Kevin Durant shot 6-of-17 on Saturday night, scoring 23 points with seven rebounds, four assists and a block in a Game 6 victory.
Durant salvaged his line with 10 free throws. The Warriors went back to the same ugly offense that featured Durant ISO actions and post-ups in the first quarter and deservedly fell down by 17 after the first 12 minutes. While it's hard for a player of KD's caliber to take a truly bad shot, the Dubs thrive on player and ball movement. The Rockets are happy to let Durant attack a perceived mismatch and shut down the off-ball stuff on the flanks. They snapped back to normal as the game went on but they can't afford to mess around in Game 7.
