On Monday evening, the Golden State Warriors got Kevin Durant back on the court for Game 4. While "KD" didn't necessarily light up the scoring, his presence was enough to assist in a 128-103 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. The win eliminated Portland from the postseason and came with Golden State's Steve Kerr still missing from his coaching position. Here's a look at how the Warriors claimed Game 4 in their NBA Playoffs matchup and what's coming up next for the teams.

Kevin Durant's return to court

The biggest stories of the night were Kevin Durant's return and head coach Steve Kerr's continued absence for Golden State.

Durant was sidelined with a calf strain but was able to go for 20 minutes of game action, finishing with 10 points, three rebounds, two assists, and two blocks. Durant also knocked down both his three-point shots he attempted.

However, Stephen Curry continued to show why he is this team's "MVP." The reigning two-time winner of the award had a game-high 37 points including 7-of-11 three-pointers. Curry also grabbed seven rebounds and dished out eight assists for a brilliant performance.

Teammate Draymond Green also added 21 points, six boards, and four assists, while Klay Thompson was 6-for-13 and finished with 18 for Golden State. Starter Zach Pachouli also managed double-digits, with 11 points, while David West came off the bench for 12.

The Warriors shot 53.5 percent for the night including 58.6 percent from three-point range.

Head coach Steve Kerr was still away from his coaching duties due to the recent nagging issues from a back surgery he had several years ago. However, assistant head coach Mike Brown filled in for his second-straight game and helped guide the team to the sweep win.

For Portland, it means another early exit from the postseason, but Damian Lillard still showed heart. The Trail Blazers guard finished with 34 points on 12-for-24 shooting, and also had six assists. Teammate CJ McCollum had a rough outing as he hit just two of the 12 field goals he attempted and was 0-for-4 from beyond three-point range.

He ended with just six points, while Al-Farouq Aminu came off the bench for 25 points.

What's next for these teams?

The Golden State Warriors will now sit back and await their next round opponent. They'll await the winner of the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers series. Currently, it's knotted up at two games each with Game 5 on Tuesday night in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, the Portland Trail Blazers go back to the drawing board for next season. They'll have a chance to snag some more talent in June's NBA Draft. Current speculation pegs them as getting as high as the No. 15 pick, so stay tuned.
