Found April 30, 2013 on That NBA Lottery Pick:
In the annals of NBA history, there are few players that have the grace of Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant and earlier tonight, he showed off his aerial exploits to the fine folks in Houston. Late in the fourth quarter of Rockets/Thunder game four, Durant crossed over Chandler Parsons and split the Rockets defense to throw down a nasty one-handed dunk:

Durant must channel inner Dirk to win title

The shocking news of Russell Westbrook’s knee injury last week rapidly redefined the entire NBA playoff picture. Without their second leading scorer and leading assist maker, many experts predict the Oklahoma City Thunder losing in the second round to the winner of the Clippers-Grizzlies series. Quite a revelation considering the Thunder were a lock for the NBA Finals no more than...

Kevin Durant leaps into the stands against Rockets, makes incredible save

There are many things that you can say about Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant but not giving 100% effort at all times is not one of them.

Kevin Durant gets lucky roll on big 3-pointer (Video)

An incredibly lucky roll was the difference between the Houston Rockets being in their series with the Oklahoma City Thunder instead of on the verge of elimination. Houston came back from a 26-point deficit in the second quarter of Game 3 to take the lead in the fourth. They were up 99-97 in the final minute before Kevin Durant made a 3-pointer that hit nearly every part of the...

Kevin Durant Going for a Little Pay Back for Russell Westbrook?

You hate to think that any player in the NBA would be callas and childish enough to try to get revenge for what they perceive as a dirty play that resulted in an injury to a teammate, but it happens all the time (right MLB?). Whether or not it happened Saturday night in a rough Game Three between the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder we will never know for sure, but...

Kevin Durant says it’s Fun Playing Without Russell Westbrook

    The notion during their tenure of playing together has always been that Russell Westbrook takes shots away from Kevin Durant. Westbrook is the most explosive point guard in the game, but has a tendency to take some ill-timed shots that many feel would be better served being taken by one of the best shooters in the game. So when Russell Westbrook was announced out for the playoffs...

Thunder prove they can still win without Westbrook

Because even when Kevin Durant misses, it goes in. Because Reggie Jackson can make a couple clutch free throws. Because Durant can score 41 if that's what it takes. That's why the Oklahoma City Thunder don't need Russell Westbrook to beat the Houston Rockets. Without their all-world point guard, who is out with a knee injury sustained in game two, the Thunder on Saturday...

Hack and Lose

Fear The Beard I don't mean to overreact to this, because it's just one first round playoff game between two teams that won't likely advance past the second round, due to injuries and inexperience. There's a very real chance that no one will think very much about this later, and that I'm just dealing with the ugly visual of a Game Five loss at home, in a series...

Thunder vs. Rockets highlights: KD’s dunk and Serge Ibaka’s blown lay-up

The Houston Rockets managed to hold off Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder in an elimination game Monday night.
