The KD factor: Warriors thinking of Durant on 'strange and unique night'

OAKLAND — Kevin Durant’s season-ending Achilles injury adds one more aspect to the multi-layered motivation the Warriors will take into Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.

The Warriors, down 3-2 to Toronto, are fighting to stay alive in their quest for a third straight NBA title.

They’re also preparing to play their final game ever at Oracle Arena, their Oakland home for 47 years.

The key to getting through the potential distractions is to focus strictly on the game, and save the hugs for afterward.

Kerr said that will be the time to acknowledge fans and Oracle workers they’ve all gotten to know over the years.

Kerr hopes his players’ experience during this five-year run of NBA Finals will be helpful.
