Tyreke Evans & Anthony Davis ruin Kevin Durant’s return
The reigning MVP looked pretty good in his return against the Pelicans, especially when he scored 10 of his team-high 27 in the 4th quarter, but it wasn’t enough to pull out a victory for the Thunder.
MVP leading candidate Anthony Davis had a vintage AK-47 line of 25 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists, 6 steals and 4 blocks and Tyreke Evans scored 15 of his 30 points in the 4th.
“I was just in a zone where I felt like I could get to the basket, to the rim, and nobody was going to stop me, so I just kept attacking,” Evans said.
After the game, KD talked about his performance and getting back into rhythm.
“I was confident in myself. I knew my wind wasn’t where I wanted it to be, obviously, but I felt good out there,” said Durant.
“I just got to keep putting together good days and I’ll keep getting back to where I want to be,” Durant said. “To get back to midseason form like I want to be is going to take some time. No excuses for me. I’m out there; I got to play hard as I can no matter what and I got to go out there and be the best leader and player I can be.”
