Kevin Durant scored 28 points in 42 minutes against the Spurs during a Game 1 win on Monday, adding seven rebounds, four assists, one block and one 3-pointer.
He was much better in this game even though Kawhi Leonard guarded him more in this game than on Saturday. Durant and Westbrook scored 57 of the 98 points and handed out 14 of the 16 assists in this game. This series is off until Friday, so the Thunder will have some confidence after they were blown out in Game 1. May 3 - 12:44 AM

Kevin Durant scored 16 points during an ugly loss to the Spurs on Saturday, adding eight rebounds, six assists and one turnover in 33 minutes.

It looked like he caught a break for this game with Kawhi Leonard guarding Russell Westbrook, but this was just a bloodbath. Considering how successful Kawhi on Westbrook worked out for the Spurs, it's likely going to continue. That bodes well for Durant to have some productive games in this series, especially if the Spurs will continue to put guys like Kyle Anderson on him. While he was disappointing against Dallas in the first round and in this one, expect him to be better in Game 2 on Monday.

Russell Westbrook said he'll always have Kevin Durant's back.

"He's always going to have my back and I'm always going to have his," Westbrook said. Just another wrinkle to throw into the mix of the Durant free agency saga. Durant called owner Mark Cuban an idiot for saying Westbrook isn't a superstar and also called Charlie Villanueva an idiot for trying to get in Westbrook's head. The two will kick off arguably the best series of the second round on Saturday when they travel to San Antonio.

Kevin Durant scored 33 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 41 minutes against the Mavs on Monday.

After a productive first round, it's going to get awfully tough against Kawhi Leonard and the Spurs in the next round. After this game, Durant was asked about owner Mark Cuban saying he is the only superstar on OKC. "He's an idiot," Durant said after he covered Russell Westbrook's microphone. Durant also called Charlie Villanueva an idiot for interrupting the Westbrook dance last week. KD is not nice after all.

Kevin Durant will not be suspended for Game 5 on Monday vs. Dallas.

He hit Justin Anderson in the face with his arm in Game 4, but it would've been very surprising if KD was suspended. Keep him locked into your lineups.

Kevin Durant was ejected for a flagrant 2 foul on Saturday with 51 seconds left in the game.

He hit Justin Anderson in the face with his arm, which usually results in a flagrant 1 and not a flagrant 2. The NBA might be looking at this for a suspension, but it was pretty clear it was not intentional and he should be fine. To be clear, a suspension would be a joke. Durant failed to score 20 points for the first time since his injury in November, finishing with 19 points, four rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer and one turnover.

According to Chris Mannix of The Vertical, the Celtics could be a "dark horse" to sign Kevin Durant this summer.

Mannix is a very credible reporter, and this would make some sense because the Celtics are built for the future with one of the best coaches in the NBA, a lot of young talent on the roster and a stockpile of draft picks. Mannix also said that the Warriors and Spurs will be in the mix, and obviously the Thunder will do everything in their power to bring KD back as well. For what it's worth, Washington no longer seems like a realistic destination even after the hiring of coach Scott Brooks. The summer of Durant is going to be a lot of fun.

Kevin Durant scored 34 points on 11-of-25 shooting in Thursday's 131-102 win over the Mavericks, giving the Thunder a 2-1 series lead.

After coming off the "toughest shooting night" of his career in which he hit just 7-of-33 shots in Game 2, KD got back on track tonight. He also hit 9-of-11 from the line, adding seven boards, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes. This is why you should never worry about Durant.
Apr 21 - 9:54 PM

Kevin Durant said he'll be better in Game 3 after hitting just 7-of-33 shots during Monday's Game 2 loss to Dallas.

"Toughest shooting night of my career," Durant said after the loss. "But that’s part of the game. I know it, I’m going to own up to it and I’ll be better." Durant is arguably the best in the league at putting the ball through the hoop, so we have no doubt that he'll bounce back in a big way on Thursday.

Kevin Durant had a nightmare performance during an 85-84 loss to the Mavs on Monday, making 7-of-33 from the field for 21 points with nine rebounds, two assists, one block, two 3-pointers and seven turnovers.

Yikes. Durant ended a whopping 42 possessions in this game with only 21 points to show for it. His 26 misses from the field are the most since Michael Jordan in 1997. He never missed more than 20 shots in the postseason during his career, so this was arguably his worst game ever. Expect a bounce-back game on Thursday.

Kevin Durant scored 23 points with five rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday.

The Mavs went small and coach Rick Carlisle probably learned his lesson on this one. Durant missed a number of open looks, so this could have been a bigger line. He also did not play in the final 16:43 of this game. DFS owners will need the Mavs to make some adjustments so KD can play in the fourth.
Apr 17 - 12:27 AM

Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka will all be rested for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

With all of OKC's primary weapons on the sidelines Tuesday night, there's going to be a ton of opportunity for guys like Enes Kanter, Randy Foye, Dion Waiters and Anthony Morrow with Kanter offering the most upside out of the group. Kyle Singler could draw the start in Durant's absence, but minutes rarely translate to production for Singler.

Kevin Durant scored 34 points against the Lakers on Monday with five rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and six 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

That is 64 consecutive games with at least 20 points. Durant would've scored 20 points in every game played this season if not for an injury back in November. It's going to be awfully tough on voters to choose All-NBA First Team at forward, but Durant certainly deserves it. He'll likely rest on Tuesday night in the finale.

Kevin Durant scored 31 points in Saturday's 112-114 loss to the Kings, adding eight assists, six boards and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

It was a meaningless game for the Thunder since they have already clinched the No. 3 seed in the West, so playing KD for 40 minutes was unusual. He did tweak his right ankle before halftime and had a slight limp, but he looked fine down the stretch. KD shot just 11-of-29 from the field and had five turnovers, but this was his 63rd game in a row with at least 20 points which ties Kobe Bryant for the longest streak since the 2005-06 season. The Thunder have a back-to-back set on Monday vs. the Lakers and Tuesday vs. the Spurs to close out their season, so don't be surprised if KD gets another night off.
Apr 10 - 1:20 AM

Kevin Durant is not expected to rest on Saturday against the Kings.

Oklahoma City is locked into their No. 3 seed, but they're fully expected to play their guys tonight. Durant gets a great matchup and could have a big game tonight.
