Let's look at their stats in a comparable situations. Both played against big,tough defensive teams (Memphis and Indiana). Neither had a 2nd option (Westbrook was out,J.R. sucked).
Kevin Durant - 28.8 points on 42% shooting (36% for three) in 45.6 minutes
Carmelo Anthony - 28.5 points on 43% shooting (35% for three) in 38.8 minutes
Durant is a better all around player but he isn't efficient as people say. Those numbers would be even worse if he wasn't getting special treatment from the refs.
Whats up with this biased post? Durant is infinitely better than Melo, but like any player by themselves on an island...the dude got wore out trying to do everything, vs Melo only scores.
Durant had two bad shooting game, the rest of his game was very solid
Game 1 Durant....13-26 15 rebounds 6 assists.35 points
Game 2 11-21 11 rebounds 9 assists .....36 points
Game 3 9-19 11 rebounds 5 assists.....25 points
Game 4 10-27 7 rebounds 7 assists.......27 points
Game 5 5-21 8 rebounds 6 assists......21 points.
Didn't even mention the steals and blocks he gets.
And that was against a team that actually has an offensive gameplan and plays all around better defense.
Indiana is not on Memphis level....the situations are NOT comparable.
