Kevin Durant 2019: Steve Kerr and Warriors Players Praised Durant Following Monster Performance Against Grizzlies

Kevin Durant recently achieved his most efficient game in his career when the Golden State Warriors clashed against the Memphis Grizzlies a couple of days ago. The 30-year-old – considered as one of the top three players in the league – went 12 for 13 in the field.

By the end of the match, Kevin Durant managed to score 28 points, grabbed nine rebounds, and dished out five assists in the span of 32 minutes. But what’s really impressive is how he did it so casually as he guided his team to a 128-118 victory, NBCSports reported.

Needless to say, Steve Kerr and the rest of the Warriors roster were awed at Kevin Durant’s performance. Stephen Curry said that Durant’s presence on the floor is a huge part of the team’s success given that he’s attracting a lot of attention from the defenders of the opposing team. This, in turn, opens up Curry, Thompson, and the rest of the sharpshooters to find their spot and drain shots beyond the arc.

“[Kevin Durant] does whatever he wants each game,” coach Kerr said after the match. “I felt like he could have been 24-for-25 if he wanted, but he was distributing the ball and trying to get everybody involved. He was brilliant. ... Kevin is who he is. He's one of the most efficient players ever. He can get any shot he wants against any defense. So regardless of how somebody is playing us, he can go get a shot and it's a good shot.”

Regarding the future of Kevin Durant on the Warriors, nothing substantial has emerged so far. Durant himself is keeping his future decision close to his chest and refuses to talk about the matter to the press. Indeed, he even went on a brief tirade against sports journalist after they incessantly asked him what his plans are on his impending free agency.
