As Durant shot a 3-pointer, Aldridge was outside of his comfort zone on the perimeter and went to close out, but took an extra step that could have been dangerous. Was it a possible retribution move for what the Warriors did to Leonard? Durant doesn’t think so, as he downplayed the incident after the game. “Bigs are not used to being out on the perimeter and guarding guys on the perimeter. Their whole thing is giving you space so when you pull up they just contest. It’s just part of the game. Been happening forever since I’ve been in the league. I think bigs just try to contest shots and sometimes that stuff may happen but it’s not on purpose at all. You know LaMarcus he’s a stand up guy. He just plays the game the right way. It wasn’t anything more than that. It’s just a big out on the perimeter.”
