The last image Warriors fans have of Kevin Durant is the superstar being helped to the locker room in Toronto after tearing his right Achilles during Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals.

Warriors director of sports medicine and performance Rick Celebrini and then-Golden State forward Andre Iguodala aided a hobbling Durant down the tunnel.

Right behind them was Warriors point guard Steph Curry, who rubbed Durant's shoulders and said something to him.

Now we know what Curry told Durant during that difficult moment.

"That was a tough one. I don't know why I ran in the tunnel," Curry said on the latest episode of “Steph vs. The Game,” which debuted Monday night on Facebook Watch. "I think I knew it was something serious. But honestly, I think I threw a Bible verse at him just to encourage him, to keep his head, keep his spirits high and that we got his back."

The Warriors indeed had Durant's back. Despite his injury, they managed to pull out a Game 5 win over the Raptors to force a Game 6 back in Oakland.

The Raptors went on to win Game 6 to wrap up their first-ever NBA championship, and Durant later signed with the Brooklyn Nets in free agency.

But in the darkest moment of Durant's career, Curry had his back. Now that's a good teammate.
