I thought Durant was having a ho-hum sub-par game by his standards. Then, I think after either a jumper or that driving layup to start the fourth when the announcers said Durant had another 30 point game, I had to check the boxscore for myself. He just took over and killed Phoenix in the fourth. Westbrook did the same in the third.
Westbrook had 36 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals, 1 turnover, on 14/24 shooting. That was his best game of the season.
