“He came out aggressive. He came out like he never lost a step,” Westbrook said of Kevin Durant who scored 44 points in an OT win vs the Suns. “It was a good win for us tonight. We did a good job of sticking together.”
KD also had 10 rebound and 7 assists in his return from an ankle injury.
“It felt good. My teammates were running plays for me and getting me open shots,” Durant said. “I just tried to finish for them. My shots felt good and that win felt better.”
He hit 13 of 23 shots, 12 of 12 from the free throw line and 6 of 11 from downtown.
“You know, I didn’t even realize he had 44 points,” Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks said. “That just tells you what kind of a leader he is. He just kept everybody in the right place mentally and on the court.”
