
"Hopefully", Kerr said, "we get Kevin back at some point". But got it done today. After the match, their manager, Jurgen Klopp, said, 'The young kids in Liverpool are probably asleep by now, so I'm just gonna go ahead and say it, but our boys are f--ing giants.' That's what he said, and I know how he feels.
