The Golden State Warriors' renowned "Hamptons 5" lineup (Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green) isn't going to bat 1,000 all the time, and in a 22-point loss to the Houston Rockets in Game 2 on Wednesday night, the fearsome five were clearly off their game.
Durant was the only member consistently knocking down shots at the Toyota Center, with the lineup as a whole finishing with a plus-minus rating of minus-18. Such poor production doesn't necessarily surprise the former Most Valuable Player, though. As formidable as the lineup is, he knows they're not impervious to cold streaks.
"No, shit happens," said Durant to The Athletic's Tim Kawakami. "We're not invincible. We're not the juggernauts of the NBA. We're a good team, but that's a great team on the other end, as well.
"That's the beauty of the game, man. Some games you're going to get knocked out. Some games you're going to get punched in the face. How you respond, that's the beauty of it."
Durant led all scorers with 38 points, which is more than his four teammates had combined (35).
