Forget Kevin Durant not being nice. I’m not so sure he’s actually part of our species anymore.
A night after carrying the Thunder to a gritty win in Portland, KD played 43 minutes tonight in Phoenix, scored 41 points, had five rebounds, two assists, two blocks, no turnovers and one murder. Because he murdered Marcin Gortat. I think we can all agree: Kevin Durant appears to be unfriendly while basketballing on the basketball court.
The Thunder beat the Suns 102-90 tonight completing a really nice back-to-back sweep, which was impressive. Also impressive: To go with Durant’s 41, Russell Westbrook added 36, meaning OKC’s superduo combined for 77 of the Thunder’s 102. Oh, let me top that: The Thunder scored 51 points in the second half. Westbrook and Durant combined for 47 of those points.
Westbrook and Durant overall, combined: 77 points on 29-54 shooting, 13 rebounds, seven assists and one turnover.
