Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers spoke to reporters about it all. “It’s an Achilles injury. I don’t know the extent of it. He’ll have an MRI tomorrow. Prior to coming back, he went through 4 weeks with a medical team. It was thorough,” a tearful Myers said. “He was cleared to play tonight. That was a collaborative decision. I don’t believe there’s anybody to blame, but I understand in this world and if you have to, you can blame me. I run our basketball operations department.”

“I’m hurting deep in the soul right now. I can’t lie but seeing my brothers get this win was like taking a shot of tequila,” Durant wrote.

Durant, who scored 11 points during the game and was returning from a strained right calf, sustained the most recent injury in the second quarter. It was Durant’s first time back in about a month. Many people took to social media to call out Toronto fans who taunted Durant after he fell over.

The Warriors ended up winning the game 106-105. Game 6 will take place on Thursday, June 13 at Oakland’s Oracle Arena.
