There are some things that you just don’t do as a basketball player — one of those things is going, basically, five-on-one. Unless, of course, you’re Kevin Durant.
Durant finished with 41 points on 15-of-25 shooting, including that hero ball game-winner against what appeared to be the entire Hawks defense. The win brings the Thunder winning-streak up to eight games. It was also the 11th straight game in which Durant scored at least 30 points, which is the most by any player in the league over the last 10 seasons.
KD on his game-winner: “I was going to pass it, then I saw I was in my spot and I just had to pull up.”
