It's important that we not read too much into these pre-season games, but man, Kevin Durant is already looking comfortable with the Golden State Warriors. Last night, the Dubs put a pillow over the face of a sleepy Clippers team, before hitting that pillow with a flaming semi-truck.
The result: Durant scored 21 points as the Warriors clobbered their downstate rivals 120-75 with threes, easy finishes at the rim, switch-y defense, and pretty-ass ball movement. It was never really close.
Hmmm, the Warriors look like they could be pretty good.
