All over Oakland right now people are wearing Warriors shirts and flying their Warriors flags from their cars, and as much as we like our hometown team here at 99pi, we've been following these National Basketball Association finals for another design-related reason. After scoring 11 points in the first quarter, Durant reinjured his leg and had to leave the game. But few had all the drama and emotion that will fill the Oakland air Thursday. Toronto now leads the series 3-2. It ultimately led to the Spurs dealing him to the Raptors, with whom Leonard is. "Just needed to make a couple more plays".
Durant exited Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night early in the second quarter with what Warriors general manager Bob Myers later revealed was an injured Achilles. In Durant's case, he said, the forward might have felt internal pressure to return after seeing teammates Klay Thompson, Kevon Looney and DeMarcus Cousins appear in the NBA Finals after suffering injuries.
They can't worry about that now. "It's definitely an exciting time, and we've seen celebrations and "Jurassic Parks" pop-up locally, just as we've seen across the country", says Johnson. Everybody is facing fatigue at this point.
"The takeaway is always to, for everyone to just remember who you are, and where you are shouldn't matter". "You've got to do what you came here to do anyway".
Aaron Wan-Bissaka Bid Rejected By Crystal Palace
But, it was in a league one step below the Premier League and the Norwich star also had more appearances against his name. Wan-Bissaka has a contract until 2022 and has not indicated that he will force a move this year.
Sportsnet and TSN, whose parent companies are co-majority owners of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, which owns the Raptors, split the National Basketball Association team's broadcast schedule.
The Warriors will nearly certainly have to rally without Durant, as the series goes back to Oracle Arena for Game 6 with the Raptors up 3-2 on Thursday.
So the Raptors won't be rattled by having to go back there, even though they almost avoided it.
A loss Thursday sends the Warriors into a summer they won't be eager to face. Prior to the injury, it was considered a virtual certainty that Durant would opt out of the final year of his contract with the Warriors to test free agency, where he would have commanded a max contract. He would show up to the Montrose gym at 6:30 a.m.to get up shots with then-assistant coach Dave Adkins, who now works with the Washington Wizards.
"Life is more important in terms of caring about an individual and what they're going through", Warriors guard Stephen Curry said.
