Kevin Durant of the Golden State Warriors admitted that he loves the way his team plays.
Per Mark Medina of The Mercury News, Durant opened up about how even the shot attempts are between him and the Splash Brothers, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Entering Wednesday night, they’re all taking 19.7 shot attempts per contest.
“I love the way we play.
“Evenly distributed among the best shooters and scorers on the team,” Durant said without any hint of surprise following morning shootaround on Wednesday. “I think that’s also a huge credit to our teammates that set screens and pass to us and allow us to be who we are out there. I don’t see that changing.”
The Warriors are known for running one of the most potent offenses in the league. Not only do they possess premiere offensive talents in Durant, Curry, and Thompson, but they also follow a style that efficiently utilizes their skills. On top of this, it seems that every single player donning the Warriors jersey is on the same page. A good testament to this fact is that Durant admits to seeing and taking the same exact shots every game:
“That is pretty weird to see the same exact shots. But that’s how we play and it’s the flow of the game.”
The Warriors currently are in third place in points per game at 116.4 per contest, behind the league-leading Milwaukee Bucks and New Orleans Pelicans. However, they are the most efficient as they are shooting at a league-best 49.2 percent clip. Like they always say, it’s about quality, not quantity, and the Warriors definitely get the best looks out there thanks to their system and discipline.
