Durant Warns: Team USA Won’t Win By Lots of Points


After Team USA’s close call against Serbia, I wrote that maybe it was time to change expectations. Clearly, Kevin Durant feels the same way. After the U.S. struggled to get past France Sunday, the Golden State Warriors’ newest superstar addition said not to anticipate any crazy point margins for the Americans in these Olympics.

“Obviously, everybody wants us to win by a lot of points, but it’s not how it’s going to go this time,” U.S. forward Kevin Durant said. “We’ve got to be prepared for a grind-out game. We’ve showed the last three games we can grind it out.”
