Kevin Durant hit 9-of-24 shots for 27 points, 12 rebounds and three assists, and Stephen Curry hit just 10-of-26 shots for 28 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals in Tuesday's Game 4 loss to the Rockets.
The Warriors have always relied on big (bad) plays rather than playing fundamentally or strategically sound basketball and the problem has worsened over time. Steve Kerr's ability to demand basic smart basketball is a question we've seen answered in past years when they've failed to adjust, and in tonight's game he was unable to call a timeout late when it was clearly needed. The conference finals in both series have been plagued with some really bad basketball and it's been an odd playoffs, but thankfully we're sitting on a pair of 2-2 series after it looked like blowout city.
