 Warriors win 106-105 to force Game 6.  However, the story of the night is KD. 

Bob Meyers was fighting back tears at the podium, KD will have an MRI tomorrow.  The ramifications of this injury could echo for several years.  Hopefully KD doesn't have a complete tear.  If it is a complete tear...he'll be out all of next year.  He's also going to be a Free Agent.  If you're the Knicks or Nets, KD's injury changes everything!  Knicks tanked and reorganized a lot of stuff planning to sign KD. 

Tomorrow there will be lots of blame going around.  If KD had a partially torn Achilles, he would not have played tonight.  Blame should not be placed on the medical staff.  There is no one to blame.  This was a freak accident.  Not being rushed back from injury, or the medical staff failing at their jobs.  The entire NBA landscape has now been altered because of one play and one freak accident.
