Stephen Curry says Durant's will to come back and play speaks to his love of the game and the kind of teammate he is, according to The Athletic:

Durant has been scrutinized every step of the way since signing with Golden State three years ago, creating an NBA superteam. Pundits and opposing fans have accused him of everything from taking the easy way out to a championship to the latest questioning about whether he was injured at all and just choosing not to play.

Warriors general manager Bob Myers was choked up at the postgame presser telling media that Durant had injured his Achilles.

"He's one of the most misunderstood people," Myers said. "He's a good teammate. He's a good person. It's not fair. I'm lucky to know him."
