Kevin Durant returned to the Thunder starting lineup with an impressive 26 points and a season-high 17 rebounds after sitting out the previous game due to a sprained right big toe. Helping OKC to cruise to a win over Memphis.
“I missed some good shots in the first half,” Durant said. “I came back in the second half and I told myself every shot has to be — just — I have to focus on every shot now because I missed so many early on. It could have been a 2-for-17 night for me, so I tried to turn it into something good in the second half. Our training staff did a great job the last few days,” he said. “I’m just happy to be back playing.”
