What Steph Curry Said to Kevin Durant in Moments After Achilles Injury

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

Warriors director of sports medicine and performance, Rick Celebrini, and former Warriors forward Andre Iguodala aided a hobbling Durant down the tunnel.

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

Now we know what Curry said 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' 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, Golden State managed to pull out a Game 5 win over the Raptors to force a Game 6 back in Oakland.

The Raptors would go on to win Game 6 to wrap up their first-ever championship, and Durant would later sign 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.
