Steve Kerr: Kevin Durant won't play in Game 6 vs. Rockets

"A night like tonight doesn't happen without belief in myself", Curry said.

Milwaukee advance to the Eastern Conference finals, where they are to have home-court advantage over the victor of the other East second-round series between the Toronto Raptors and the Philadelphia 76ers.

Kerr said he hadn't spoken to Durant since late Wednesday night, but the feeling of relief from within the Warriors organization is palpable. "We're thrilled to be moving on and excited to have this one in our review mirror". Stephen Curry had 30 and Draymond Green added 15. Harden made one of two free throws with 11.5 seconds left.

"We let a lot of opportunities slip away; opportunities in the last game, opportunities in Games 1 and 2".

Curry on what people have been saying about him since he struggled in Game 3: 'The last 48 hours have been pretty amusing, hearing all the noise and chatter about how I've been playing in this series, and I take it all in stride and understand what I'm capable of.

Thompson dropped 27 points, shooting 7-of-13 from 3-point land.

Golden State coach Steve Kerr was asked about the physical play of the Rockets, who have several players who are much stockier than his squad. This is not just something you get over. Obviously, the Warriors' training staff will work around the clock to ensure Durant - who has been the best player in the world this postseason - is ready to go should Houston extend the series. It was like a heavyweight fight. Beyond Durant the other four Golden State defenders that have taken their turn guarding Harden have all graded as less-than defensively. "Eventually it'll break through, it'll get back to how I expect to shoot the ball". But they didn't seem to miss a beat, getting 21 from Thompson in the first half before Curry closed it in the fourth.

"It's one of those things that until they actually lose, no one believes they're actually going to lose", Berg said.

Golden State's chances of keeping Thompson may be helped by more than just financials, too.

A 3-pointer by Curry gave the Warriors a five-point lead before Harden ended a scoring drought by the Rockets of nearly four minutes with a 3-pointer to cut the lead to 102-100 with about 2 1/2 remaining.

The Golden State Warriors managed to lead by as many as 20 points in Game 5. The Warriors were expected to have a film session upon arrival in Houston, and Kerr liked the way his team was feeling. The Warriors said he'll be re-evaluated next week. The Celtics had reached the National Basketball Association semi-finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers each of the last two seasons. Houston averages 42.1 rebounds per game and is 25-2 when winning the rebound battle.

Steph slowly began catching rhythm in the third quarter, scoring 10 points.
