Kevin Durant going extra wild latelyPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Oklahoman reporting on Thunder forward Kevin Durant, who is simply going nuts on the court lately:
Want an idea of how unguardable Kevin Durant has been lately? Just take a look at the postgame quotes from Sixers coach Brett Brown. Durant went off for 32 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists, his fifth career triple-double. And an perplexed Brown had no answers postgame.
Brown: “I thought we did a pretty good job on him. We try, we get small guys chasing him around, denying him and fronting him, and we get everybody scared because he’s Kevin Durant, because he’s so long and scores in such a variety of ways. He is the NBA’s hardest player. He’s always been an incredibly difficult guard. I gameplanned back in my Spur days. How do you guard him? Is it Kawhi Leonard, Manu Ginobili, Bruce Bowen, whoever. I thought our guys, I thought James (Anderson) was great and you look down and he’s got a triple double.”
- Durant is now averaging 36.5 points, 6.4 rebounds and 6.2 assists in 13 January games.
- In his last five games, Durant has scored 198 points on 70-of-107 shooting (65 percent).
