Raptors Fans Cheer After Kevin Durant Suffers Achilles Injury

Raptors Fans Cheer After Kevin Durant Suffers Achilles Injury

Golden State Warriors fan Kevin Durant has been helped off the floor after appearing to re-injure his calf in the second quarter of Game 5.

Even though Game 5 will be best remembered for Durant's devastating injury, Nurse was relentlessly second-guessed for a crucial decision that deflated a boisterous crowd just waiting to celebrate the first championship in the franchise's 24-year history.

"Myers also said that while he didn't believe anybody is to blame, he's willing to accept the responsibility and said, ". if you have to, you can blame me. He's a good teammate, he's a good person. "I just want to thank KD for trying to put forth a effort that doesn't happen anymore".

The Warriors lost Kevin Durant barely a quarter after getting him back from injury but got the win, cutting Toronto's lead to 3-2 and sending the series back to Oracle Arena for Game 6 on Thursday.

Perhaps Vjuy Lam summed up what a lot of basketball fans across Winnipeg, and the country, feel about the Raptors' possibility of winning it all tonight when she said: "I've always followed them, but this has peaked my interest a lot more". Durant was helped off the court by Andre Iguodala, Stephen Curry and a Warriors trainer and into the locker room.

"I'm told it is quite quiet as you could imagine".

The Warriors star tried to gut it out and play on an injured calf/Achilles and actually looked good in the process. For Golden State head coach Steve Kerr, Durant's injury took some gloss off a crucial win.

Group pushes Boston ‘straight pride’ parade, sparks backlash
The group is also asking to add an "S" for straight to the acronym LGBTQ "because it's more inclusive that way". The so-called "mascot" of a straight pride organization wants nothing to do with the movement, it seems.

Durant logged just under 12 minutes, producing 11 points on 3-of-5 shooting, with all makes coming from beyond the arc, in addition to a pair of free throws. And some Raptors players, including Kyle Lowry, urged those fans who were cheering the sight of Durant limping to stop.

The Warriors' 20 3-pointers were the second-most for a team in a Finals game in National Basketball Association history, fewer than only the Cleveland Cavaliers' 24 in Game 4 of the 2017 Finals.

The widespread belief was that Durant had torn his Achilles.

Durant suffered what was deemed a "mild calf strain" in the Golden State's second-round series win against the Houston Rockets and he has not been seen in the Playoffs since.

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

Raptors fans initially cheered as Durant went down, but then recognized the extent of the injury and erupted into "KD!" "Nobody should have to go through something like that".
