Nick Collison: When Kevin Durant and I combine for 57 points, Thunder win


The Oklahoma City Thunder got a big win over the Golden State Warriors on Friday night. Power forward Nick Collison of the Thunder knows exactly the reason for the win, him and Kevin Durant combining for 57 points.

If you didn’t watch the game, it is humorous because Durant scored 54 points and Collison scored three. But it is refreshing to see an NBA player have a sense of humor. Of course Collison took 27 less shots than Durant and all three of his points came from the line.

“As a leader, my main objective is to serve my teammates, help them out,” Durant said after the game, via ESPN. “Some nights, I’ve got to put it up, I’ve got to score. Some nights, I’ve got to do other things. Tonight, they found me and I was able to hit a few shots. I just tried to do as best as I can to lead the team and lead us to victory.”
