TORONTO (AP) - 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.
