The Golden State Warriors are surviving a tough stretch of the season, plagued by injuries, yet aided by a strong record that has etched their name as the West’s No. 2 seed this season. Yet the wait remains, with perennial All-Star Stephen Curry still out with Grade 2 MCL sprain that should keep him out until mid-April at the very least.

Forward Kevin Durant is now tasked with carrying the offensive load in Curry’s absence, which for the first time has put doubt into the Warriors’ longevity through the postseason.

The air of invincibility has slowly faded this season with the likes of the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City finally showing they can beat a team with championship pedigree, as they’ve both done twice this season.

“We know how good Houston is,” said Durant, according to Sam Amick of USA TODAY Sports. “We know how good OKC is. We know how good Utah (is), because we play these guys, you know what I’m saying? That’s why we know the narratives, because we come in and we play Utah and we know they’ve gone 22-4 (now 22-5) since they beat us (on Jan. 30).”

Yet Durant maintained the Warriors are vulnerable, and could still be even after Curry returns if that laser-focus isn’t on at the right time.

“It’s cool that people (looked) at us like we’re invincible, but we’re not, and you see it with the injuries that we have. We’re not superhuman,” he added. “I think when we play basketball the right way, we’re damn good. But if we don’t come out there and focus, we can lose to anybody, and you’ve seen that.”

The Warriors have struggled to get wins, but have managed to split their last 10 games, going 5-5 and still being in play for yet another 60-win season if they win four of their next five games, but the chances could be slim with four of those next five games taking place on the road and likely to rest players to keep them healthy for this imminent playoff run.
