Durant leaves with Achilles injury in Game 5 win

Durant leaves with Achilles injury in Game 5 win

Durant had not played since May 8 because of a right calf strain but was cleared to return to action in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, as the Warriors trailed the Toronto Raptors 3-1 in the series.

Myers choked back tears as he addressed media and confirmed Durant would undergo an MRI on Tuesday.

With their team heading home for Game 5 of the NBA Finals tonight, needing just one more win to secure the team's first ever Larry O'Brien Trophy, it sounds like they're about to face a new challenge: stopping Kevin Durant. I think they were the ones kind of saying to the crowd, "Let's check ourselves a little bit" and understand this is about an individual, a human being and not 'Oh, shoot, he's out, he's hurt, we won the championship.' That was probably their initial thought.

As of Monday afternoon, twice as much money had been bet on the Warriors as had been bet on the Raptors at MGM books, Stoneback said. "He's a good teammate, he's a good person, it's not fair".

"I just really follow them a lot", said Junior Wilmot, sporting a black jacket with an National Basketball Association logo on the sleeve.

The Warriors trail the Toronto Raptors 3-1 in the best-of-seven series, meaning their quest for a third consecutive National Basketball Association championship could end on Monday. They missed five of their last six shots - the only make was on a goaltending call - and went 0 for 3 from 3-point range in that crucial closing stretch. He consoled Durant as he walked off the court, and later dedicated an Instagram post to the Warrior. "Please wish the best for this true warrior". For Golden State head coach Steve Kerr, Durant's injury took some gloss off a crucial win. After a blazing start in which he scored 11 points in just 12 minutes of playing time, he buckled in the corner of the court, untouched.

"He responded well, and yeah, he's going to play", Kerr said in a pregame news conference.

The Warriors have played nine games since Durant went down with his calf injury on May 8.

"We just came across and just made a decision to give those guys a rest", Nurse said of the timeout.

Durant averaged 26 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game in the regular season.

"It felt great out of my hand", Lowry said. Raptors players were then seen trying to quiet the crowd down and prohibit the fans from taking pride in the star's injury.
