Kevin Durant leads Warriors past Hawks 110-103

Kevin Durant never found his typical offensive flow and found it a little strange playing without fiery Draymond Green, even if they have yet to make up from all that went down a night earlier in Los Angeles.

Durant isn’t sharing any details.

“I’m going to keep that in house, that’s what we do here,” Durant said. “I'm not trying to give nobody no headlines. What happened, happened. We're trying to move on, we’re just trying to play basketball.”

Durant scored 29 points with a key jumper in the final minute, a day after a shouting episode on the bench with Green at least in part led to his teammate’s suspension Tuesday, and the undermanned Golden State Warriors held off the Atlanta Hawks 110-103.

Klay Thompson added 24 points as Splash Brother Stephen Curry missed his third straight game with a strained left groin. The two-time MVP shuffled and danced as he celebrated big plays from the bench.

Taurean Prince scored 22 points, making four 3-pointers and finishing 8 for 14 from the floor in the Hawks’ fifth straight loss and ninth in 10.

Durant led the way despite shooting 9 of 23 hours after the Warriors suspended All-Star Green for one game without pay for conduct detrimental to the team. He got into it with Durant on the bench at the end of regulation in a 121-116 overtime road loss to the Clippers and Green wasn’t even at the arena Tuesday.

Jonas Jerebko started in place of Green and had season bests of 14 points and 14 rebounds – “He was our MVP tonight,” coach Steve Kerr said – as the Warriors stayed unbeaten in the second game of a back-to-back this season.

Quinn Cook dished out six of Golden State’s 28 assists playing in Curry’s spot.

“I think we’re all professional. We all love each other. We’re with each other every day for nine months. Brothers are going to fight and brothers are going to get into it,” Cook said. “I think the biggest thing, we know the common goal, we know what's at stake. These guys have been great for a while. I think we’re all going to get past this and come together. It’s going to make us stronger.” (ESPN)
