Kevin Durant had it out for Kings rookie Marvin Bagley III in the first half of Thursday’s game.
The 10-time All-Star blocked five of Bagley’s shots in the first half (these could be subject to change upon further review as some may have been steals).
The rookie still managed to have success in the half as he scored 16 points on 6-of-14 shooting, but Durant was all over him for much of the game.

At least for Bagley, he didn’t get the treatment Buddy Hield did when Durant sent a lay-up on a fast break into the seats for his sixth block of the first 24 minutes.

Durant’s career high is seven blocks. He is averaging 1.1 on the season.
The five blocks on Bagley is the most he has ever had on a single player in his career.
