Last night, Kevin Durant and Russel Westbrook combined for 91 points. I don’t know what catchy catchphrase I can use for that. Alright, I’ll just say this – they lead the Thunder to a 124- 118 win.
Now, let’s be honest – we kind of forgot about the Thunder. There was Linsanity, the Bulls, the Heat, the Knicks, the Clippers and the Wizards (just kidding about that last one), and they have all gotten our undivided attention this year.
But, now we see the Thunder again. And while I’m pretty sure they aren’t going to be putting on those performances all season long, I have a feeling they could go all the way.
If a few guys can step up, they would be able to take a little pressure off of Westbrook and Durant, resulting in a more balanced game, which puts them in contention for the Larry O’ Brien trophy.
I’m not saying teams like the Heat, Lakers, Bulls and Clippers won’t get in their way. But, with a little work, these guys could win it all.
