Are we really criticizing Raptors fans for cheering Durant going down? Boston fans would likely do the same. Most fanbases would...
It’s not like he broke his neck. He strained a calf. 99% of the world would go to work the next day if they had they same injury. I’d cheer if it happened to Giannis last month.

Have the refs really been that bad and one-sided.

Of course. I would too. You’re not cheering the individual’s pain but your team’s fortune. His calf is already strained. No amount of thoughts and prayers are changing it. If he’s motionless on the floor for a minute, okay different story.

No. It's just basic, you don't taunt (which is what Toronto fans were doing) a guy who has fallen down to injury. That's classless. Of course anyone can be happy internally thinking it's a good competitive advantage, but cheering/taunting the way they did is classless. And have seen similar plenty of times where fans don't do that.

btw, why do networks think it's a good thing to have halftime shows inside arenas so their announcers are drowned out by some moronic halftime show? A studio is fine...do they really think it adds something?

FYI Rautins, Raps announcer had career ended by calf injury
If it is serious, any chance he exercises option and stays in GS, making Kyrie stay in Boston since he can't team up with his boy, making AD more amenable to coming to Boston and staying?

Hey, it could happen!

Warriors are 14/26 from 3 while the Raptors are 3/18. That's the whole game right now. If those both start to regress to the mean the Warriors will be in trouble.

This has been a really slow game because of all the fouls -- 33 so far. Lots of stoppages. That helps the Warriors I think, who need more from their stars. Makes it easier for Curry to play big minutes.

Curry has been amazing this game and Leonard has been kind of invisible. Seems like that's the story to me.

Kerr gave Curry and Green 2-3 minutes of rest at the start of the quarter and got away with it. He didn't do that in Games 3-4 and Curry ran out of gas down the stretch. Let's see if Curry's legs have a little more left now.

yeah Lowry has worked really hard to take himself from the butt of playoff-sweep jokes to a worthy second banana to Leonard.

That said, they better not keep forgetting to play defense after collapsing and a kick-out pass.

what was that move Leonard just made? Looked like something out of The Matrix. "I'm gonna freeze time just on my foot and leg, and then look around for 2 seconds..."

Hoping the Warriors win so the Toronto fans don’t get to celebrate on home court. What a bunch of assholes.
