Durant was diagnosed with a right calf strain after coming down on a jump shot in the third quarter of Game Five of the Warriors semifinal series with the Rockets. Golden State overcame his absence to not only win Game 5 to take a 3-2 series lead, but also went on the road and ripped out a Game Six win in Houston to clinch the series and advance to the Western Conference Finals.
