Myers, while trying to contain his emotions as he sat down for a post-game news conference and then throughout the brief session, said the Warriors had "felt good about the process" of clearing Durant to play.

"I don't believe there's anybody to blame," Myers said. "But I understand this world, and if you have to, you can blame me. I run my basketball operations department."
