Durant needs to stop getting dunked on lol, that's two games in a row that Nene has postered him. :laughing:

You can never count the Nuggets out of the game though, not when you have so many good scorers on the team. Wilson Chandler is locking Durant down.

Man, I don't know what you're supposed to do with Durant. The guy is so tall and is just a ruthless offensive player.

When he's on fire he's one of the most unstoppable scorers I've ever seen. Like dirk with speed.

However he is a settler and he does really limit himself to junpshooting when in reality he could be as lethal as lebron going towards the basket

Great no-call on the Durant inbounds play. The rules clearly state that, after a timeout, you can go backcourt to receive the inbounds pass, and they also state that both feet need to cross the line (into the frontcourt) before a player can be called for a backcourt. Durant's left foot never established position in the frontcourt, and the first time he hit the line, he caught the ball at the same time.

Simple call to make using the replay.

I wanted to see this go at least 6 and it should have. Denver missed the ft's again.

For those still disputing the call: ball and both feet have to be established back in the frontcourt, then go backcourt. not just one foot.

If I understand the rule, this is what's interesting: if KD hadn't stepped on the line the 1st time, the 2nd time would've been a violation.

I don't know about that. I think Durant screwed them up. The Thunder were already up one when that no-call happened, and Durant had already dominated them with seven consecutive points to take the lead.
