The next most expensive Conference Final was $769, when the Warriors met the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2016.
Stephen Curry led Golden State with 28 points, eight assists and seven rebounds, and was one of five Warriors scoring in double digits.
Durant also spoke about the tough challenge the Houston Rockets will present during the Western Conference Finals.
A ticket to see the Warriors at home in the West Finals has the highest asking price of the decade - $976 - while a ticket to see the Rockets at home ranks second at $957. It's hard to argue that Houston isn't a better team at this point in the season compared to when they played early-on as well, considering each matchup fell before February even rolled around.
This is a stunning indictment.
As well as advancing to the Conference Finals for the first time in his career, according to ESPN, the Rockets point guard now joins the legendary Chicago Bulls star as the only two players throughout National Basketball Association history to have accomplished a certain feat. During Game 5 last night, GS forward Draymond Green successfully eavesdropped on a Pelicans huddle and mostly got away with it.
On one side, you have three Warriors All-Stars who are now four years into this dominating run with Curry, Thompson and Green.
This development speaks volumes about how this Warriors team is viewed right now. Durant was impressed with Kerr's handling of Curry before he was unleashed for 37 minutes in Game 5 when they wrapped up the series against the Pelicans.
Houston won two of three meetings against the Warriors during the regular season but was still installed as an underdog at +155, meaning a $100 bet would win $155 should the Rockets win.

Jason Day takes control at Wells Fargo Championship
Wise played the three hole stretch at even par while Day went 2 under on the Green Mile with birdies on 16 and 17. They have not been in the same group at the Players Championship since 2001.
Stage 3 finish line quotes
Italy's Elia Viviani sprinted to victory for a second successive day at the Giro d'Italia as the Big Start in Israel concluded. We're heading to Italy with two stage wins, the ciclamino points jersey and the best young rider's jersey with Max Schachmann.
The assessment made here with this Westgate posting is that had the Warriors been healthy all season, they'd have certainly been the top seed in the Western Conference.
And the talking will most definitely continue over the next few days. Pretty forgettable. The Warriors were massive favorites and played like it.
"I just try to stay in the moment".
65 wins is a stunning total. They went 34-7 at home during the regular season. Rubio missed every game because of a hamstring injury. "Know what I'm saying?" "He went out there and took over the game". Playing at home, give the Rockets a slim edge here.
"No, they earned the respect this year". Clint Capela had just 5 points and only two shot attempts. Teamed with James Harden in Houston this season, Paul let someone else quarterback the squad.
Although I think the Warriors will end up prevailing over the Rockets in this series, it's most likely going to be tightly contested.
"At one point, I think we realized that we had to turn this thing around", added Rubio.
The Western Conference has consistently outpaced the Eastern Conference in demand.
Whenever it started, however it started, it's clear that this is the series that the NBA-watching world wanted.
