Now, Harden and the Rockets have yet another chance to get past the team that's turned them into an also-ran. We're in a great spot, we're up 3-2.
Entering Wednesday's action, Durant ranked sixth in the National Basketball Association playoffs in minutes played.
"It's obviously a huge loss".
"But our team has a lot of confidence". In the games that we won, they didn't get those opportunities. Houston is going to come out looking to take advantage of the Warriors in the same way the Warriors did last season when Chris Paul went down with a hamstring injury. "When I walked into the coach's office after the game, the replay of the play was going on".
Trade war: China-US talks to resume amid threat of new tariffs
Even the USA government has filed plans to raise tariffs about $200 billion worth of Chinese imports by 10% to 25 percent Friday. Investors have been anticipating a deal throughout this year, which contributed to double-digit gains in all the major indexes.
The Rockets historically come apart in the face of pressure.
James Harden scored 31 points for the Rockets, who will try to stave off elimination back home in Houston.
With Durant out for an indefinite amount of time, Curry acknowledged Wednesday that the Warriors would have to go back to how they played four years ago, before Golden State acquired its star forward. The Rockets were 7-of-44 from beyond the arc - including the much ridiculed 27 consecutive misses from deep.
The Houston Rockets need to win to avoid elimination. The Rockets shed the insult with back-to-back titles behind Hakeem Olajuwon in 1994 and 1995. They always said they believed they could win straight up, but their reliance on whistles at the series' outset told the true tale: To beat the Warriors, they needed some sort of assistance.
Secretary of State Pompeo warns the United Kingdom about Huawei and China
No final decision had been made on cooperation with Huawei on the UK's 5G and the government was still "considering the evidence". To that end, the US also objected to a joint declaration by the Council that included references to the Paris climate accord.
Green, who grabbed 12 rebounds and dished 11 assists in Game 5, will be tasked with holding down the glass, protecting Golden State's backside defence and orchestrating offensive possessions.
Additionally, the Rockets have to recall the task that comes from playing without a key contributor. At the end of day it's about winning or losing, trying to endure to the finish line.
Then, they heeded Steve Kerr's simple message: "Poise and awareness and poise and patience applies to all of life and not just offense", the coach said beforehand. "You know, it's the playoffs".
"It's the playoffs, it's the ultimate test". "We'll have to claw our way to one more win", Curry said.
Samsung introduces industry-first 64MP smartphone camera sensor
If these claims play out in practice, we could see a phone using the GW1 establish itself as the new dynamic range leader. Soon, the 48MP camera on the back of your handset won't be the highest resolution snapper found on a smartphone.
Even so, it's a simple question, no matter what level of talent you're starting with: Would you rather have Durant on the court or not?
