Kevin Durant confirms he changed a couple plays in the huddle tonight to get a Steph Curry iso: “He had a mismatch and he was making shots over everyone tonight. Why even run plays?” pic.twitter.com/Kn8k0nAXp7

KD added 28 points for the Dubs.
Per the AP:
“We just couldn’t get Curry under control,” Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said. “He was brilliant tonight.”
Curry’s 11 3s were the most ever by a Mavericks opponent. The last one was his most important, snapping a 114-all tie with 42 seconds to play. Both Curry and Warriors coach Steve Kerr credited Kevin Durant for switching play calls to get Curry shots rather than taking shots of his own.
“That was just (Durant) taking the initiative, knowing that I had a hot hand going,” Curry said. “Call it a decoy in terms of him being in the action, but allowing me to work. The way they were defending us, it just made sense tonight.”
