Golden State pulled out a 104-99 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) as the Warriors survived the loss of superstar Kevin Durant to grab a 3-2 lead in their second round National Basketball Association playoff series.
Durant was injured with two minutes left in the third quarter of Game 5 after an attempted jumpshot over Rockets guard Iman Shumpert and did not return to the game.
Stephen Curry leads the Warriors averaging 27.3 points and has added 5.4 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game.
Durant limped to the locker room after landing awkwardly on his right foot following a baseline jumper with 2:11 left in the third quarter Wednesday.
