Kevin Durant has done everything to help the Oklahoma City Thunder stay afloat since Russell Westbrook went down with a torn meniscus.
Durant most nights during these playoffs will lead the Thunder in scoring, assist, rebounds, steals, and anything else relevant.
The Thunder are down 2-1 to the Grizzlies and their backs are against the wall, but as Durant told ESPN, “he still can do more to help the Thunder win.”
“I can do a lot more. There’s always things. No matter how good you play, you always can do more,” said Durant, who has averaged 34 points, 10.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists and shot 50.6 percent from the field in the seven games Oklahoma City has played without Westbrook.
“I gotta find ways to help [my teammates] out and put them in great position. Continue to just be a vocal leader, a positive leader on the bench and every time down the court.”
Durant is averaging 9 more points, 5 more rebounds, and his field goal and three-point percentages have risen 10% since the Westbrook injury.
I’m not sure what more Durant can do. Serge Ibaka are you reading this?
