Kevin Durant Injury in Game 5 is Painful to Watch

in NBA

Kevin Durant started hot with 11 points in the first quarter of play and when everything seems to be going right for him, he started to hobble and came down with 9:46 on the clock.

People believed Durant has aggravated his calf-injury suffered around four weeks back. To see a player comeback and bring life to a team struggling to remain in the NBA Finals 2019 and then come going down with another injury is painful to watch. Please get well Kevin Durant, this time fully recovered before stepping on the floor again.,

Kevin Durant is playing in Game 5 of the NBA Finals 2019 without any restriction in minutes. This means the doctors have cleared him in full swing!

It is now up to Durant if the layoff is going to slow him down but nevertheless it should open new scoring opportunities for the Golden Stae Warriors.

Stephen Curry Delivered NBA Finals MVP Numbers Not Enough in Game 3

Stephen Curry was brilliant from the opening buzzer until the remaining minutes of the 4th quarter as he delivered NBA Finals MVP numbers with 47 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists, and 2 steals.

His monstrous effort however was not enough to win against the Toronto Raptors in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. Curry was playing with a depleted lineup as Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Kevin Looney are all injured and didn’t play. He had little help from his team as only Green and Iguodala scored in double figures 17 and 11 respectively.

Curry did everything he can making plays, hitting the big shot, hustling and diving for loseballs but Green’s intensity was not there, the perimeter defense to stop the outside shooting of the Raptors did not rotate fast enough.

On a positive note, the Warriors was always in striking distance of only trailing between 7 and 13 points throughout the game.

Even if KD, KT and KL comeback and the Warrios win the title, Curry winning Game 2 for the Warrios and tonight’s performance is enough for him to win the NBA Finals MVP award.

Mike Francesa Fired at Iguodola then Praises him as a Winner

in NBA

Mike Francesa New York’s #1 and host of WFAN-AM blasted Iguodola during the Game 2 NBA Finals between the Toronto Raptors and Golden State Warriors.

At 8:07 PM on Sunday June 2 he has this to say — “Iguodala has absolutely nothing. Sad to watch. Series setting up well for Durant to be a hero.“:

In the last few seconds of the 4th quarter Iguodala fires and makes the 3-point shot that put the Warriors ahead by 5 sealing the win for the defending NBA champions.

Mike cameback and tweeted more than 30 minutes after his first take on Iggy — “Iguodala has absolutely nothing. Sad to watch. Series setting up well for Durant to be a hero.”:

And calling Iguodala a winner the second time around “Give GS credit but that was one ugly game. Iguodala can’t move any more but he is a winner.”:

People are quick to forget when players are on a downhill but quickly change gears with a single crucial shot. Iggy is the 2019 NBA Finals MVP, the clutch player who won Golden State Warriors a lot of games finished with eight points and added 8 rebounds and six assists.

Iguodala age is catching up but he is as cold as ice during clutch and he is not yet done.

Stephen Curry is the king of Free-throw shooting and before the Portland Western Conference Game he has never missed a 4th quarter playoff free-throw since 2015.

But Kawhi Leonard has also proven he can calmly shoot free-throws as he have set an NBA Finals record of 16-16 free-throws despite losing to the Golden State Warriors 109-104.

People talking about Kawhi Leonard setting the record:

Barack Obama Welcomed in Toronto for Raptors vs Warriors Game 2

Former US President Barack Obama is welcomed by the Toronto Raptors as he attended the Game 2 of the 2019 NBA Finals vs the Golden State Warriors.

Barack and Raptors president Masai Ujiri are good friends from Ujiri’s work with the Giants of Africa as well as being together during trade talks with Kawhi Leonard.

However, it is unclear if Obama is supporting the Raptors since he also has a strong bond with Stephen Curry who has supported Obama-led charitable programs and having visited him after winning the 2018 Championship title.

The crowd chanted MVP for Barack Obama including a standing ovation when he was shown in the jumbotron, a very nice and warm gesture from Toronto.
