For 9 minutes, the MVP of the league was scoreless and then he scored 39 points in the next 35 minutes as the Thunder eliminated the Clippers in GM6 with a 104-98 win. Durant also grabbed 12 of his season-high 16 rebounds in the 2nd half.
Westbrook struggled with his shot but still finished with 19 points (11-12 ft) and dished out 12 assists.
“Experience has helped us out a lot, just being with each other for so long,” Durant said. “We’ve got a long ways to go. We definitely can get better. This is definitely a series that pushed us to the brink. We were in a tough spot. We stayed together and persevered.”
