Kevin Durant with 24-point, 8-rebound first half

2 Comments

The focus in these NBA Finals has been on LeBron James‘ brilliance and on Stephen Curry‘s three-point explosion. Kevin Durant was getting overlooked, despite playing at a near Finals MVP level.

No longer — Durant had 24 points on 7-of-10 shooting, plus 8 rebounds in the first half.

Durant was doing stuff like this.

And this.

His shooting made up for a slow start from Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson (a combined 1-of-9 from three) and it was only a six-point Cavaliers lead at the half.
