Kevin Durant hit 10-of-15 shots and three 3-pointers for 25 points, six rebounds, nine assists and a steal in Thursday's blowout 127-107 win over the Pistons.
He stayed in the game for a lot of fourth-quarter garbage time when Stephen Curry and most other starters were resting, giving him a nice boost in DFS. This was one of Durant's most efficient games of the season, but then again, it's also just a good example of what he does. Jan 13 - 1:11 AM

Kevin Durant hit 10-of-21 shots and three 3-pointers for 28 points, eight rebounds, zero assists, one steals and two blocks in Tuesday's 107-95 win over the Heat.

This was his first game of the season without an assist, which was a complete fluke. Draymond Green had 13 points, nine rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks in 36 minutes, as the Warriors easily handled the short-handed Heat tonight.
Jan 11 - 1:19 AM

Kevin Durant took some heat for a bad shot late in Friday's game, but he atoned on Sunday with 28 points on 9-of-15 FGs and 8-of-9 FTs, adding seven boards and six assists in a win vs. the Kings.

Durant also had one steal and four blocks in 36 minutes tonight. He's averaging 3.3 blocks in his previous three games and is over 700 blocks for his career, which reflects the versatility that makes him a fantasy luminary. He's been the No. 1 value in 9-cat leagues this season, edging out Giannis Antetokounmpo, James Harden, Anthony Davis and every other fantasy stud.

Kevin Durant scored 27 points with 13 rebounds, four assists, three blocks and four turnovers in 43 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday.

The Grizzlies were aggressive in attacking KD on defense and he also had some missed free throws late in the game. He didn't make any field goals in the fourth quarter or overtime in his 16.5 minutes of action. While the stat line was nice, this may have been Durant's worst game as a Warrior despite getting to the line 18 times. Expect a big game on Sunday in Sacramento.

Kevin Durant said that the Warriors always "want to play perfect" basketball.

"One thing about this group is they’re never satisfied," Durant said. "We always feel we want to play perfect. Even though that’s impossible, we’re striving for that." Durant also said he's still trying to round out his game and was critical of his play following Monday's three-rebound outing. That's the attitude you want from your No. 1 guy, and KD currently leads the Dubs in scoring (25.7), boards (8.7) and blocks (1.5). There's a reason why he ranks No. 1 overall in standard 9-cat leagues.
Jan 4 - 11:45 AM

Kevin Durant triple-doubled in a 108-99 win over the Mavericks on Friday with 19 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.

This was his eighth career triple-double and his first as a Warrior. KD hit 7-of-14 shots from the field and 3-of-4 from the line, adding two triples and four turnovers in 35 minutes. This was just his fourth game of the season with no blocks or steals (all in December), but that goes to show how consistent he's been across the board. He's the top player in standard leagues so far this season.

Kevin Durant matched his season-high 17 rebounds during a 121-111 win over the Raptors on Wednesday, adding 22 points, seven assists, five blocks and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

He may be the best scorer ever, but he's not just a scorer as this line shows. Durant had some interesting comments after the game and said that overpassing could have been the reason they've had some turnover woes. The Warriors are on a record pace for assists and have hit 30 in a game a whopping 22 times this year -- no other team has more than six of those. No matter how much passing there is on a given night, KD hasn't suffered at all this season and is fantasy's top player in standard leagues.

Steve Kerr admitted that Kevin Durant's addition has created the need for offensive adjustments.

"Yeah, it definitely changes the dynamics," Kerr said. "It’s harder, in some ways, to add a star player rather than a role player. It’s a great problem to have but it’s more challenging. So we are still not where we need to be in that regard. Steph, I think, will get more and more comfortable as the season goes. But it’s a little bit of a different vibe, for sure." The head coach added that Durant "handles the ball quite a bit, as he should," so don't expect Golden State to force-feed Curry in an attempt to right the ship. Kerr and the rest of the Warriors are well aware of how important the reigning two-time MVP is to their overall success, and these are the kinds of "problems" targeted teams can face during the course of the regular season. By the way, Golden State is 27-5.

Kevin Durant scored 36 points on 11-of-23 shooting during the Warriors' Christmas Day loss to the Cavs, adding 15 boards, three assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block in 38 minutes.

Durant was also a perfect 12-of-12 from the charity stripe and this was his first Christmas Day double-double, and his fourth 30-10 game of the year. Unfortunately, KD bobbled the Dubs final possession, tripping to the floor with 3.7 seconds left, and that was all she wrote for Golden State. Fantasy owners could probably care less with a line like this, though, and Durant remains fantasy basketball's No. 1 stud. For what it's worth, Durant said after the game that he didn't fall by himself.

Kevin Durant drained 13-of-18 shots en route to a game-high 32 points on Friday, adding three 3-pointers, eight boards and three assists.

Durant and Steph Curry (25 points, eight assists, five threes) were both efficient tonight, helping to compensate for somewhat quiet offensive lines from Draymond Green and Klay Thompson, who were a combined 7-of-22 from the field. The Warriors gave up 34 points in the paint and 17 points off turnovers in the first half tonight, but their elite offense compensated to help them earn a seventh straight victory.

Kevin Durant hit 10-of-23 shots for 26 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, and three steals in Thursday’s win against the Nets.

This was the second time in the last three games that Durant has scored 26 or more points, which is good to see as he recently went on a six-game stretch with 21 or fewer points. That being said, he is still averaging career highs in rebounds (8.4), blocks (1.6), and field goal percentage (53.9).

Kevin Durant went 8-of-14 from the field and 6-of-6 from the charity stripe on Tuesday, on his way to 22 points, five boards, one assist and one turnover in 25 minutes.

Foul trouble and the blowout nature of the game resulted in a less-than-stellar stat line from fantasy basketball’s top option, but he should have no trouble bouncing back with a typical stat stuffing Durant-line Thursday night in Brooklyn.

Kevin Durant hit 11-of-13 shots for 34 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, two steals, a block and four 3-pointers in 31 minutes of Saturday's incredible 135-90 win over the Blazers.

Portland never knew what hit 'em and had the score not been so lopsided, KD would have played some in the fourth quarter and had an even bigger night. This was KD's third 30-10 game of the season. Are you still waiting to see if the Warriors are going to get along, put egos aside and play good basketball? Yeah, neither are we.

Kevin Durant hit 7-of-18 shots for 15 points, 14 rebounds, eight assists, and two steals in Thursday night’s win against the Knicks.

Durant finished two assists short of his first triple-double of the season. The 15 points marks his second lowest scoring night of the season and he has now scored fewer than his 25.9 point season average in seven of his last eight games. Despite the lack of scoring, he is averaging career highs in field goal percentage, rebounds and blocks.

Kevin Durant hit 10-of-19 shots and a 3-pointer on his way to 27 points, three rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 37 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Pelicans.

Durant was in a funk, hitting just 6-of-21 shots on Sunday and failing to score more than 22 points in six straight games. He broke out of it tonight, but his line paled in comparison to the monsters posted by teammates Draymond Green and Stephen Curry. Despite all of that, he's still the No. 1 or 2 player in fantasy this season, in most formats. Curry had 30 points, seven assists and five 3-pointers in the 113-109 win.
