Kevin Durant really knows how to put on a show.
After taking Friday off due to a sprained right shoulder, Durant entered the court Saturday night against the Philadelphia 76ers to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder to their seventh straight win.
Durant had 32 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists in a 103-91 win over the 76ers.
Oh, and let’s not forget that Durant had his fifth career triple-double and it was the tenth straight game where he scored at least 30 points. The man was unstoppable.
Granted, they were playing the 76ers, but Durant is a force to be reckoned with.
Another player who put on a solid performance was Serge Ibaka. Ibaka and Durant combined for 57 points on 24-of-33 shooting with 25 rebounds and 6 blocks. Ibaka finished with 25 points, 11 rebounds and 5 blocks.
OKC was playing its third-straight road game and the 76ers showed early that they weren’t leaving without a fight. Nineteen offensive rebounds also helped keep them in the game. Early in the third quarter, the Sixers were able to shave OKC’s lead to four points. That was before Durant exploded and went on a 14-5 run and the Thunder never looked back.
With the win, OKC still sits atop the Western Conference with a record of 35-10.
