Kevin Durant made scoring 20 points look easy against the Suns during a 138-109 win on Saturday, adding four rebounds, eight assists, three blocks and one 3-pointer.
He needed just seven attempts from the field and made all nine from the line with just one turnover -- that's only a 16.2 usage rate. Durant's 91.2 true shooting percentage tonight boosted him to 68.0 on the season, which moves him back into the top spot on the season -- Patty Mills is No. 2 at 67.8. Durant also has 3.2 blocks per game in his last five. He's the number one player in fantasy right now. Dec 4 - 2:05 AM

Kevin Durant matched his season-high 39 points on 12-of-28 from the field during a 132-127 double-overtime loss at home to the Rockets on Thursday, adding 13 rebounds, two assists, three steals, three blocks and three 3-pointers.

The Warriors were not in a good rhythm on offense and Draymond Green said KD was stuck with some tough shots. Durant went 1-of-7 in OT and said he wasn't tired and just missed his shots, so at least that's a positive with Durant playing 49 minutes. KD has also lost his lead for true shooting percentage with Patty Mills leapfrogging him, but he's still the No. 1 player in standard leagues.
Dec 2 - 3:22 AM

Kevin Durant scored 25 points with 14 rebounds in Monday's 105-100 win over the Hawks.

The Warriors came into the game with the top offensive efficiency rating in the NBA and the Hawks were leading the NBA in defensive efficiency, but they couldn't slow down KD who finished 8-of-16 from the field with three assists, one steal, two blocks and one triple in 36 minutes. This was Durant's sixth game of the season with 20+ points and 10+ rebounds, and he's now recorded a double-double in back-to-back games.
Nov 29 - 1:19 AM

Kevin Durant blocked a new career-high six shots during a 115-102 win over the Wolves on Saturday, scoring 28 points with 10 rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers.

That's a 5x4 to make KD the first Warrior with a line of at least 25-10-5 with five blocks. Obviously the Warriors didn't miss Draymond Green's rim protection too much with Durant protecting the paint. On the other side of the ball, KD's offense has been absolutely awesome with his league-leading 68.4 true shooting percentage (TS%) on the season. More impressively, he's been extremely consistent with his worst game at a very, very good 55.4 TS%. He's currently sitting at No. 1 for nine-category leagues and may be out in front for MVP.
Nov 27 - 1:41 AM

Kevin Durant scored 29 points on 11-of-19 shooting in Friday's 109-85 win over the Lakers.

Durant also dished out a season-high nine assists in the win with six rebounds, two blocks, one steal and three treys in 33 minutes. Coach Steve Kerr said before the game that his key players feel "fresh", so it doesn't like he's planning to rest any of his studs for Saturday's game vs. the Wolves on the second night of a back-to-back set.
Nov 26 - 2:13 AM

Kevin Durant, coming off a left knee scare on Saturday, hit 3-of-9 shots, a 3-pointer and 7-of-7 free throws for 14 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks in just 27 minutes of an easy win in Indy.

Durant's knee is fine and while owners aren't used to see him score 14 points in a game, the lopsided score had a lot to do with it. Draymond Green filled the stat sheet with 10 points, nine boards, seven assists, two steals and two blocks, and Stephen Curry added 22 points, six boards, six assists, a steal and two 3-pointers in the easy win.
Nov 21 - 11:48 PM

Kevin Durant scored 33 points with six rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers during a 124-121 win over the Bucks on Saturday.

He did bang his left knee and caused a scare because he was in pain, but the Warriors didn't take him out after a timeout and trainers took a look at him. From that moment on, Durant looked great and after the game he said he was "cool" about the injury. Durant is just ridiculous right now with his 67.8 true shooting percentage on the year. Additionally, the Dubs used the Mega Death lineup for seven minutes tonight, which much higher than the average 4.7 minutes per game they've used in the previous 12. KD would be a monster no matter what teammates he had next to him.
Nov 20 - 2:19 AM

Kevin Durant dominated yet again on Friday during a 104-88 win over the Celtics, making 10-of-13 from the field for 23 points with 10 rebounds, seven assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

He's on his way to having one of the most efficient high-volume seasons in NBA history. He has an absurd 67.1 true shooting percentage with a 28.3 usage rate this season. Durant is getting 29 percent of his shots at the rim and making 82.0 percent of them. KD could get his first DNP-REST on Saturday, so his fantasy owners will have to check back to make sure he's good to go.
Nov 19 - 12:05 AM

Per coach Steve Kerr, all key players would be available for the Warriors in Boston on Friday.

