"Sub me out," said Kevin Durant after scoring his 30th point of the Warriors easy win over the Wizards, 144-122.

"I don't wanna play no more, man," Durant said. 

After asking Golden State head coach Steve Kerr to come out of the game with a 23-point lead early in the fourth quarter, Durant shook his head one more time and said of the visitors from Washington: "Weak." 

 

"One of my favorite moments is nobody challenged Kevin Durant as he, sort of, casually floated down the lane, and dunked one," Danny Rouhier said on 106.7 The Fan Thursday. "And he basically was like, 'Coach, just pull me out of the game. These guys are so bad. Just get me out of here, I'm going to go rest.'"

Washington was hurt by poor outside shooting, going just 12 of 42 from behind the arc. What else hurt the Wizards? Aside from the scoring of Durant, was the 51 points scored by Stephen Curry in only 3 quarters of play. 

"Kevin Durant scored 30 points in 32 minutes, and that performance had nothing on Steph Curry," Grant Paulsen said. "If he wanted to score 75 points last night he could have."

When asked what the Wizards could have done to stop Curry, Bradley Beal, who scored 23 points on 10-of-15 shooting, told the assembled media: “Probably foul the s--- out of him.”

 

The Wizards fell to 1-3 on the season.

"There's no shame in losing to the Warriors at home," Rouhier said. "I can't deal with you getting boat raced by Toronto when they rested Kawhi Leonard. That's what I can't deal with. That's the one that bothers me."
