Kevin Durant is good.
Not only have we’ve seen him dazzle us with his amazing scoring ability, but he has expanded his game in the last few seasons. Durant can handle the ball, pass, rebound, and pretty much do it all. He recorded his first triple-double last season, and that was a testament to how he has really grown in terms of his skill-set.
When Durant grabs a rebound and takes it coast to coast for a slam, teams can only watch and wonder how that’s fair. On Sunday night, Durant’s skills were on full display in a tough game against the Wolves. Minnesota controlled most of the game, as they held a double-digit lead for most of this one. Heading into the 4th quarter, the Wolves were up 83-78, and that’s when Durant and the Thunder took control.
They went on an 8-0 run to start the quarter, and didn’t look back. Kevin Durant ended up with 32 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds. Russell Westbrook had 19, but the spotlight was all on Durant. He is looking like a true MVP candidate this season, and the Thunder look strong. Durant may not be as good as LeBron, but he sure is close. The Thunder won 113-103, and moved to 9-0 at home this season.
