1. Kevin Durant is on the Brooklyn Nets

When all else fails, get the ball to Durant. He is perhaps the greatest offensive player in the world. His ability to score at ease is a threat to any player that has to guard him. He is an offensive monster, who has had three 50-point games this season.

When asked by reporters about potential play-in matches Durant’s only concern was actually playing the game, via CBSSports.

"“Who cares,” Durant recently told reporters when asked if he looks at the standings to chart potential postseason paths for the Nets. “Whoever we play, we play. I don’t care who we play. I don’t care that we’re in the play-in. Just tip the ball up. See what happens. It’s too stressful thinking about trying to dodge a team or lining up [against a certain team]. Just play the game. We’ll see what happens.”"

Durant lives for the big moments and will not back down, regardless of who the Nets are up against.

The play-in tournament begins April 12 and with a healthy Durant, the Nets have a good chance of making it out of the tournament and far into the playoffs.
