Kevin Durant on Seth Curry saying Warriors harder to guard without him originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com

Ever since Kevin Durant strained his right calf during the third quarter of Game 5 against the Rockets, the Warriors haven't lost.

So naturally, the national narrative has shifted to "The Warriors are better without Durant" and "The Warriors don't need Durant."

Portland Trail Blazers guard Seth Curry offered a different perspective, saying the Warriors are "harder to guard" without KD.

As you might imagine, Durant doesn't agree, and he voiced his opinion in the most Durant way possible: A comment on an Instagram post.

All Durant wrote in response to a graphic of Curry's quote was "Hell no."

Before Game 2 against the Blazers on Thursday, the younger Curry brother spoke to The Athletic and was asked about facing a Warriors team sans Durant.

"I think they are harder to guard [without Durant]," Seth told Sam Amick. "They move around faster when he's not out there. They're definitely not a better team, but they're harder to guard. Obviously, they play a different style of basketball when Steph and Klay [Thompson] are the focal points offensively, and we haven't played that team in a while."

Durant's teammate, Draymond Green, on Friday addressed the assertion that the Warriors are better without Durant, and was emphatic in his answer.

"That's idiotic," Green told The Athletic's Tim Kawakami. "It's very idiotic. I don't think there's one person in this locker room, one person in this organization that thinks that. And I know for damn sure that any idiot that does possibly [say] it don't believe it."

Without Durant, who likely will miss the entire Western Conference finals against the Blazers, the Warriors have a 2-0 lead as the series shifts to Portland for Game 3 on Saturday night.
