Season likely over for Warriors' Durant
The Golden State Warriors will find out Tuesday just how badly Kevin Durant is hurt, but it's clear that his season is over.
Durant left Monday night's Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors with an Achilles injury. So, even after Golden State kept their championship hopes alive with a 106-105 victory, nobody was in a mood to celebrate. Toronto forward Kawhi Leonard called the injury to Durant "devastating."
Durant had missed the previous nine games with what the Warriors insist was a strained calf muscle.
Last night's win by the Warriors sends the series back to Oracle Arena for Game 6 with Golden State still down 3 games to 2.
