Kevin Durant on final possession: ‘I didn’t fall on my own’
What else can Kevin Durant really say?
Right after the catch, Richard Jefferson smothered Durant and made contact with his leg, tripping KD and causing him to go to the ground where he was unable to get a shot up before time expired.
You be the judge.
After the game, Durant wasn’t happy about the final sequence, having this to say:

Durant has a point. He did not fall on his own.
KD was one of the bright spots for the Warriors going off for 36 points and 15 rebounds. He was quieter down the stretch however, making just two of his final eight shots as Golden State lost a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter.
This loss will sting the Warriors more than the usual regular season defeat. It was a Finals rematch and it was another blown lead. The kind of thing that might start getting in their heads.
