  Kerr believes Durant will return before end of season The signs are positive with regard to Kevin Durant’s health. Durant participated in a 5-on-5 session Saturday and came through it with no apparent problems, and Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr was clear in his belief that his star forward would be back ahead of the playoffs. “Yes,” Kerr said when asked if he thought Durant would be back before season’s end, via CSN Bay Area’s Monte Poole.Kerr did tap the brakes a bit, noting that Golden State had no intention of rushing Durant back into action.“We’re getting closer, but we’re not there yet,” he added.

“It was really fun for me to watch,” Kerr later said with a smile.

It was a sentiment much of a capacity Oracle Arena crowd could echo after the Warriors’ 109-94 rout Wednesday night of the Lakers. In a regular-season finale that felt more like a glorified scrimmage, Durant and Curry reinforced how daunting of a matchup Golden State is when the two All-Stars are in sync with each other.

BOX SCORE:  WARRIORS 109, LAKERS 94

Durant showed no lingering signs of the left knee injury that recently sidelined him five-plus weeks as he mixed dunks in with three-pointers and pinpoint passes. In just his third game back in the lineup, he poured in a game-high 29 points with eight rebounds and five assists. His jump shot, the only part of his game that lagged in his previous two outings, was at its textbook best.

  Draymond Green rips Drake, Curry and KD for their fashion sense in hilarious video Beware of going out with Draymond Green: There's an even-money chance you'll end up being mocked on his Snapchat. Toronto rapper/Warriors hanger-on Drake was the subject of much mockery on Saturday night while the team enjoyed a postgame meal with him. Dressed in blue athletic pants and a white satin bomber jacket, Drake was quickly singled out by Green for his outfit selection."What the (expletive) type of pants are these?!" Green asks, panning over Drake's legs. He's particularly offended by Drake's decision to slightly flood the pants, showing off white socks.

He shot 11-for-16 from the field, including 5-for-7 from beyond the arc, in 27 minutes. It was a far cry from his last two games in which he went a combined 0-for-9 from three-point range. Even with Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala resting, Curry could focus on facilitating. He dished out eight assists, a good chunk of which went to Durant, as he weathered an off-shooting night to chip in 20 points.

Late in the third quarter, after a Shaun Livingston steal, Curry found Durant driving toward the rim for a dunk. Moments later, Durant robbed Brandon Ingram, darted up court and hit Curry for the layup to push the Warriors’ lead to 91-68.

Durant didn’t return to the game after taking his seat during the Lakers’ ensuing timeout. Little more than a minute later, Curry joined him toward the end of Golden State’s bench. Kerr had seen all he needed from his two best players in a no-stakes game.

It was another feel-good development for a team peaking at the right time. While Durant was sidelined by that knee injury, Curry and Klay Thompson powered the Warriors to 13 consecutive wins. The question of how quickly Durant could re-acclimate was alleviated when he returned to record back-to-back double-doubles.

After Monday’s loss to Utah, he called finding a groove with his shot “the last piece of the puzzle.” It took Durant less than three minutes Wednesday to net three three-pointers. Midway through the third quarter, he took a feed from Curry and drilled his fifth three-pointer of the night. It was just the fourth time as a Warrior he has connected that many times beyond the arc.

Entering Game 1 of the first round Sunday against Portland, Golden State has won 15 of its past 16 games. And many of those wins were without Durant. As the Warriors eye another championship pursuit, Kerr might wonder: Should Durant and Curry make shooting competitions a part of their post-practice routine?
