Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green heaped praises for superstar teammate Kevin Durant, who had another incredible performance for the defending champions on Sunday.
Durant scored 35 points to lead the Warriors to a narrow 104-100 win over the Houston Rockets in Game 1 of the NBA Western Conference semifinals. The 30-year-old superstar has been on a tear in their last four games, and Green believes that Durant will continue to dominate.
Green said that that Durant has been very aggressive for the Warriors in their recent games. The do-it-all forward added that because of Durant’s mentality, he is convinced that there is no one in the NBA and in the world who can stop the former NBA Most Valuable Player.

Kevin Durant was also a man on a mission in the last three games of their first-round series against the Los Angeles Clippers. He scored 33 in Game 4, tallied 45 points in Game 5, and erupted for 50 points in their series-clinching win in Game 6. He averaged 35.0 points on 57 percent shooting in the opening round of the 2019 NBA Playoffs.
Clippers guards Lou Williams and Patrick Beverley admitted that they tried everything to limit Durant’s production, but they just simply failed to do so. Williams pointed out that Durant is a “special” player and there is nothing you can do to limit the production of a superstar like him.
The Rockets learned that firsthand, and it’s up to them to find a solution to their Durant problem in Game 2.
