Stephen Curry Leads Warriors Past Rockets in Game 5 

  • The Golden State Warriors survived a Kevin Durant calf injury and are one win away from their fifth consecutive Western Conference Finals appearance following Wednesday's 104-99 victory in Game 5 of their second-round clash with the Houston Rockets. Golden State has won all three games at Oracle Arena in the series, allowing it to take a 3-2 lead even though it dropped both road contests. The result took a backseat when Durant limped off the court following a non-contact injury in the third quarter. He didn't return with what the Warriors announced was a right calf strain, putting Klay Thompson (27 points, four rebounds and three steals), Stephen Curry (25 points, six rebounds and five assists) and Draymond Green (eight points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists) in position to carry the team to victory. The Warriors built a 31-17 lead while Curry was 0-for-3 from the field with zero points, but he was far more assertive after Durant exited. 
  • Curry's struggles have been a constant theme in this series as he misses layups, a dunk and more threes than usual. He shot only 26.1 percent from deep in the first four games and was a mere 3-of-11 in Wednesday's contest.
