Warriors Win Game 5, Durant Injured Again, Phillies And Diamondbacks Smash 13 Total Homers

Grace Higgins | June 11th, 2019

The Golden State Warriors didn’t get it done by much on Monday night, but at the end of 48 minutes, they got the job done against the Toronto Raptors, winning 106-105 to take the NBA Finals to a Game 6 and keep up their hopes of a third consecutive title in the process. The game began with a flurry of shooting from both teams, with Steph Curry knocking down nine points in the blink of an eye and Kevin Durant on court making shots as well for the Warriors. The Raptors kept responding, though, and the game looked to have swung totally in their favor when Durant got an injury in the second quarter and had to leave the game. That, however, wasn’t everything they needed, as the Warriors somehow held them off in the end to make it 3-2 in the series on the back of 31 points from Steph and 26 from Klay Thompson. Kawhi Leonard was only 9-24 from the floor but still had 26 points as Toronto lost out on clinching the title in the first Finals. Game 6 will be back in Oakland on Thursday night as the Warriors attempt to make the Raptors the second team ever to lose a 3-1 lead.

Kevin Durant looks like he has sustained a devastating injury and could be set to miss an extended period of time on the court after he, reportedly, picked up an Achilles injury on his right tendon in the Warriors 106-105 win on Monday night that extended their season. He left the game in the second quarter, with both teams’ players visibly shaken up by it. The injury is not an easy one to rehab, and he had just came back from a month out, so it all adds up to make this something that’s even worse to behold. Perhaps it was a little bit too much too soon, or it was just mileage finally catching up with him, but either way, this could be the end of an era.

It’s how the MLB is nowadays, so perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that a game be, with no extra innings, ended with the two teams combining for 13 home runs. That’s exactly what the Arizona Diamondbacks did on Monday as they defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 13-8 while the two teams set a record for the most total homers in the history of baseball. The Diamondbacks hit three homers in a row at one point and knocked eight total between them. It started quickly, with Jarrod Dyson, Ketel Marte, and David Peralta giving the Diamondbacks the early edge with their dingers. With the win, Arizona are now 35-32, yet they are still ten off the pace of the Dodgers in the NL West. The Phillies are now in a tie with the Braves in the NL East after they lost and Atlanta won.
