The Legend of Kevin Durant continues to grow as he finished with 43 points (19 in the 4th quarter), 12 rebounds, seven assists, and three steals as the Thunder hand the Lakers their seventh consecutive home loss.
Thursday marked the 34th time this season, most in the NBA, Durant has finished with at least 20 points and five assists (had 33 all of last season). It was also the eighth time this season Durant has scored 40 or more points, which is also a league high (next closet is Kevin Love at three games).ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Kendrys Morales went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in the Royals 7-1 win over the Twins on Monday.
Morales is raking to start the season, hitting .358 with 12 runs, two home runs and nine RBI as the Royals everyday DH and cleanup hitter. 2014 was a lost year for Morales as he struggled to find a role with the Mariners and Twins but he showed capable of being a productive player over the two seasons prior where he hits a combined 45 home runs over the two years. Morales was one of the more promising offensive players in the league before a devastating ankle injury nearly ended his career in 2010 but if his hot start is any indication of things to come those who took a chance on Kendrys could be in for a solid season.
