The Houston Rockets have to limit defensive miscommunications

With 2:11 left in the third quarter, Kevin Durant nailed a fadeaway jumper over Iman Shumpert, a shot that KD has perfected over his career. However, once Durant started to make his way back on defense, he felt pain his lower right leg as if someone had kicked him, but no one touched him.

That’s the classic story of an achilles tear, but fortunately, Durant seems to have a calf strain instead. That’s good news for Durant and the Warriors, but they’ll still have to face the Rockets without Durant for the remainder of the series.
