"You ask my teammates, my coaches, you rile up the fanbase about it. Let us play basketball, that's all I'm saying". The Spurs earned a victory in the last meeting between these two teams on November 18.

Here are five observations from the Warriors' 141-102 win over the Spurs in Oracle Arena on Wednesday night, overshadowed by a press conference. GS has won 13 of its last 14 games to remain in control of the Western Conference standings. Patty Mills scored 16 points with four 3s for San Antonio in the first game of a back-to-back.

As usual, Stephen Curry did his part by delivering 19 points while DeMarcus Cousins added 15 points in 17 minutes.Absolutely, the high-powered offense of the Warriors evidently smothered the Spurs.

The Warriors played a tribute video of Smith's contributions toward the fight against racism and injustice and presented the trailblazer with a Warriors' jersey: No. 68, to commemorate the year of his then-controversial silent protest, which Smith refers to as "a cry for freedom". Now when I don't want to talk to [the media] it's a problem with me.

Eventually, Durant was asked about how his and the Warriors' form. He directly targeted The Athletic's Ethan Strauss regarding his article about the two-time National Basketball Association champion's "presumed exit" from the Warriors this summer.

The two-time NBA Finals MVP had not spoken to the media in the days leading up to Wednesday's game against the Spurs and when questioned as why that was - Durant was clear that it was just not his wish - and if it was due to questions regarding free agency, he seemed to get quite incensed.

I just wanna play ball. "Come on man, grow up".

Durant was right in the middle of the impressive display, and then took a few more shots after the game was over.

"What's the problem? What am I doing to you all?"
