Kevin Durant Planning to Play in Game 5 of NBA Finals

The "friendly wager" is on whether the Toronto Raptors or Golden State Warriors will win the NBA Finals.

While Durant's upgrade from out to questionable is a positive sign for a Warriors team desperate for support after falling down 1-3 to the Raptors, there's no guarantee that the forward will see the court.

The Warriors are listing Durant, who has been sidelined for more than a month with a strained calf, as a "game-time decision" for Game 5 although ESPN reported that the 30-year-old intends to play. Warriors head coach Steve Kerr sounded optimistic about Durant's chances to suit up Monday.

Durant averaged 26 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game with the Warriors this season.

Should the Raptors win Game 5 Monday night and clinch the National Basketball Association championship for the first time ever, Pelosi, who is from San Francisco, will be sending Trudeau a "selection of San Francisco's Ghirardelli chocolate, California wine and a selection of California almonds and walnuts", according to the PMO.

"You worry about the conditioning", Kerr said.

Kevin Durant's condition is being scrutinized on a minute-by-minute basis and understandably so.

Ahead of the game, Pelosi, who is from San Francisco and an ardent Warriors fan, says she'll send Ghirardelli chocolate, California wine and a smattering of almonds and walnuts from her home state should Golden State fail to win yet another title.

Durant was the NBA Finals MVP when Golden State captured titles in 2017 and 2018.
