Durant, booed when he had the ball, finished with nine points, four rebounds and three assists in 18 minutes, shooting just 2 of 9, and — gasp! — the Warriors lost, 97-93. There goes their chance at winning every game they play from now until June.
Here are a few more meaningless stats to draw conclusions from:
● Klay Thompson took the most shots, 13, and scored a game-high 16 points.
● Steph Curry had eight points and missed 4 of 5 threes in 16 minutes.
● Draymond Green had more fouls (4) than points (2) and missed both of his shots in 17 minutes.
● Rookie Patrick McCaw led the Warriors’ bench with 11 points, five steals and four assists.
