Durant's 30 Point Game Streak Ends At 12

Kevin Durant

The Nets were one of the teams to hand the Thunder one of their 10 losses on the season, and even though Brooklyn has one of the leagues best marks since Jan. 1, Oklahoma City might be the best in the league period.

The Thunder showed it by waxing the Nets in Brooklyn on Friday by 25 points, and after leading by as many as 32, it wasnt necessary for Kevin Durant to play at all in the fourth quarter.

The streak was good while it lasted, but thats the least of my concerns, Durant said. Its easy for me to try to force it to keep the streak alive, but we needed this win because they beat us last time.

Durant came out with 1:15 left in the third quarter. Coach Scott Brooks didnt bother asking the NBAs leading scorer if he wanted to keep playing to extend the streak, saying he knew what the answer would be.

If he cared about the streak, he shouldve never missed the two shots. Thats on him. Cant blame it on me, Brooks said.
