Kevin Durant Drops 28 Points on the Celtics (VIDEO)

by March 17, 2016

He may like the city of Boston a whole lot, but Kevin Durant enjoys beating the Celtics even more, as evidenced by his 28 points Wednesday night in the visiting OKC Thunder’s 130-109 win.

Russell Westbrook added 24 points, and Enes Kanter chipped in with 17 points and 12 rebounds.

The C’s say they were “punked”.

Per the AP:

“We just have to ride this wave now and see where it takes us,” Durant said after the Thunder posted their second straight victory of 20-plus points. […] The Thunder were in control for most of the night, quieting the TD Garden crowd for most of Boston’s most lopsided home loss of the season until the 6-foot-9 forward’s free throws in the third quarter. He said he didn’t hear the chant.


Isaiah Thomas led Boston with 29 points, and Tyler Zeller had 16. The Celtics lost their third straight after winning six of seven. […] “It’s hard to guard a team like that with two very good players, as in, Westbrook and Durant,” Celtics guard Avery Bradley said.


It was Boston’s second straight loss at TD Garden following a 14-game home winning streak. […] Before the game, Boston coach Brad Stevens said that Durant’s ability to score is “ridiculous.”
