Kevin Durant scored 44 points on 13-of-26 shooting (2-of-8 3PTs, 16-of-17 FTs) with 13 rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and seven turnovers in the Warriors' 117-116 win over the Kings on Saturday.
Durant is supremely skilled and some of what he brings is devastating in ways we've never really seen in the league. Despite that he has always had trouble setting tempo and the same style of offense that we saw the Warriors struggle with in the playoffs against Houston was on display in this one. Naturally that led to a lot of stats and that's to be expected with Stephen Curry and Draymond Green out.
