On the eve of their showdown against Oklahoma City, Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers gave high praise to 3-time scoring champion Kevin Durant.
“He’s already the single most difficult guy to defend” in the NBA.
“I’ve said that for three years,” Rivers said Tuesday, on the eve of his team’s showdown with the Thunder in a game that could determine the top three seeds in the Western Conference playoffs. ” … and even when you defend him well, in most cases, he just missed the shot.
The Clippers are one game behind Oklahoma City for the second seed in the west.
