With the Golden State Warriors punching an early ticket to the offseason after a pair of losses in the Western Conference play-in tournament, Warriors Wire is checking in on former members of Golden State across the 2021 edition of the NBA postseason.

In the opening round of the playoffs, Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant and Miami Heat forward Andre Iguodala lead a featured group of former Warriors trying to get back to the NBA Finals with new teams. Former Warriors DeMarcus Cousins, Alec Burks and JaVale McGee will also be in action during the 2021 playoffs.

Here is a look at how Durant performed during game four between the No. 2 seed Brooklyn Nets and No. 7 Boston Celtics.

Eastern Conference Round 1, Game 4: Nets (3-1) at Celtics:

After a 50 point explosion from Jayson Tatum in game three, the Boston Celtics had the chance to even the series against the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday. However, Kevin Durant had a different idea.

The former Golden State Warrior forward dropped 42 points on 14-of-20 shooting from the floor with five assists, four rebounds and two blocks in 40 minutes. Durant was perfect from beyond the arc, hitting a trio of triples on three attempts from deep.

Along with Durant’s explosive scoring effort, Kyrie Irving added 39 points on 11-of-24 shooting from the floor and James Harden tallied 23 points and 18 assists to charge the Nets past the Celtics, 141-126.
