Kevin Durant Calls Loss to Spurs ‘A Slap in the Face’


Golden State’s reserves completed the season-opening 129-100 loss in front of mostly vacant seats at Oracle Arena.

Outside of (Kevin) Durant (27 points), Stephen Curry (26 points) and Draymond Green (18 points), Golden State totaled 29 points on 13-for-35 shooting. It didn’t seriously challenge after giving up a big run to close the first half, and most of Oracle Arena had emptied by midway through the fourth quarter.

“It’s a slap in the face,” Durant said. “It woke us up a bit, and we look forward to getting better.”
