Kevin Durant used to be back in The Bay because the Warriors clinched the series in opposition to the Rockets.

The Golden Recount Warriors are headed to their fifth straight Western Convention finals after knocking out the Houston Rockets in Game 6 on Friday.

Lacking from the motion used to be Warriors superstar Kevin Durant, who is currently sidelined with an ethical calf stress. Durant did not shuttle with the group, and in its put watched the Warriors set away with the Rockets back in The Bay.

He shared his celebratory reaction on Instagram:

Also providing an prompt reaction used to be LeBron James, the Warriors’ finest rival at some point of their latest championship runs. James is in overall off social media this time of 300 and sixty five days, but with his Los Angeles Lakers not in the playoffs, he’s had time to comment on Twitter after definite video games. He elected to stay just that on Friday by giving props to the persevering Warriors.

NEVER underestimate the coronary heart of a Champion‼️‼️

And coming to the protection of Stephen Curry, who struggled this series but came alive when it mattered, used to be future Hall of Famer Dwyane Wade.

Y’all better give up disrespecting @StephenCurry30 just because he’s a bunch first man and is willing to sacrifice in moments doesn’t point out he’s not peaceable a beast.
