Two games into the postseason, he's proven even more central to Golden State's continued success, giving the Warriors a lob threat on the roll and a defensive stopper capable of limiting San Antonio Spurs big man, LaMarcus Aldridge.
While that quote could be seen as a slight to Leonard, the Spurs have had no answer for the Warriors, who have shot almost 47% from 3-point range in the first two games of the series.
Aldridge elevated his performance by grabbing 12 rebounds and scoring a game-high 34 points. Now, Golden State has a chance to take full control of the series with a victory in Game 3 on Thursday night (9:30 p.m. ET) in San Antonio. Durant and Thompson found their rhythms in both games and could be in for another strong showing against a San Antonio defense that found no answer for them. The first two games have been ugly but so have many road games for the Spurs this year. He is averaging 29.0 points and shooting 69.7 percent (23 of 33) from the field and 71.4 percent (10 of 14) from 3-point range.

Durant has been pretty tough to stop the last couple of games. Through the past few months of the season, the Spurs have had to deal with a major injury to Kawhi Leonard, which gave the team a decided disadvantage against the Warriors who are a much deeper team.
The Warriors went with their same starting lineup from game 1 that consisted of Andre Iguodala, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, and JaVale McGee. Through two games, the Warriors have now outscored the Spurs by 36 points off three-pointers.
The Warriors, the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference Playoffs, are known to produce a greater amount of energy at one special moment in the game. With the Warriors focused on completing the series as quickly as possible in an effort to get some much needed rest, there is no reason to expect Kevin Durant and company to let their foot off the gas heading in to Game 3 National Basketball Association matchup.
