Draymond Green believes the Golden State Warriors would have comfortably defeated the Toronto Raptors in last year's Finals if Kevin Durant wasn't injured.
"Once we got Kevin, we were f--king unstoppable," Green said of signing Durant in 2016. "Even losing last year, Kevin don't get hurt—you seen the game he came back in Game 5, I looked up, it was like six minutes to go, we had like 40 points in the first quarter—and so they wouldn't have stood a chance if Kevin didn't get hurt."
Durant suffered a calf strain during Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals and returned approximately one month later for Game 5 of The Finals. Durant suffered a torn Achilles in the second quarter.
The Raptors went on to beat the Warriors in six games in The Finals.
