Kevin Durant got red hot down the stretch and finished with 41 points on 14-of-25 shooting (3-of-9 3PTs, 10-of-13 FTs) with five rebounds, four assists and one steal in the Thunder’s 111-97 Game 4 win over the Spurs on Sunday.
Durant went into NBA Jam mode and he did a lot of it against a Kawhi Leonard, who to date hasn’t hit the injury report for a weird shot he took to the knee midway through the second half. The point is — Durant lived up to all the billing and saved the Thunder’s season and maybe even his own future in OKC.
Russell Westbrook trended more toward bad Westbrook, which is still better than most point guards in the league, but hit just 5-of-18 field goals for 14 points, seven boards, 15 assists and three steals. Tony Parker had his number all night. Steven Adams is one of the Thunder’s best players and finished with 16 points, 11 boards and two blocks. Serge Ibaka needs to play less and he finished with just seven points, one rebound and one block in 28 minutes.
