View Full Version : Durant leaves game with ankle injury in the midst of historic first half of scoring

Had 30 points in 18 minutes I think
Sure, the Oklahoma City Thunder are almost all the way back into the playoff picture in the West, but they can’t afford another injury if they have dreams of being anything but an eight seed.

So that video above is scary.

Kevin Durant drove the lane Thursday night against the Warriors and just rolled his ankle. It’s pretty nasty and he left the game not to return, however X-rays were negative and the team described the sprain as “mild,” reports Royce Young of ESPN. There is currently no estimate on how many games he might miss.

What sucks about this was Durant was having a legendary game — he had 30 first-half points on 10-of-13 shooting. We as fans were robbed of seeing what he might have done. http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/12/19/kevin-durant-turns-ankle-leaves-game-not-to-return-x-rays-negative/

It's crazy how he didn't even look like he was trying. His game is so smooth, I bet he will eventually break 70 points or more. What's Also crazy is remembering those days of kobe dropping 30 in 1 qtr, damn fun to watch.

Seriously, he looked insane. He starts off his scoring with some ridiculous baseline Euro step, and then all hell just broke loose. The pull up Iso/distance 3's on b2b2b possessions killed me. I don't know how the hell we were still up at half.
