Spurs set to do battle with Warriors Wednesday

Spurs set to do battle with Warriors Wednesday”

The Spurs earned a victory in the last meeting between these two teams on November 18.

The Golden State Warriors put up a sizzling second and third quarter against the injury-decimated San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night, hitting 24 of 25 shots during a continued stretch that went from before halftime into the winding minutes of the third. Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins scored 15 points in his eighth game since returning from a almost year-long absence recovering from surgery for a ruptured left Achilles tendon.

Stephen Curry wasn't bad either: He had 19 points, seven assists, five rebounds, two steals and a blocked shot. Patty Mills scored 16 points with four 3s for San Antonio in the first game of a back-to-back.

Kevin Durant is not happy with his media coverage.

The 30-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Warriors when the season ends, with the New York Knicks most notably mentioned. He directly targeted The Athletic's Ethan Strauss regarding his article about the two-time National Basketball Association champion's "presumed exit" from the Warriors this summer. Now when I don't want to talk to [the media] it's a problem with me. "You got a dude coming in here, Ethan Strauss, coming in here giving his opinion on stuff, acting like it's coming from me".

After the game, Durant spoke to the media for the first time in over a week and made his anger known to reporters.

"You all come in here every day asking about free agency, asking me, asking my team-mates, riling up the fans".

The back-to-back National Basketball Association champion then continued to hit out at the media about their treatment of him asking them to "grow up" and not always talk about free agency. So when I don't say nothing, it's a problem.

Durant was right in the middle of the impressive display, and then took a few more shots after the game was over.
