Oklahoma Thunder had the best start on the Western Conference.
Even though there was the NBA lock-out and missed schedules of practice, the team made three consecutive wins.
The score against San Antonio Spurs was 108-96.
Kevin Durant, the Oklahoma’s star player said that he just let everything be instead of caring too much.
“It might sound odd, but late in the game, I just don’t care anymore. ”
“I think that’s the best way to go about it. If you think about it too much, you end up overdoing or missing it. So I just don’t care. If I miss a shot, If I make it, good.”
“I wanted to be that guy that made big shots. I made a few. But I really was not as successful as I wanted to be. I think I cared a little bit too much. Now, I’m just letting it play out. Whatever happens, happens. Still be confident in myself that I can make those shots.”
Kevin finished with 27 points.
The coach of Oklahoma Thunder Scott Brooks said, “One of the things it takes on this league is just continuing to go through the process of getting better. And Kevin’s getting better in late game situations, and I’m with him on that. I’m getting better. And that’s what teams do. You don’t become good overnight. It takes time. But Kevin is a gamerand he makes plays for his team, and tonight we needed him to make that shot and he did.”
Russell Westbrook also did well when Durant and James Harden could not take a shot.
Coach Brooks said, “Russell willed our team to win his toughness on both ends of the floor. He was controlling the game with his shots, with his attacks and penetration.”
Spurs now hasÂ 6-3 score in wins and losses.
