Kevin Durant gave it all he had in Game 5 before reinjuring his right calf/Achillies. The Warriors star scored 11 points in 12 minutes of play.
KD had to be helped off the court and to the locker room after going down and holding the Achilles area on the back of his ankle.

As he got up and limped off the court Raptors fans started cheering the fact that KD was injured. It’s not the reaction you would expect from Canadians and it’s not the reaction Raptors players wanted to hear from their fans.
Multiple Raptors players joined Warriors players in telling the fans to stop cheering Durant’s injury.

Say what you want about KD, but he earned a lot of people’s respect tonight by making an attempt to play. Even haters have to applaud the effort.
