42 points Durant, 39 Lebron. Enough said.And dont tell me it isn his fault.If he is our best defender besides Dwight he should limit them.There is no way you can stop them, but limit them.

No one can guard those two even if you trade who will?

There's no stopping Durant and Lebron.

I don't think anyone wants Metta and his contract either.

I don't understand people that keep using the "nobody can stop them" argument.

While true, he's allowing way above average numbers to these guys. At that point, he's pretty much a non-factor on defense.

Durant and Lebron had their season high in points against LA. That means something.

How much time did the other players spend on Lebron, like Clark or someone else.

Partly on him, but our help defense isn't always there either.

He is getting away with it having one or sometimes two efforts on D when the crowd goes wild.

That's it though. He seems to always need help on his man because he can't stay in front of him. A true stopper wouldn't need help often.

He's not the defensive stopper he was. I thought we had established this by now.

Also it's not just Metta. This team, collectively, struggles at the defensive end.
