Durant (MCL) back for first game since February 28

Durant was critical of his performance, and at times he was rusty, shooting 6-of-15 from the field and failing to knock down a three pointer in the contest.

Durant's injury nearly derailed that dream before the playoffs even arrived.

According to our predictions, in today's NBA action basketball game of Golden State vs New Orleans, Warriors will win the match.

This game kicked off with the Warriors going on a 9-3 run, but they got sluggish on offense early in the first quarter, allowing the Pelicans to come back and take the lead.

The most impressive number to take away from Durant's return is 31, the amount of minutes he played. Jrue Holiday contributed 10 points, 10 assists and six rebounds.

Let's flash back to a year ago when Warriors guard Stephen Curry sprained his knee.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr reiterated that Durant would play without a cap on his minutes. "So I just tried to focus on each day", Durant said.

"I just want to go out there full throttle and see what happens", he added. "And to get some stops and to get an assist, that felt great". A lot depends on how quickly they can get back in sync, but if and when they do, it's hard to imagine anyone beating them.

The fine print was in the BJP manifesto, where they said that the relief would only be for small and marginal farmers. Farmers will also reportedly get Rs 10 more than the minimum support price per quintal.

"I play basketball for a living", he said.

The "big picture" is a direct reference to the playoffs, which begin next weekend.

In the two weeks after Durant was hurt, the Warriors weren't exactly in a free-fall, but they did drop five of seven games and showed concerning signs as to how they could manage in his absence.

Golden State's co-leading scorer along with Curry at 23.5 points per game and the top rebounder, Durant was hurt February 28 at Washington when Marcin Gortat pushed Zaza Pachulia and Golden State's center fell into Durant, who has missed 19 games since with a Grade 2 MCL sprain and bruised tibia.

"At first we thought it was season ending", Kerr said.

"Hell no, absolutely not", Green said. "He's been working extremely hard". X-rays were negative, but it could sideline him until the postseason.

As relieved as Durant is to be rejoining his teammates for this endeavor, he may have been even more enthusiastic about some of the simple things he was forced to go without as he rested and rehabilitated.

"I felt good putting my jersey on, running out with the team, going through the layup line".
