Warriors provide an update on Kevin Durant's knee injury

He had his four-week re-evaluation following knee injury, his Warriors had an important game against the San Antonio Spurs and he had a lengthy interview to ESPN.

The Warriors - who could ultimately end up facing San Antonio for a place in the National Basketball Association finals when the playoffs get under way - looked to be in deep trouble as the Spurs raced into a 29-7 first quarter lead. Still, it was likely considered a good possession for the Spurs, as they avoided giving up a almost automatic three to Curry. The Spurs are only two games back in the loss column. Golden State, on the other hand, received just 16 trips (12-16) to the foul line. During the game, the Warriors had 31 assists on 43 made field goals.

Everyone was quick to write off the Warriors after their abysmal start Wednesday night.

With Draymond Green missing a majority of the second half with a tweaked ankle, the Rockets went on a little run.

By the time the fourth quarter rolled around, it was Thompson's turn. His presence in the lineup doesn't only make the Warriors better, it makes them downright scary. But, there are no injured players are there in San Antonio Spurs. The Warriors outscored the Spurs 93-65 through the last three quarters, and in doing so sent a nationally-televised statement to the rest of the league. Then they won the game 110-108. Houston's four-game winning streak ended on a night when the Rockets made just 5 of 31 3-pointers. Golden State is ranked #11 in points allowed per game. Despite the ease with which his team handled the Cavaliers, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich refused to say that playing as well as it did against one of the NBA's best teams was a measuring stick.

Durant, the 2014 NBA Most Valuable Player, is averaging 25.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.6 blocked shots and 1.1 steals a game in 59 appearances this season. Of course, the pace of their games is slower which means there are fewer opportunities for their opponents to score.

Going into their final regular-season meeting Wednesday night, the Spurs have nine games left on their schedule and Golden State has eight remaining. The Warriors are 34-38 at the betting window on the season and 17-21 against the spread on the road this year. With the playoffs nearly near, this game will have a huge impact on determining the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference.

However, Golden State has a knack for rising up in spots like this. The signing is worth noting for Wizards fans, given the Pacers could match up with them in the first round of the playoffs. The Warriors took on their two biggest competitors in the Western Conference on national television, in their home courts, and without Kevin Durant. "An NBA game is such a long process, and you have to stay with it, and obviously, we've got a lot of firepower".
