Durant says loss to Memphis changed season

After claiming his first NBA title on Monday night, Golden State Warriors All-Star Kevin Durant reflected on the turning point in his season, which came after an OT loss to the Grizzlies in January. "I was struggling at that point," Durant said of the January loss. "To have teammates that encourage you, that lift you up, that's what we all need in life. We came together, believed in each other and sacrificed. And we're champions now."
