Fourth ring guaranteed for the King. As if that weren't enough, (not like they had a chance anyway) Kyle Lowry out as well. Enough help yet?

MCL sprain, he will be back up and running by the playoffs most likely. He can miss the first two rounds as well without a problem for the team as worst case.

They need to keep that 1 seed and avoid OKC, definitely.

 

But, if they do, they should be fine until May, and Durant will be back.

Avoid OKC? Because without Durant the Warriors have to fear a one man team...

 

Westbrook is amazing but the warriors are still one hell of a team without Durant in. They might go on a tear without Durant, a lot of shots now open for Curry and Klay to be in top form for playoffs.

KD always gets injured when it matters most for him.

As long as KD comes back in full form for the playoffs they will be fine.

 

Cavs got scarier for sure. I'm not too high on Williams, but let's see how Bogut fits into all of this.

I have to think the Dubs are the favorites even without Durant. The Spurs are only team that can run with them.

Curry isn't last year's All time Curry. Warriors have a fragile defense and offense without Durant. They are gonna get wrecked in 2nd round.

Curry was just trying to integrate Durant into the offense. That's why he started playing better once Durant told him to go out and play without worrying about him. They will be fine. They probably just need Durant to beat the Spurs and Cavs.

 

The Thunder with angry Brodie could be a fun series to watch though.

Curry just shot 0/11 from 3 the other day (had 0/10 against us in early season too) Nothing to do with Durant, dude hasn't been himself ever since the injury or whatever last year in playoffs. He is working harder than ever to get his points. His efficiency is way low compared to last year. His PER plummeted all the way down to 23.8 from 31.5 last season. KD was still getting his, and he was leading the team in points, rebounds, blocked shots, efficiency and he was their 2nd best defender.

 

2nd round exit. Bye bye.

Curry will take over, trust me. If they lose in the second round you can quote me on this. But I think you're being foolish to assume that they can't win games without Durant.

From 1999-2010 it was 95% Lakers and Spurs.  We're not even into the 3rd year of the Warriors vs Cavs.  And of course the Spurs are still around.

Anyway, now Durant is projected to be out a minimum of 4 weeks and could be back as soon as early to mid April as opposed to May.

Looks like Bogut just broke his leg within 1 minute of playing.
