Golden State Warriors fans might have been a bit worried seeing Kevin Durant getting treatment on his lower left leg on Sunday. Because Durant missed more than a month of action right before the playoffs due to a left knee injury, there was real cause for concern.

Thankfully, it was nothing more than calf cramps, and Durant is reportedly “fine” going forward.

Before the mini-scare, Durant was having a stellar game in Golden State’s 121-109 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. He finished with 32 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and one block, going 12-of-20 from the floor.

Having Durant healthy throughout the playoffs certainly gives the Warriors a tremendous chance to get back to the NBA Finals for the third straight year. He’s looked fantastic since coming back three games before the postseason began, and the team appears to be synced up nicely, with Draymond Green leading the charge as the catalyst for Sunday’s big win.
