"The odds are against us, no-one's giving us much of a chance because NBA history says this [coming back from 3-1 down] doesn't happen very often - it actually happened to us three or four years ago - so we think we can still salvage the series, but we kind of have to play three flawless games to beat these guys who are playing really good basketball", he said. They've struggled offensively to crack the code of Toronto's defense, and haven't been able to contain Kawhi Leonard and company on the other end, leading to a 3-1 deficit going back to Toronto.
If Durant can somehow play through the injury and even be a shell of his healthy self, this series is far from over.
Durant went through practice, but not for long. "We'll know more after that". Golden State's rhythm and confidence have been hampered by injuries, with Klay Thompson, DeMarcus Cousins, Kevon Looney and Andre Iguodala playing through various ailments.
To combat these closures, the TTC will have extra services in place to help commuters and fans get in and out of the downtown Toronto core.

OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA - MAY 08: Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors warms up before Game Five of the Western Conference Semifinals of the 2019 NBA Playoffs at ORACLE Arena on May 08, 2019 in Oakland, California.
Durant's status for Game 5 has been officially upgraded to "questionable", meaning he could make his first return on Monday. Without him, I wouldn't bet a penny on the Warriors to win this series. "If that's win a game and be patient, then we got to go do that". "He's one of the best competitors I've ever been around".
And for the moment, what the Warriors are trying to do is stay alive one game at a time.
The 25-year-old has averaged 12.8 points, three assists and 1.5 steals off the bench. "I was more upset about the team than the eye". "It's just having another powerful weapon out there that can do some very dynamic things on the floor". "He's been in plenty of Finals and has played well". The series price was down to Toronto -575 as of Sunday at Caesars Sportsbook.
