Sat Dec 903:50F Kevin Durant continued to pick up slack for another former MVP
F Kevin Durant continued to pick up the slack for another former MVP. That allowed the Warriors to complete their most successful road trip in franchise history. Durant piled up a season-high 36 points -- one game after pouring in a then-season-best 35 -- to go with 10 rebounds, seven assists and five blocks and Golden State won its sixth straight game by downing the slumping Detroit Pistons 102-98 on Friday at Little Caesars Arena. Durant came up a few assists shy of a second consecutive triple-double after also tallying 11 rebounds and 10 assists at Charlotte on Wednesday. Golden State was playing its second straight game without two-time MVP Stephen Curry, who will miss at least two weeks with a right ankle sprain. "Nothing different. Just more opportunity," Durant said of the scoring surge. "Coach may call a couple more plays for me but he always keeps me involved. But now we obviously don't have our leading scorer on the floor, so we try to generate points in different ways." Durant passed Bernard King for 45th place on the NBA's scoring list. Durant has now scored 19,684 points.

F KevinDurant notched his ninth career triple-double, finishing with a season-high 35 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in Wednesday's win at Charlotte. He scored 16 points in the first quarter to set the tone as the Warriors led by as many as 26 in the first half. Durant produced his second game with at least 30 points on a night when G Stephen Curry (ankle) and F Draymond Green (shoulder) sat out. "What a luxury to be able to just throw him the ball, especially with Steph out," Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. "He took over. It wasn't really scripted, it was just a natural product of Steph being out, Draymond being out. I just liked his pace, his energy. He was attacking from the start. It was like a 'I've got this' type of thing." Durant shrugged off any desire to take over the game, but he liked the chance to be creative"It's fun when you get to create," Durant said. "It's fun to just be creative out there. Passing for the lob, or creating the jump shot -- all the things you work on. It felt like tonight I was able to go to my bag of tools and pull some stuff out. I don't expect it to be like that every single game but we set the tone early and after that I didn't have to handle the ball that much."

He said the histrionics have gone too far."Yeah, yeah, early in the game, we got a couple of techs just arguing with the refs," Durant said. "I think that took us out of the game, so we've got to just stay poised in those situations. I can't let anybody -- I can't get involved with that type of stuff. I've just got to stay locked in and stay focused on the game."I'm not going to fight nobody. I don't want to get injured. I don't want to get suspended. I love to play. I love making money for my family, so I'm not trying to get suspended."
