    TORONTO -- Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant will start in Monday's Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors and play in "short bursts" until they figure out how much he can contribute, coach Steve Kerr said.

    Short bursts eh.. this will be interesting. 

    Warriors are a 1 pt favorite right now.

    I know people will rag on the fans for cheering,  but they're cheering for the win now.  They know the difference.  

    Time for the North

    KD went down.  Disappointed in Toronto fans for cheering him going down...

    Because they know without Durant, the Warriors are toast, and with him,  they're practically unstoppable.  I can't blame them for cheering that KD tweaked a calf.  Im sure every one of them hoped he wouldn't play.  What's the difference? Now if they cheered when someone broke a leg or when there was a spinal injury,  that's different.  It's a calf. I guarantee you every fan at the beginning of the game hoped he would tweak it

    That is true.  I was hoping he did not play.  Was also wondering if he'd tweak.  Question answered.

    Raptors are playing terribly... yet still in it.

    All they need is a great five minutes and they can steal this game. It looks like they might be doing that.

    Kawhi... impressive timing.  Finish it now.

    Odds of making a last second three are much better when the ball doesn't hit the back of the glass.  Kawhi should have taken the shot.

    Dumbest thing I've seen in sports in a long while...you have 6 point lead and all the momentum...let's call a timeout...a momentum killer...just dumb.

    Raptors should have finished this one out.
  • Meltdown99Meltdown99 None Of Your Business...Posts: 7,539
    It looks like KD is likely done for this series.

    Report after the game is its more then a calf  Tweak.    Achillies!!

    Test to see the extent of the injury. If it turns out to be bad, he could miss next season. We shall see.  Sucks!

    Thank you.

    KD has a most likely, torn Achilles.

    Now the Knicks will actually get him...

    Dumb timeout by the Raptors coach.  Dumb, dumb, dumb.

    Kawhi needs to take that last shot.  Lowry ending it would have made a great story but they only needed a 2 pointer.

    Do you think there's a fan base in the NBA that would not have cheered at that specific moment? No way anyone was thinking Achilles,  I wasn't.

    Just because you have 4 timeouts doesn't mean you have to use one.  Impressive effort by the warriors

    I knew it was his Achilles because he wasn't holding his calf.

    All this makes me wonder if it was his Achilles the whole time and not his calf.

    Exactly.  Waste the TO, your best player is on fire, don't stop that momentum...
