Kevin Durant on Monday (AEST) became one of just four players in NBA history to average at least 40 points, five rebounds and five assists over a five-game span within one postseason.

Another of those players is Michael Jordan and that's exactly who came to mind when Golden State coach Steve Kerr was quizzed about Durant's outstanding form.

Asked after the Warriors' game one win over Houston if he's ever seen anyone have a stretch like Durant's current run, Kerr quipped: "There's this guy named Michael, something. Can't remember his last name."

Kerr, of course, played alongside Jordan in Chicago, where the Warriors coach won three of his five championships as a player.
