Durant officially listed as questionable for Game 5

OAKLAND CALIFORNIA- JUNE 07 Stephen Curry #30 of the Golden State Warriors is defended by Kawhi Leonard #2 of the Toronto Raptors in the second half during Game Four of the 2019 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena

"If you haven't got your eye cut up or got hit in the mouth a couple times playing basketball then you might be playing it the wrong way". No one person in the NBA Finals wields quite as much influence over the outcome of the series, as the "Easy Money Sniper".

Durant has been out since May 10th with a calf injury - Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals.

In the wake of getting his head cut open and a tooth chipped following an inadvertent elbow from Golden State Warriors guard Shaun Livingston in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, VanVleet made multiple medical visits to make sure everything was OK, and that he'd be ready to go for Game 5 here at Scotiabank Arena on Monday night. The writer chose the word "angst" to elucidate the brittle confidence around the time going into a decisive Game 5.

On Sunday afternoon, Yahoo NBA Reporter Chris Haynes reported that Kevin Durant will be cleared to practice today. "We'll know more after that".

The Raptors will need more of VanVleet's contributions at both ends to close this out and deliver this city its first championship since the Toronto Blue Jays won their second straight World Series in 1993.

Pelosi suggests a Trump 'intervention' is needed amid war of words
Trump also labeled the investigations as phony and said Democrats can either go down the "investigation" or "investment" track. Barr has refused to honor a committee subpoena to produce an un-redacted copy of the Mueller report and testify about it.

"We all accept the challenge and can hopefully go out there and take care of business".

"That's what I did from that point on, bet on myself and trust that I really felt what I was doing and really believed in it". So it would be pretty storybook if he could come back and help us do the same. You just got to play through them - not play through them, but manage the injury.

"It's just having another powerful weapon out there that can do some very dynamic things on the floor", Curry said.

Durant averaged 26 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game with the Warriors this season. "He's one of the best competitors I've ever been around".
