DURANT TALKS ABOUT CHALLENGES OF GUARDING CURRY
Kevin Durant is arguably the toughest cover in the league, routinely frustrating opposing players, coaches and fans with his unguardable shots.
But one of the few in his stratosphere offensively is Steph Curry, the Warriors' sharpshooting guard who was in Oklahoma City on Friday night.
Before the game, Durant was asked what made him so hard to guard.
KD's extended answer: “He got the green light to shoot whenever he wants. But the shots he takes, it's kind of like, you never would think somebody would take those shots. Me, I think every shot he shoots is going in. So we have to be up on him every time he has the ball no matter where he is because he can shoot so deep and without effort. Him and Klay Thompson. I guess that's why they call them Splash Brothers. They can, with a flick of the wrist it's going in.”
Curry finished Friday night's game with 32 points, 11 rebounds and five assists.
