CHICAGO - After the Golden State Warriors made quick work of the Chicago Bulls, 149-124, on Monday night (Tuesday, Manila time) at the United Center, Kevin Durant sat in his assigned stall inside the visitors' locker room with ice bundled on both knees.
He took questions from a thick contingent of reporters credentialed for the game and raved about his team's performance, especially that of Klay Thompson, who lit up the Bulls for 52 points and set an NBA record with 14 three-pointers made, breaking the previous record of 13 held by teammate Steph Curry.
The 2014 NBA MVP, who scored a modest 14 points in the rout, also took time to talk briefly to SPIN.ph.
"Nothing but love for everybody in the Philippines," said the nine-time All-Star. "Appreciate all the love and support over the last 11 years I've been in the league."
.The 30-year old Durant, a nine-time All-Star and two-time NBA champ, visited Manila last July to promote his KD 11 shoe. He was impressed by the Pinoys' passion for the game and said "I can't wait to come back."
