The Golden State Warriors may have come out on top in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets last night, but not everyone on the team is happy with the way which the team performed.
The Warriors achieved a 119-106 win against the Rockets on Monday night at the Toyota Center in Houston, taking a 1-0 lead in their series, and another step closer towards making their fourth consecutive NBA Finals appearance.
Kevin Durant was the best performer on the court for Golden State, as he finished with 37 points, three rebounds, and an assist on the night after 40 minutes of action. He arguably could have had more as he was taken out of the game late in the third quarter.
Despite the impressive win over the number one seeded team in the Western Conference and the best team this season in the NBA, Durant wasn't satisfied with how the Warriors performed, as he doesn't think his team is playing their best basketball yet.
The forward said after the game to NBA TV: “I don’t know if we’re at our peak. I think we could be better. Stakes are high, we’re playing in the Western Conference Finals against the best team in the league, No. 1 seed, and MVP on their team.”
Durant can be proud of the way he performed on Monday night, but arguably, he's right in saying the rest of his team need to step up their game for the rest of the series.
