Kevin Durant    F  Warriors

 

 

Kevin Durant was on fire Wednesday, scoring a season-high 50 points on 17-of-27 field goals and 10-of-10 free throws with seven rebounds, six assists and six 3-pointers in 37 minutes. His heel went out of bounds on a 3-pointer that would have brought the Warriors within one point with 8.8 seconds left, but on a night when his teammates were struggling, Durant was a one-man wrecking crew. He even made consecutive four-point plays during an 18-point outburst in the third quarter, giving him 13 such plays in his auspicious career. This is the most he's scored with the Warriors, and his highest-scoring game since 2014, sending fantasy owners into the All-Star break smiling.

Kevin Durant played 30 minutes and hit 8-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for 17 points, seven rebounds, six assists and two blocks in Monday's ridiculous 129-83 blowout of the Suns. You may have heard of NBA TV's players only feature that has trickled down to TNT, but tonight it was the coach's version of players only, as Steve Kerr let his players coach the game. And that should tell you how scared Kerr was of the Suns. Steph Curry added 22 points, nine boards, seven assists and three 3-pointers and Klay Thompson had 16 points and two 3-pointers on a night Draymond Green was out with a sprained left index finger. There are blowouts and then there was this game.

Kevin Durant ended up with just 10 points, six rebounds and six assists over 29 minutes in Saturday's 122-105 win against the Spurs. The overall line wasn't terrible, but he was just 3-of-9 from the field, including 0-of-1 from behind the 3-point arc. KD was able to help out with two blocked shots, too, so it wasn't a total loss. However, he'll look to get back on track Monday against Phoenix, the worst defensive team in the NBA. Perhaps Durant's hand was still bothering him a bit, causing him to miss shots he'd normally make.

Kevin Durant (hand) is good to go vs. Dallas on Thursday. He was called questionable today with the Warriors putting a lot of players on their injury report. Durant's hand injury is not considered serious and expect him to dominate against a struggling Dallas defense.

Kevin Durant    F  Warriors

 

 

Kevin Durant (left hand contusion) is questionable to play Thursday against the Mavericks. This seems like an extremely minor issue for KD, but with a matchup against the 17-37 Mavericks, it wouldn't be all that shocking if he were to hit the sidelines. If Durant sits out Thursday's game, it'll either be Andre Iguodala or Omri Casspi drawing the start, with more minutes falling to Nick Young and Draymond Green (dental work). Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson would also see a spike in usage.

Kevin Durant    F  Warriors

 

 

Kevin Durant hit 8-of-14 shots, 3-of-8 3-pointers and 14-of-15 free throws on his way to 33 points, six rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in 30 minutes of Tuesday's 125-105 loss to the Thunder. Stephen Curry had 21 points and a full stat line, and Klay Thompson added 12 points and two 3-pointers in the blowout loss. The Thunder came out on fire in this one and Russell Westbrook appeared to be motivated after a hard foul from Patrick McCaw in the first quarter, and then torched the Dubs for 20-plus points in the opening stanza. Most of the Warriors starters sat for most of the fourth quarter and this was the first time they have lost two straight games this season, and they've now lost three of their last four. But they still have the best record in the league at 41-13.

Kevin Durant    F  Warriors

 

 

Durant generated 31 points (12-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-9 FT), seven assists, six rebounds and two blocks across 42 minutes in Saturday's 115-108 loss to the Nuggets. The All-Star forward didn't even attempt a shot in the first quarter, but he ended up spearheading the Warriors offense from that point forward and scored nine of his points in the final period. Durant now has consecutive 30-point efforts after having failed to hit the mark in the six previous contests. The difference has been his blistering shot, as he's drained 72.7 percent of his 33 attempts over his last pair of games, a stretch that includes a 66.6 percent success rate from behind the arc.

Kevin Durant scored 31 points with six rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and one turnover in 42 minutes against the Nuggets during a 115-108 loss on Saturday. It was a great offensive game from KD, but the Warriors defense completely fell apart in the fourth. They gave up 38 points in the fourth quarter and it's fair to chalk this up to a schedule loss on a back-to-back in altitude. Despite the possible concern about the Warriors, KD scored 30 points in consecutive games for the first time since December. This loss could be good news for his value because the Rockets are now just 2.0 games back and the Rockets do have the tiebreaker. KD gets a revenge game against OKC on Tuesday, so his stat line should be sweeter than a cupcake.

Durant posted 33 points (12-17 FG, 6-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six assists and four rebounds in 37 minutes during Friday's 119-104 win over the Kings. The Warriors looked like they were in for a rough game after the Kings built an early lead, but Durant wasn't going to let this game slip away. After an unimpressive game against Utah, Durant turned things around with a 15-point second quarter and helped put the game away down the stretch. It was an excellent shooting night for Durant, as he shot 70.5 percent from the floor and drained six of seven attempts from beyond the arc.

Kevin Durant finished Friday's game at Sacramento with a game-high 33 points across 37 minutes. Durant hit 12-of-17 from the field, including an impressive 6-of-7 from behind the 3-point line. He also chipped in with six assists and four rebounds. Perhaps the most noteworthy part of Durant's fantasy stat line was that it was his first time this season going back-to-back games without a blocked shot. He'll look to get back on track in the blocks department on Saturday in Denver.
