Durant scored 25 of his points in the fourth quarter, where the Warriors outscored the Knicks, 47-16. After three quarters, the Knicks held a three-point lead over the two-time defending NBA Champs, who are now 5-1, which is good for the top spot in the Western Conference.
The former Finals MVP shot 10-of-13 in the fourth quarter alone, helping the Warriors make 19 of their final 26 shots in the win. Durant was 17-of-24 overall from the floor, including 5-of-9 from three-point range, while Steph Curry contributed 29 points and six three-pointers, coming off a 50-points night in a win over the Washington Wizards. He was playing in the same building that he had a career-high 54 points in February of 2013.
Tim Hardaway Jr. led the Knicks again with 24 points, but New York has dropped five straight games after a season-opening win over the Atlanta Hawks. They did jump out to an early six-point lead, but Curry would go on to make his first five shots to help avoid the Knicks pulling away.
Draymond Green added 18 points on the night for the Warriors, who are 2-1 away from Oracle Arena this season. They will stay on the road to battle the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday. Meanwhile, the 1-5 Knicks will host that same Nets team on Monday night.
