Kevin Durant was amazing last night. His line, 36 points (on 24 shots), 10 boards, 3 assists, 3 blocks, 2 steals, was impressive. But his repeated clutch plays at the end of the game were eye-popping. A three to give the Thunder the lead for good. A leaning jumper as the shot clock expired to extend the lead. Clutch free throws. A shot block and a key rebound.
He did all of this despite being exhausted (he logged 44 minutes and playing the entire second half).
Durant and James Harden owned the 4th quarter and the Thunder won a game in which they were clearly outplayed in the first 36 minutes.
Not sure what KD will have in the tank for tonight's game in San Antonio, but Mrs. Angus and I really enjoyed watching him play last night.
By the way, have you seen Durant's latest commercial?
