Warriors showcase defensive strides in Game 2 win over Spurs

  Warriors showcase defensive strides in Game 2 win over Spurs Last week, as his staff was trying to cram an in-depth scouting report of San Antonio into a few days, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr came to a critical realization: What the Spurs do would matter far less than whether Golden State played up to its defensive potential. Matador defense had plagued the Warriors in the final month of their regular season. With Stephen Curry expected to miss the entire first round with a sprained left MCL, Kerr stressed to his players the importance of ratcheting up their intensity and stringing together stops.It is that simple formula that has powered Golden State to a 2-0 series lead.

Kevin Durant liked an Instagram comment criticizing Russell Westbrook, for his second embarrassing social - media gaffe of the season. This, naturally, set off a giddy response from the NBA internet, which loves nothing more than scrutinizing the social - media activity of league All-Stars.

Social media can be a great way to stay connected with friends and family, and stay up-to-date Social media is a major time-suck. You might commit to logging on for just 10 minutes, and, before Staying off social media helps you use your time for more productive pursuits such as getting work

Taken at face value, the like seemed to represent Durant trashing his former teammate two years after abandoning him OKC.

This, naturally, set off a giddy response from the NBA internet, which loves nothing more than scrutinizing the social-media activity of league All-Stars.

But before fans even had time to revel in how #petty Durant’s like was, the Warriors star had checked in with an explanation: The like was a “total accident,” he told reporters, not a deliberate shot at Russ.

On one hand, that explanation seems about as hard to believe as the age-old “I was hacked” cop-out. On the other hand, could Durant really have been dumb enough to think no one would notice him pulling that move? Or that it wouldn’t blow up into an online frenzy.

In a way, it doesn’t matter. Because whether Durant vastly misunderstood how the internet works or simply has the clumsiest fat fingers in the NBA, it’s clear he needs to get the hell of social media.

But on social media , Durant is all of us. He’s way too accessible on Twitter and Instagram. He’s hilariously defensive, especially for a two-time NBA Finals Durant ’s potential to make a social media splash is, in some ways, the back-burner story line that hangs just on the periphery of the NBA Finals.

Kevin Durant goes extremely in depth on the Clippers style of defense, the overhelp, why he won’t The exchange took everything we thought we knew about Durant ’s relationship with the media and The way Durant broke down his battle with Patrick Beverley is beautiful to watch. As it turns out, when

This, of course, is not Durant’s first embarrassing online gaffe of the season. Back in September, he defended himself (in third person) against a random Twitter user in a tweet he clearly meant to send from an anonymous burner account. You would think being laughed at by the entire internet-enabled world (including his own teammate Draymond Green) would have taught him to be more careful on social media, but it seems not. On Monday, he was at it again.

Every year around this time, KD’s rival LeBron James goes dark on all his social-media so he can focus on the playoffs. Durant should probably follow LeBron’s lead… and then never bring his accounts bac
