Kevin Durant Injured His Achilles in Second Quarter of NBA Finals

With Kevin Durant back, the Golden State Warriors really had the confidence and belief that they could win Game 5 in Toronto and beat the Raptors to remain alive in the NBA Finals.

Unfortunately, the fun only lasted two quarters because KD went down in the second quarter with a calf injury, being carried on the way to the locker room. We can assume he is out for the rest of the game and the series. The question now is how badly he re-aggravated the injury this second time and how long it will take to recover from it.

UPDATE: The Warriors rallied and won the game 106-105. Kyle Lowry had a shot to win the game at the buzzer but missed off the side of the backboard.

UPDATE: Bob Myers confirmed that KD injured his Achilles while holding back tears and speaking about how he’s one of the most misunderstood players in the league. Durant was seen walking out of the arena in a boot and on crutches. He will have an MRI tomorrow.
