Durant scored 25 points on the night. He entered Sunday averaging 27.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.7 assists.
Golden State dropped to 45-21 in the loss, but still have the best record in the Western Conference.
Questions now surrounding Durant’s status couldn’t come at a worse time as the Warriors will have to face a piping hot Rockets team in Houston on Wednesday.
However, coach Steve Kerr expects Durant to be okay, reports from Oracle Arena said. Kerr noted he wasn’t sure if the 10-time All-Star will need an MRI.
