Durant grabbed five rebounds and had seven assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +8 in his 37:38 on the floor. He added four blocks. Durant went 2 of 5 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Durant would have had two more, but his potential game-winning baseline jumper was ruled to have come just after the final buzzer sounded. The four-time scoring champion also had eight turnovers in what should be considered a slightly disappointing season debut by his standards.

Analysis: The deal calls for about $25 million in the first year with a player option for the second season. It represents a significant giveback for the NBA Finals MVP, who could have signed a max deal that would have paid him millions more next season. The concession from Durant gave the Warriors enough room to lock up Steph Curry to a max contract and bring back Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston.
