New York led by three after three quarters before Durant and the Warriors starting hitting from all over the floor, making 19 of 26 shots — and things went so well that on a rare long-range miss by Durant, the ball bounced all the way out behind the arc to a wide-open Stephen Curry, who made the 3-pointer.Asked what changed in the fourth quarter, when Golden State outscored New York 47-16, Knicks coach David Fizdale said: “Kevin Durant.”Curry added 29 points and six 3-pointers, giving him at least five in every game this season. But on the floor where he scored a career-best 54 points in 2013, his performance seemed almost quiet because of Durant.He finished 17 of 24 from the floor, including 5 of 9 from behind the arc — where one of the misses was a one-legged attempt.Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 24 points for the Knicks, who have dropped five in a row after a season-opening victory over Atlanta.ADVERTISEMENT Fizdale changed up his starting lineup, going with Hardaway, Frank Ntilikina, Noah Vonleh, Damyean Dotson and rookie Mitchell Robinson, and the group provided a 16-10 lead.But it was quickly wiped out mostly by Curry, who made his first five shots, with three of them behind the arc.Durant drew plenty of notice upon his arrival and a loud ovation when he was announced with the starting lineups. He can become a free agent after this season and Knicks fans hope he can speed up their rebuilding. A billboard urging him to come to New York popped up on a building near Madison Square Garden this week.Curry said it’s not a distraction, saying the Warriors have faced greater concerns during their run of three championships in the last four years.“The way he’s handled it, obviously letting his play speak for itself and not getting too wrapped up or involved in it, understanding we’ve got seven more months of this,” Curry said. “So we know how to keep distractions out of our locker room and just play basketball and enjoy what we do.”TIP-INSWarriors: Golden State visits the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday.

No matter who you are you need to be concerned, not just of the bombs, but just somebody shooting you,” adding it was a “dangerous time to be alive right now” in the U.S.Kerr’s father, Malcolm Kerr, a professor who served as president of the American University of Beirut, was shot and killed outside his office in the war-torn Lebanese capital in 1984.UP NEXTWarriors: Visit Brooklyn on Sunday.Knicks: Host Brooklyn on Monday.
