They don’t call the man MVP for nothing. KEVIN DURANT shook off a rough start to Game 6 against the Clippers to drop 39 points, adding 16 rebounds and four assists as the Thunder completed another fourth quarter rally and dropped L.A. from the playoffs, 104-98…
Durant was en fuego turning an 0-for-5 start into 12-for-18 shooting to end the game, including five three-pointers as he joined LeBron James as the only NBA players with at least 35 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in a series-clinching victory.
“It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. I just tried to stick with it.”
No question. KD stuck with it alright. Dude stuck jay after jay in the Clippers’ grills. That’s what a closer is. That’s what a closer does.
Now the Thunder prepare for a date with the sizzling Spurs in the Western Conference Finals. You can’t ask for a better NBA Final Four than the four best teams in the league…and the league’s two best players competing.
Let’s get it!
