Steve Kerr is far from running out of superlatives for Kevin Durant. In fact, he came up with a few more after Golden State's come-from-behind win over the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

"The game's easy for Kevin, it just is," Kerr told reporters, via NBCS Authentic. "I don't think there's ever been anybody as skilled at his size in the history of the league."

What Durant wanted on Wednesday was for the Warriors not to lose and he did more than enough to facilitate the team's 118-103 victory.

After going down 37-31 after the first quarter, the Warriors outscored the Grizzlies 35-23 in the second and 52-43 in the second half.

Durant scored 28 points on 12 of 13 shooting on the night and didn't miss a shot until the fourth quarter. He was a perfect 6 of 6 in the first half.

As good as this performance was, it wasn't atypical for the season. Durant has made at least 70 percent of his shots in seven games this year, 60 percent in 18 and 50 percent in 43. He is making 51.2 percent of his attempts on the season.

Durant has prided himself on being efficient for a long time and he spoke about that with reporters as well remembering where it all began in his NBA career.

"My second year in the league…I started charting my shots, makes and misses throughout the game" he said, via The Athletic. "That kind of reminded me to take good shots and it keeps me locked in on the floor in the game."

Since the 2008-09 season, Durant has shot worse than 47.6 percent just once. He has shot no lower than 50.3 percent since 2012-13, so his success on Wednesday came as absolutely no surprise to Kerr.

"He just does whatever he wants," Kerr said.

Kevin Durant fires back at Richard Jefferson’s on-air criticism.
Kevin Durant just saw it live and he won’t be silent, sorry. During Sunday’s game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the San Antonio Spurs, retired NBA swingman Richard Jefferson, who is now a commentator, took a shot at Durant and the Golden State Warriors. Jefferson criticized the Dubs for bringing in the four-time scoring champion after losing to Cleveland in the 2016 Finals, comparing it to getting beaten in a street fight and coming back with your older brother. Durant caught wind of Jefferson’s remarks and replied in an Instagram comment by simply saying, “Everybody from the streets now.” No burner this time? @KDTrey5#NBApic.twitter.
