Quantcast 2013 NBA: Durant drops 54 on Warriors

 

Durant drops 54 on Warriors

Last night's game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Golden State Warriors is what professional basketball is all about. It was high scoring, fast paced, and a relatively close game throughout. 

And Kevin Durant scored 54 points, a career high, to lead the Thunder to a 127-121 win over the Warriors. He won the game virtually by himself, and was able to top an outstanding 12-19 three point shooting performance from the Splash Brothers. He was 19-28 from the field, showcasing all of the weapons in his arsenal, from a blow-by fast break dunk on Andre Iguodala, to consecutive, fully contested pull-up threes in the closing minutes of the game to push him over the 50 point mark. 

With Russell Westbrook out, Durant becomes the heavy favorite to win his fourth scoring title. He's averaging 36.8 points per game in January, and it's scary to think about what his numbers would be like if Westbrook didn't exist.

Durant added four rebounds, six assists, one block, and two steals to his 54 points, putting himself in an elite category:
