CBS Sports Picks Bucks to Win NBA Championship if Warriors Durant Misses Remainder of Playoffs

The folks at CBS SportsLine are predicting the Milwaukee Bucks as heavy favorites to win the N-B-A championship -- if the Warriors Kevin Durant misses the rest of the playoffs. Durant suffered a right calf injury against the Houston Rockets in game five of the Western Conference semifinals Wednesday night and did not play Friday night as Golden State clinched the series four games-to-two. There is no timetable for Durant's return to the defending N-B-A champions. CBS Sportsline projects the Bucks have a 38-point-two-percent chance of winning the title if Durant's injury prevents him playing again this postseason. Under that scenario, the Warriors would be second with an 18-point-seven-percent chance of winning another N-B-A title. Golden State will face either the Portland Trail Blazers or Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals.
