The game was billed as the battle between “7 foot small forwards” – Giannis Antetokounmpo vs Kevin Durant – in Oklahoma on Tuesday night and the 2 freaks didn’t disappoint.
The Greak Freek, Antetokounmpo, won the individual statistic battle with 27 points and a team-high 10 rebounds but Kevin Durant got the W despite struggling from the field with 6 of 18 shooting. Durant still finished with 26 points (13 for 13 from the line) and dished out a team-high 8 assists as Westbrook scored 27, Enes Kanter had 23 and rookie Cameron Payne was huge scoring 16 points in 16 minutes.
Giannis’ also had a couple of teammates put up some big numbers: Khris Middleton went off for a career-high 36 and MCW was a board and dime away from a triple double.
