Durant not playing in Game 5 would 'shock' Jay Williams

Durant not playing in Game 5 would 'shock' Jay Williams”

If the Warriors can pull off the upset in Game 5, then win Game 6 on Thursday night in Oakland, they'll have a chance to win the NBA Finals in Game 7 next Sunday in Toronto.

The Raptors lead the series 3-1 with a chance to claim their first National Basketball Association championship on Monday night.

Durant spent about 25 minutes on the court before leaving toward the end of the Warriors' shootaround session for continued treatment.

"You worry about the conditioning. the skill obviously is undeniable and he's a guy who can get his shot off any time he wants", Kerr said.

This past Sunday, Durant was practicing with the team, with Steve Kerr saying "He looked good, we'll see where it goes". Klay Thompson returned from injury after sitting out Game 3, but even his team-high 28 points weren't enough to overcome the Raptors' second-half surge.

The Golden State Warriors are hopeful that All Star Kevin Durant will play the do-or-die game five of the National Basketball Association finals series after training with team. If we had a crystal ball, we would have known a long time ago what we were dealing with.

With Durant set to return for Game 5, one has to wonder about the level of rust that he will be dealing with after being sidelined for over a month.

Durant was the NBA Finals MVP when Golden State captured titles in 2017 and 2018.

He added that the moment is expected to be interspersed with live footage from the Jurassic Park fan zone outside the arena before the Raptors face the Golden State Warriors.
