Kevin Durant said he doesn't believe James Harden is "cheating" the game with how he plays.
"I wouldn't say that he has an advantage," Durant said. "I think everybody, once they get into the lane, they use little tricks to try to get their shots off. I don't think he's any different.
"He may bump guys off going to the rim, but everybody does that. I wouldn't say that he's found a way to ... cheat the rules. I wouldn't say that. I just think that he has his style of play. It might not be what everybody likes to see, but it's been effective. And I don't think he's been cheating the game at all."
Durant said Harden has "always been clever" at being able to get to the paint and putting pressure on the defense.
