Durant: No one can catch Spurs

Kevin DurantI had a chance to speak with Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant prior to tonight’s game and he had plenty to say about the San Antonio Spurs. 

Asked if anyone could catch the Spurs and their league-leading record, Durant doubted any team could catch them for the first seed in the playoffs.

“I don’t think anyone can catch them,” Durant said. “You’ve got to give these guys a lot of credit. They’re playing phenomenally.”

As for matching up with the Spurs tonight, the all-star forward realized his team had a challenge ahead.

“They’re a tough team to match up with. Our defenses are pretty similar but their chemistry is better,” Durant said. “We’re just going to try and stop them I guess. They’re a tough team, but these are the kinds of challenges we like.”
