I have said it a couple of times this week: He is the most capable basketball player on earth. He is one of the most skilled basketball players ever played the game There has never been anyone like him. Six [foot] -11, handles the ball, shoots 3 & # 39; s, passes, defends, he is just an incredible talent, and I think after we have lost Game 2 to Clippers, I think he just felt like he had to turn up and lift us up another level. That was exactly what he did. "

He scored 50 points on an effective 15-in-26 in clinching Game 6 victory over Los Angeles Clippers.
Durant continued his impressive run Sunday with 35 points in the 104-100 Game 1 victory over the Houston Rockets. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were quiet too much of the day, but Durant took over and carried the team to victory.
Durant averages 29.1 points per day. Play in his playoff career with two titles and two final MVPs. Unfortunately, he has a long way to go to Jordan, which averaged 33.4 points a year. Play on the road to six titles and six final MVPs.
