Although the Golden State Warriors stayed alive thanks to the late game heroics of the Splash Brothers, much of the talk behind their Game 5 victory revolved around the devastating injury to Kevin Durant.

Making his return to the court in over a month after being sidelined with a calf injury, Durant was playing well until he suffered what appears to be a ruptured Achilles tendonin the second quarter, leading to an emotional exit from the series that even impacted the Raptor’s biggest fan.

As Durant was consoled by his teammates immediately after the severity of the moment was realized by all 20,000+ spectators in the arena, the global ambassador himself showed clear frustration as the perennial superstar was helped off the court, taking a moment to put what he means to the game all in perspective.
