We will start today with the amazing win by the Warriors against Raptors. In the NBA finals the warriors triumphed against the Raptors in a very close match, it saw the Warriors clinching a very vital win.
For the first four games of the NBA finals, the question lingered whether Kevin Durant would play, after sustaining a calf strain, Kevin Durant has not played since.
Naturally the Warriors were bombarded with questions, would they be able to claim their 3rd champion in a row, without the two-time NBA finals MVP.
The Warriors proved this against the Raptors, that they are still of doing just that after a thrilling win. Midway through second quarter Kevin Durant limped out of the game, with what the Warriors general manager, Bob Myers, later confirmed to be an injury to achilles. Well done to the Warriors for pulling through.
