Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr quotes Jurgen Klopp after win

"We just have to win one game so let's do it".

Before leaving the game with what would be diagnosed as a right calf strain, Kevin Durant put up 22 points on 8-of-18 shooting.

Golden State and Houston take the court for Game 6 at 9 p.m. on Friday at Toyota Center in Houston. The injury kept him out of the rest of Game 5, and according to Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, Durant won't see any action in Game 6, either.

"He's disappointed", Kerr said at his press conference of Durant.

Antetokounmpo, who was averaging 27 points in the playoffs, settled for 20 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in the game five clincher.

The Giannis Antetokounmpo-led Bucks booked a place in the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 2001 with a 116-91 thrashing of the Celtics in Milwaukee on Wednesday.

"We're in a great spot, we're up 3-2, we've got championship rings on our fingers and a lot of experience that comes from that", Kerr added.

Bogut, the Warriors' veteran Australian centre, did not play for the second straight game. The slimmest of silver linings is that the injury wasn't his Achilles, but a calf strain. "So let's go out there and let it rip".

Boston shot a season-low 31 per cent from the field and 18 per cent behind the three-point line in the loss, compared to the Bucks' 45 and 32 per cent. "We can all pretend and just say he's doubtful". Worst case: the Warriors miss his scoring too much and fall to the Rockets the same way the Rockets lost the Western Conference Finals past year: an injury to one of the team's best players.
