Durant leaves with Achilles injury in Game 5 win

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant injured his Achilles tendon in what a highly emotional general manager Bob Myers said Monday night was a different injury than the one that kept Durant out for a month before returning as a starter in a 106-105 win in Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors.

Myers, while trying to contain his emotions as he sat down for a postgame news conference and then throughout the brief session, said the Warriors had "felt good about the process" of clearing Durant to play.
