Kevin Durant went for 29 points and Draymond Green produced yet another near triple double, as the Warriors racked up their sixth consecutive win on Saturday night, 135-112, over the 76ers.

In the comfortable win, Green had 10 points, 10 rebounds, seven rebounds, five blocks and two assists. Stephen Curry, who like Durant rested for the fourth quarter, scored 22.

Kevon Looney, who continues to be one of the surprises of 2017, produced yet another defensive highlight, blocking Ben Simmons, in resounding fashion, just before the break.

Looney closed the game with three blocks anf four points.

With 2:28 to go in the first, Kevin Durant were both assessed technicals for exchaning not-so-polite pleasantries after the young Sixer had aggressively fouled the Finals MVP on a dunk attempt:

On the following possession, JaVale McGee, who ended with eight points in seven minutes, grabbed a steal and then threw down the hammer as Embiid, wanting no part of getting dunked on, ducked for cover.
