Unstoppable Kevin Durant drops 50 on Clippers, propels Warriors to second round
“I’m Kevin Durant. You know who I am. Y’all know who I am.”
The Clippers knew exactly who Durant was before this series started. Everyone did. That’s a very different thing than stopping him.
“I promise we tried…” Lou Williams said after Durant dropped 50 on the Clippers and ended their playoff run. “We tried everything. We tried everything.”
Just two nights before, on Wednesday, Durant set a personal new career playoff high scoring 45 points. It wasn’t enough, the Warriors lost.
Friday night he upped his game, scoring 38 points in the first half and 50 for the game.
That was enough. The Warriors won 129-110, taking the series 4-2.
The Warriors will start their second-round showdown with a well-rested Rockets team Sunday in the Bay Area....
Odd series - The visitor won 5 out of 6 games and Golden State won all 3 away games. Sucks for both teams' arena fans.
I'm 23-8 in games, 5-0 for series picks now, low seeds are 7-0 including both #4s > both #5s.
Denver (#2) > San Antonio (#7) in Game 7 in Denver
Toronto (#2) > Philadelphia (#3) and then win the Eastern Conference
Milwaukee (#1) > Boston (#4)
Golden State (#1) > Houston (#4) and everyone else
Portland (#3) > Denver (#2) or San Antonio (#7) and everyone else except Golden State
I may finally be rooting for a higher seed.
