Kevin Durant says the Warriors respect the Rockets, but they’re not solely focused on beating Houston.

In a story by ESPN’s Chris Haynes, Durant added that the Rockets are one of several teams (namely, Boston, Cleveland, San Antonio, OKC and Minnesota) that could potentially contend for a title.

“It’s no disrespect, but we’re not coming in every day saying we’re just thinking about Houston. We know how great they are.


“We know it’s a team that’s going to be contending for a title along with us and couple other teams. But we’re focusing on ourselves right now.” […]


“You’ve got San Antonio, you’ve got Houston, you’ve got Boston, you’ve got Cleveland obviously, you’ve got OKC, who I think it’s tough. They nice. You’ve got Minnesota.”
