Kevin Durant Will Miss The Next 2 Playoff Games For The Warriors

"Most of my texts are kind of motivational", she told ESPN after Stephen's Warriors bested Seth's Trail Blazers 114-111 to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series Thursday night. The telecast delivered a 6.0 metered market rating, peaking with a 6.9 rating from 11:15-11:30 p.m. ET.

The Warriors are firmly in control of the Western Conference finals. But this "texes" message was special, because her sons - Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors and Seth Curry of the Portland Trail Blazers - are the first brothers to play against each other in a conference finals.

The good news for the Warriors is they now hold a 2-0 lead against the Trail Blazers. A dominant CJ McCollum scored 37 points as the Blazers overcame a 17-point hole to upset the Denver Nuggets in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals.

"This was like the coolest experience I think I've ever had playing against him", Stephen Curry said.

Needing a 3-pointer to tie, Damian Lillard had the ball stripped by Andre Iguodala while elevating for a 28-foot attempt, sealing Golden State's win. It was reminiscent of those old third-quarter runs that have defined this group.

Since getting drafted by the Warriors, Green has continued to improve his game earning him three all-star selections, a Defensive Play of the Year Award during the 2016-2017 season and is a three-time NBA Champion.

Game three will be Saturday night, and we'll have to see how Golden State does without their best player on the court once again. We just basically had a three-game road trip, all tough games.

Before Durant's injury, he averaged 34.2 points while shooting 51.3% from the floor and 41.6 from 3-point range through 11 games this postseason.

Golden State doesn't want to waste any time or energy trying to get to the NBA Finals for the fifth straight season. "The situation calls for me to be a little bit more aggressive and hopefully that'll continue", Curry said, according to the Associated Press. Warriors standout Kevin Durant, who along with frontcourt sidekick DeMarcus Cousins missed the first two games, already has been ruled out of both Portland games because of a strained right calf.

Durant was re-evaluated Thursday and is not yet ready for on-court work - a necessary step before the two-time reigning NBA Finals MVP can return to game action.

Game 2 is set to begin shortly on ESPN.

Seth Curry countered that with his fourth 3-pointer, setting up the frantic finish.
