Warriors still piling up blocks without Kevin Durant

HOUSTON — While many analysts wondered how the Warriors would replace Kevin Durant’s scoring, head coach Steve Kerr was just as concerned with whether his team could fill Durant’s void defensively. Before sustaining a left knee injury Feb. 28 at Washington, Durant was the biggest reason Golden State’s interior defense hadn’t regressed without Andrew Bogut and Festus Ezeli. Durant, who was swatting a career-best 1.6 shots per game, anchored a team that led the league in blocks.

Lue considered a loss at Miami in which LeBron James and Kyrie Irving sat out and even his own illness that forced him to miss a game and three shootarounds.“It’s been kind of funky,” Lue said before the Cavs took on the Orlando Magic Saturday night at Amway Center. “There’s nothing to look...
