Kevin Durant returned to action for the Golden State Warriors with their season on the line last night in Game 5 of the NBA Finals vs. the Toronto Raptors. After a hot start, Durant went down with an apparent Achilles injury in the second quarter. The Warriors were still able to hang on without their all-star forward, relying on Steph Curry and Klay Thompson to lead them to a 106-105 victory, forcing a Game 6 on Thursday.
