The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing Kevin Durant to average 35.5 points, 13 rebounds and 7.5 assists over the first two games of their series against the Oklahoma city Thunder.

“We want to (cut off Durant’s supporting cast), but you still can’t let him get 50," said Lionel Hollins. "We want to make him work and take a lot of shots. We don’t want to put him on the free throw line. It takes a lot of energy to be an offensive player, regardless of what people think, especially when you have the ball in your hand the majority of the time. We want to work him on that end and work him on the defensive end. We want to run and make him play the entire game.”

Its hard when the refs call fouls for just breathing on him.

Impossible. Durant pays rent for his free throws

^ Two posts above couldn't be more accurate. Most of the time Durant's skinny frame is used to his advantage. He probably gets more BS calls than LeBron even because of that. One little touch or bump can knock him off or move him easier and I love KD's game, don't get me wrong, just sometimes the over-kissing ass & caressing from the zebras irks me a bit.

He's been putting up insane numbers in these playoffs, we can't forget this dude is basically playing on a team where kevin martin is his second option. If he struggles the thunder have NO chance
