Steve Kerr has yet to rule out Kevin Durant for game 5 of the NBA Finals, saying that Durant has made progress on his injured calf.
Durant was cleared to practice on Sunday. "What he's doing today he hasn't done (before)," said Kerr. Kerr added that they will watch Durant practice and "gauge it from there" in determining his availability for game 5.
Steph Curry added that the Warriors would adjust quickly if Durant were to make his return. "We'll be able to adjust in transition pretty smoothly. He's been in plenty of Finals and has played well. No matter what percentage he's at, I'm sure he'll be impactful and effective out there. "
But again for myself or anybody in our rotation who's been playing a lot of minutes, we just have to be aggressive and smart and competitive, especially on the defensive end," said Curry.
Draymond Green gave an impassioned speech in the locker roomafter the Golden State Warriors' loss in Game 4 of The Finals to the Toronto Raptors.
"Draymond gave a great speech," Looney told Sam Amick of The Athletic. "He made sure we had our heads up, said 'Stay confident, know who we are. We didn't get here by quitting and pouting or giving up. We always believe, and we've got a bunch of guys who have been underdogs and who have been counted out before.' I think we're going to embrace this challenge more."
鲁尼告诉竞技报的Sam Amick：“追梦说得很棒。他让我们抬起头，他说'要相信自己，知道我们是谁。我们打到总决赛靠的不是气馁、沮丧、无奈或放弃。我们始终坚信，我们这群人，又不是没输过比赛，又不是以前没被淘汰过。' 我想我们会更加直面困难，接受这个挑战。”
Everybody probably thinks we're going to lose now. And being the underdog again, like we haven't been in a long time, it's fun. We'll try to go out there and prove everybody wrong.
"This is a tough challenge. Steve (Kerr) always says, 'There's a reason we pour champagne on each other when we win a title. It's hard. It's not going to be easy. Nothing in the NBA is easy.' Toronto is a great team. They're hungry, but we're capable of winning. We feel like we have the better team. We've just got to go out there and show it."
