There was afternoon basketball on Sunday, with the Thunder tipping off in Toronto against the Raptors at 1 p.m. Eastern.
Toronto hosts more of these early starts than any team in the league, but it didn’t bother the Thunder as they improved their league-best record to 26-7 with a 104-92 victory.
Kevin Durant finished with 22 points on 6-of-11 shooting, and he made sure to have some fun along the way.
Late in the fourth quarter, Durant finds himself isolated on the perimeter with DeMar DeRozan defending. After putting the ball through his legs, he crosses DeRozan not once, but twice before exploding past him into the lane for the easy bucket.
The scariest part about Durant is that his overall game is getting stronger, and he’s becoming a more complete player with each passing season. The improvement in both his passing and ball-handling has been evident on a nightly basis, and DeRozan was simply the latest victim of Durant’s devastating skill set.
