Kevin Durant Says Game vs Orlando Magic is a ‘Must-Win’

The struggling OKC Thunder — losers of two in a row — are in desperate need of a victory. Even against the lowly Orlando Magic, Kevin Durant places special emphasis on tonight’s game. Per the Oklahoman: “Kevin Durant sat at his locker following Wednesday’s gut-wrenching overtime loss at Memphis and offered a shocking reply to a basic question about how the Thunder can bounce back after two straight losses. ‘We’ll get a win in Orlando,’ Durant said. ‘Simple.’ That wasn’t the shocking part. ‘It’s a must-win game,’ Durant added. ‘A must-win game.’ This is what it’s come to for the Thunder. The defending Western Conference champion must now win against an Eastern Conference bottom feeder Friday night to restore the faith. No matter how you slice it, it’s a sad state of affairs for a team that at this point of the season should be focused solely on sharpening minor aspects before the postseason begins. Instead, the Thunder’s expected desperation for a victory in Orlando will adequately depict the funk in which this team finds itself.”

    I like Durant’s attitude, most elite/ championship teams don’t ever go thru the season and lose more than 2 games in a row. They lost 4 in a row last year against the Heat in the finals, the first time that happened to them all season (i believe). I dont think they lost 3 in a row yet this season either.

    they do need this win in way after losing back to back to Memphis and Denver, both whom are playing very well right now. loosing to Orlando would be unacceptable though

    It’s not a must win game. It’s an East bottom dweller in the regular season. Durant and Westbrook know what a real must win game is. They’re going to have a lot of ‘em in the playoffs. West playoffs going to tell a lot about these teams. Don’t matter that they just playin for a chance to lose to the Heat.
