Before heading out of town for a grueling five-game road trip, it looked like the Golden State Warriors were going to be traveling with a bad loss hanging over their heads.

The Orlando Magic blitzed the Warriors with a 39-point second quarter and took a commanding 64-47 lead at halftime on Monday night.

Oracle Arena was dead. The Warriors were lethargic to say the least. However, the hate the two-time champs have for losing willed them to a thrilling 116-110 win over the Magic.

Kevin Durant led the way with a truly special performance, dropping 49 points to go along with nine assists, six rebounds, two steals and two game-changing blocks.

This chase-down block with the Warriors changed the complexion of the game.

No need to wipe your eyes. It was ugly, and the Magic were on the verge of making the Warriors’ pass the sticks and call it a night. But after that block by Durant, the champs, minus Steph Curry and Draymond Green, outscored the Magic 58-34 the rest of the way.

Wow. What you say, KD?

Funny stuff as Durant and the Warriors are back to playing with joy. How about the dagger he hit the Magic with to end their hopes of pulling off the upset at Oracle?

Special stuff from a special basketball player, but Durant received help in the fourth quarter from Klay Thompson. Thompson was struggling up until then. Then he went en fuego, tyring a career-high in the regular season with 19 fourth quarter points.

Kerr was pleased with their efforts.

Durant nearly became the third Warrior to drop 50 in a game. Instead, he’ll have to settle for scoring 125 points in the last three games.

What a night at Oracle as the Warriors head to Toronto feeling good, thanks to the man they call Easy Money Sniper.
