“We do it for Kevin.”

Those are the words of Klay Thompson, and that is the mindset of the Golden State Warriors heading into a must-win Game 6.

Before the game, Thompson took a moment to praise Kevin Durant — who is out for the series, and maybe all of next season, with a ruptured Achilles — in an Instagram post.


But DubNation, I need you to reflect on the fact that we would not be in this position if it weren’t for this man and his sacrifices. He’s the reason there are banners hanging in the rafters of Oracle.

The Warriors are going to miss Durant Thursday night, the closeout game at Oracle Arena, both on and off the court. That’s as much motivation as they need.
