    With Kevin Durant back, Warriors enter playoffs as clear front-runners

    For someone who thought less than six weeks ago that he wou;d broken his leg, this wasnt half bad.

    Kevin Durant, as evidenced by his plus-22 outing in the Golden State Warriors 123-101 win over the New Orleans Pelicans at Oracle Arena on Saturday night, is not only healthy again but still very good at this game of basketball.

    The mid-range pull-up, with that impossible-to-guard sweep through leading up to it, was still there on this night where he finished with 16 points on 6-of-15 shooting. The fluid motion on drives, those long strides that cover so much ground, was as effective as ever. The defensive impact hasnt gone anywhere, either, that pride he takes in hitting the glass (a game-high 10 rebounds in all) and pushing the tempo as a playmaker for the league

    Early in the fourth quarter, as the Stephen Curry-less Warriors pulled away from a Pelicans team that was without its ferocious frontcourt of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, Durant flew past David Wests high screen and was bumped by big man Alexis Ajinca as he barreled through the lane. He was like a train off the tracks, falling to his right and planting that left leg that, not so long ago, had sparked so much speculation the Warriors title hopes were in jeopardy.

    No one could have blamed everyone from Warriors owner Joe Lacob on down for being nervous.

    He will be an important piece for sure. They should've rested him until the playoffs. There's no reason to risk an injury if they're sure to get the #1 seed

    They believed they cannot do without him and ofcourse, he is an important player.
