No team has allowed fewer opposing players to reach 30 points than the Milwaukee Bucks, and Kevin Durant's third-lowest career average is against them. The Bucks and Durant's Oklahoma City Thunder also lead the NBA in blocks as they meet for the first time Saturday night in Milwaukee. Only six times has a player scored 30 in a game this season against Milwaukee (35-36), which joins Indiana and San Antonio as teams to allow that few 30-point performances. Now the Bucks will get their first look this season at Durant, averaging a league-best 28.3 points. The superstar, however, has averaged 23.3 points against Milwaukee in eight games. Durant enters off a spectacular 36-point effort on 13-of-19 shooting in Friday's 101-93 loss at Minnesota. The Thunder's lead over Denver in the Northwest Division was cut to 3 12 games and they fell 2 12 games behind San Antonio for the Western Conference's best record. "We'll be fine," Durant said. "You kno...

State of the Thunder: Beating up on bad teams

Kevin Durant called last week's game at Orlando a "Must win." Kind of strange, considering it was May. Stranger that it was Orlando. But the stranger thing is Durant may have been right. While the time and the place for the comment seems premature and out of line, the fact is the Thunder have to win against Orlando and the rest of the bottom feeders of the league...

We're talking about Kevin Durant...

The problem with the Thunder's method

When the Magic hired Rob Hennigan, they made no hiding the fact that the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs are their models. With the Thunder in town last week, there was glowing praise for Hennigan as a talent evaluator and for what he is beginning to build in Orlando. The top two seeds in the Western Conference are solid models for the organization. They are both...
