Durant calf strain more serious than first thought - Kerr

With the first two games of the NBA's Western Conference finals between the Golden State Warriors and Portland Trail Blazers having been held in Oakland, California, it meant that former Weber State star Damian Lillard returned to his hometown as the Blazers' leader. For my parents, I know we've talked about it the whole series and these last two games, it's probably nerve wracking as heck for them, but it worked out perfectly tonight, he played well and we won. "They're definitely not a better team, but they're harder to guard". But, obviously, the ref is not going to decide the game or jump in at that point.

Game three will be Saturday night, and we'll have to see how Golden State does without their best player on the court once again.

"He has made progress, but it's a little more serious than we thought at the very beginning", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Thursday night.

He was understandably pumped up after making the play, sprinting back to his locker room as soon as the final buzzer sounded and basking in the moment. Lillard, however, refused to blame the officials for not calling it a foul and eventually admitted it was good defensive play. Green has consistently been able to defend 1-5.

Durant is averaging 34.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.9 assists in the postseason after averaging 26, 6.4 and 5.9, respectively, during the regular season.

With Durant, Curry and Thompson still symbolized the Warriors offense that featured a steady dose of ball movement and 3s.

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

Klay Thompson added 24 points, Looney 14 and Jordan Bell 11 for Golden State, which outshot Portland 51.2 percent to 44.2 and outrebounded the visitors 50-37. "We can't wait to have him back".

"This was like the coolest experience I think I've ever had playing against him", Stephen Curry said.

His contributions were vital to a team that fought to come back and seal a win at home, putting the Blazers at a 2-0 deficit ahead of the road swing of this series.
