Kevin Durant Deserves Blame

Despite having an historically bad 4th quarter against the Rockets, the Golden State Warriors still had a chance to win the game, down 2 with the shot clock turned off. Kevin Durant took the ball up the court and instead of pulling up and attempting to win the game himself, he passed over to Klay Thompson who took a difficult, off-balance shot. 

Many fans and analysts are criticizing Steve Kerr for not taking a timeout and drawing up a play for his team. However, Ben Maller thinks that Durant deserves the blame. Durant is a former league MVP and it's these exact situations where you need to be able to trust your superstars to make the right decision...and he didn't.
