Nakapaglaro si Durant sa first at second quarter na nakadagdag ng malaking lamang laban sa Raptors subalit muli itong nag ka injury kaya nagpahinga ito bago mag 3rd quarter.
Nakapagtala si Durant ng 11 puntos habang sila Stephen Curry ay nakakuha ng 31 points, Klay Thompson 26 points, Demarcus Cousins 14, at Draymond Green 10 points.
Kapansin pansin ang ambag ni Durant sa first quarter na kahit kagagaling lamang sa injury ay pinilit pa rin niyang maglaro. Sa kasamaang – palad muli itong na-injury na nag dulot ng paggising sa mga kasamahan nito na pag-ibayuhin ang laro.
Umabot ng labing tatlo hanggang labing apat na puntos ang lamang ng Warriors kontra Raptors ngunit nagawa nitong humabol bandang fourth quarter sa score na 95 – 96 sa tulong ni Kawhi Leonard na nakapagtala ng 26 points.
Sa tulong nina Kyle Lowry na nakakuha ng 18 points, Maro Gasol 17 points, Serge Ibaka 15 points, nakabawi ang Raptors ngunit hindi pa rin nagpatalo ang Warriors dahil nagawa nitong ungusan ang Raptors ng isang puntos sa huling minuto ng laban.
Naging mahigpit ang laban at makapigil-hininga ang mga huling minuto ng 4th quarter dahil magiging champion ang Raptors sa 4 – 1 laban sa Warriors.
Subalit, hindi pinanghinaan ang Warriors kahit maagang nagpahinga si Durant dahil sa injury bagkus lalo pa itong nagsumikap kahit dikit na dikit ang laban.
Lamang ng isang puntos ang Warriors bukod pa sa homecourt ng Raptors ang Toronto na mas ramdam ang pressure dahil sa mga sigaw ng fans ng Raptors, nanaig pa rin ang Warriors sa huli.
Samantala muling maghaharap ang dalawang team sa June 13 sa Toronto.
\”He\’s a Warrior. You saw what he did tonight. He sacrificed his health for us and we dearly miss him. It was very deflating to see him go out. I\’m just going to pray for the guy, and I know he\’ll be back even stronger.\” sambit ni Thompson.

Roger Federer’s tennis legacy

Roger Federer’s tennis legacy

August 8th, 1981 marked the birth of Roger Federer. He plays tennis professionally and
is Swiss. He held the top spot in the global rankings for the Association of Tennis
Professionals (ATP) for 310 weeks, including a record 237 straight weeks, and five
times at the end of the year. His 103 ATP singles titles rank second all-time, and they
include 20 Grand Slam singles titles, an Open Era record eight Wimbledon men’s
singles trophies, an Open Era record five US Open men’s singles titles, and an
unprecedented six year-end titles.
Federer played during a time when the Big Three—Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and
him—dominated men’s tennis. The Big Three are regarded by some as the three most
successful men’s tennis players of all time. Federer, a former ball boy and the 1998
Wimbledon junior champion, won his first major singles championship at Wimbledon in
2003 at the age of 21.
Federer participated in 21 of the 28 major singles finals between 2003 and 2009. In
2004, 2006, and 2007, he won the ATP Finals, three of the four majors, and five US
Open and Wimbledon championships in a row. At the 2009 French Open, where he had
lost to Nadal three times in a row, he completed the career Grand Slam. Nadal
remained his major competitor until 2010. He broke Pete Sampras’ record of 14 major
men’s singles victories at Wimbledon in 2009 at the age of 27.
Federer won two majors between 2010 and 2016 but, despite spending the most of the
early 2010s in the Top 3, his supremacy on grass and hard courts was halted by the
rise of Djokovic and Nadal. He and Stan Wawrinka guided Switzerland to their first
Davis Cup victory in 2014 during this time, following their Olympic doubles gold medal
triumph at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. In the Olympic singles competition at the 2012
London Games, Federer also took home a silver medal after losing to Andy Murray.
Following a six-month break to recover from knee surgery in late 2016, Federer
returned to tennis with a bang, defeating Rafael Nadal in the 2017 Australian Open final
and capturing his eighth singles championship at the 2017 Wimbledon Championships.
Federer, 36, became the oldest ATP world No. 1 and the first person to win 20 major
singles titles at the 2018 Australian Open. He announced his retirement from
competitive tennis in September 2022 after winning the Laver Cup later that month.
Federer is an all-court player with versatility, and tennis fans adore him for what they
believe to be his effortlessness. As a junior, he struggled with self-control but later
improved his on-court conduct, winning the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award 13
times in the process. He earned a record-setting five victories in the Laureus World
Sportsman of the Year competition. He contributed significantly to the development of
the Laver Cup team tournament in addition to competing. He also engages in charitable
work.

He started the Roger Federer Foundation, which supports underprivileged children in
southern Africa, and has raised money in part through the Match for Africa exhibition
series. He consistently ranks among the top ten highest-paid athletes in all sports and
was the top athlete with $100 million in endorsement income in 2020.
