The Golden State Warriors were blown out by the Houston Rockets in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals.
Kevin Durant was asked if he was shocked to experience that type of loss for the first time in the playoffs since joining the Warriors.
“No, (expletive) happens,” Durant said. “We’re not invincible. We’re not the juggernauts of the NBA. We’re a good team, but that’s a great team on the other end as well.
“That’s the beauty of the game, man. Some games, you’re going to get knocked out. Some games, you’re going to get punched in the face. How you respond, that’s the beauty of it. They played great tonight and we’ll see how we respond next game.”
“We got outplayed the whole game,” Steve Kerr said. “We’re playing a team that won 65 games. They’re damn good. We got it handed to us.
“You can look at it any way you want and parcel it out into different shifts and rotations and all that stuff, but it didn’t matter who we had out there tonight. We got beat.”
