The top two teams in the NBA faced off against each other in LA on Tuesday night. The Oklahoma City Thunder took on the Clippers in a battle to maintain their half a game lead over the Clippers for the top spot in the L. The outcome, a Thunder win. The cherry on the sundae, a fourth quarter dunk by KD where he crossed over Matt Barnes to put the Thunder up 101-85.
Durant finished the night with 32 points, 7 assists and 7 rebounds. Check the dunk.
The Clippers were without point guard Chris Paul who was on the bench with a bruised kneecap. I like watching these two teams play and was a little sad that they didn’t end up matching up against each other last season in the playoffs. I look forward to that happening this year. Hopefully in the Western Conference finals.

BEST OF MAXIM
Kevin Durant takes Matt Barnes one-on-one and finishes with the HUGE flush. Durant’s big jam came during the 4th quarter of Tuesday night’s game and put the Thunder up 101-85 at Staples Center, as they were in total control over the Clippers and would eventually walk away with the 109-97 win against a strong Western Conference foe. Durant finished with 32 points, 7 assists and...
Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma Thunder was on fire down the stretch of his team’s match-up against the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night. One of the highlights was a monster dunk that he threw down on Lamar Odom. Check out KD just demolish Odom’s soul on the slam. We would be doing a disservice to Durant’s handles if we didn’t mention the nasty crossover he pulled off...
Kevin Durant owned the fourth quarter and was in complete takeover mode on Tuesday night vs. the Clippers, evidenced by this thunderous dunk over Lamar Odom. KD is not nice:
What’s an NBA player to do away with a few days off before facing a Los Angeles opponent? Party, of course. After Sunday’s OT loss to the Nuggets, Thunder teammates, Kevin Durant & Russell Westbrook touched down in LA and hit up GreyStone Manor in West Hollywood:
Kevin Durant: Prettyyyyy, prettyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, pretty good at basketball.
On Tuesday night at Staples Center, the NBA's leading scorer dropped 32 points on the Clippers in the Thunder's 109-97 win. 24 of Durant's 32 points came in the second half, with two of those 24 coming on this awesome dunk over Lamar Odom:
Nice crossover on Matt Barnes, too.

Cleveland Cavaliers star point guard Kyrie Irving has missed a lot of games this season due to injury but his play is All Star caliber. In a recent game against the Boston Celtics Irving had a monster game with 40 points.
Irving shot a crazy 16 of 24 from the field and he was also 7 of 7 from the free throw line. Irving also made 1 three pointer in his 40 point game. He also showed...
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Coming off a loss two nights earlier in Denver, the Oklahoma City Thunder were more interested in bouncing back with a win than making any statements against the Clippers.
Kevin Durant scored 32 points, Russell Westbrook added 26 and the Thunder won 109-97 on Tuesday night in a matchup of teams with the two best records in the NBA.

Unfortunately, Chris Paul’s absence leaves us with not much to take away from Tuesday night’s feature matchup between the West-leading Thunder and second-place Clippers. Thankfully, however, Kevin Durant was so kind as to make the event very much worth watching. Hopefully you didn’t give up on him at halftime, when he only had eight points, because he finished with an impressive...

Kevin Durant isnt quite LeBron, but hes closer than ever. And today, the Thunder are the best team in the league because of it.
How was your Tuesday night? Not as good as Floyd Mayweather’s. Money decided to head down to the Staples Center for some NBA action between the Clippers and Thunder and obviously landed courtside seats to take in the action.
He placed a few casual bets last night to make the game a little more excited, since apparently Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook just isn’t...

Yesterday, we started off a new series in the WFNY Stats & Info column. Today, I follow up on some of the same themes.
After looking at breakdown of the Cavs relatively improved play in their last 15 games, I couldn’t resist looking into how it compared to the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2008-09. As I wrote at great length in The Diff on Wednesday, that was Kevin Durant’s second...