Kerr did say that there is a chance Golden State rests some of their stars in Milwaukee on Saturday, the second game of a back-to-back. Kerr said the team would decide Saturday morning.
Nov 18 - 12:40 PM

The Warriors won their fifth straight game on Wednesday, aided by Kevin Durant's 30 points (11-of-21 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), nine rebounds, six assists and one steal.

It was a high-scoring 127-121 win for Golden State to begin their road trip, which continues with games vs. the Celtics, Bucks and Pacers. KD has turned in No. 1 fantasy value in 9-cat leagues through 11 games, erasing any doubts about his ability to thrive with so many offensive weapons on the same team.
Nov 17 - 12:23 AM

Kevin Durant scored 29 points during Sunday's 133-120 home victory, making two 3-pointers with nine boards, five assists, two blocks and one steal in 38 minutes.

KD's streak of 72 straight games with at least 20 points ended vs. the Nuggets on Thursday, but it predictably didn't take long for him to start a new one. He also has a career-best streak of 11 straight games with at least one block, but his fantasy owners are most pleased with the fact that he's been a top-three overall value this season.
Nov 13 - 10:43 PM

Kevin Durant scored just 18 points against the Nuggets on Thursday, adding nine rebounds, five assists, one steal and two blocks in 30 minutes.

His incredible streak of 72 consecutive games with 20-plus points has finally snapped. It was tied with Michael Jordan for the most since the NBA/ABA merger and coach Steve Kerr did keep KD in the game longer than the other stars. On the season, he's putting up an unreal 67.6 true shooting percentage while his usage rate has only dropped 2.5 percentage points compared to last year. KD is hanging at No. 2 in nine-category leagues.
Nov 11 - 1:00 AM

Kevin Durant scored 27 points with five rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes vs. the Lakers on Friday.

The fact that he played 35 minutes on the second night of a back-to-back set was very encouraging for his owners, as we heard several reports prior to the season that the Warriors would monitor the workload of their studs. While Durant's teammates struggled in the loss, he was super efficient once again by going 10-of-16 from the field and he's still holding down the No. 1 spot in standard leagues.
Nov 5 - 1:23 AM

Kevin Durant was on fire against his former team during a 122-96 win on Thursday, making 15-of-24 from the field for 39 points in 31 minutes with seven rebounds, one assist, one block and seven 3-pointers.

He played with a sense of anger like we've never seen. Durant matched his career high in treys for a game and he threw down his dunks with ferocity. After the game, Durant had some comments about Russell Westbrook wearing photography attire to the game. "I don't care about what nobody wear to the game," Durant said. Who gives a [expletive]? I don't care what he wore." Enes Kanter was also talking trash to KD and the former MVP threw some shade. "[Kanter] was talking to me. How many minutes did he play? Three," Durant said. KD is putting up an absurd 70.1 true shooting percentage on the season and doesn't appear to be taking a hit in fantasy whatsoever.

Kevin Durant again tried to debunk claims that there was a rift between himself and Russell Westbrook during his time in Oklahoma City.

"We’re boys," said Durant of Westbrook. "My interest went this way, his went that way. He got married, I didn’t. He hung with his wife. What you want me to do? I love Russ. I don’t care what nobody say. I don’t care what he say or what the fans say. Like, this is a tough time right now in our relationship. But I love Russ. I love his family. They all know that." This won't stop the narrative, but you won't hear Durant say anything negative about his former teammate. Durant will face his former team as they visit the Oracle Arena on Thursday, which is sure to be an exciting matchup.
