Kevin Durant's streak of 41 consecutive games with 25-plus points came to end Tuesday as he finished with 23 points in three quarters of play as OKC defeated the Kings 107-92
Durant did not play at all in the fourth quarter and before hating on this realize that Durant said he is actually happy the streak is over as he was tired of all the attention he was getting for it.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Mike Pelfrey was demoted to the bullpen for the start of the season.
Pelfrey lost out to Tommy Milone for the fifth starter's job, but that hardly seems like a surprise. His move to the pen means that he's probably not even going to see much of a chance even if the Twins need a spot start as they can always bring back Trevor May who also looked better than Pelfrey. You can feel good about ignoring Pelfrey in all fantasy formats. Analysis: Howard Bender
Danny Santana will be the Twins Opening Day starting shortstop.
Eduardo Escobar and Eduardo Nunez were both being considered, but the job was really Santana's to lose. He picked up right where he left off last year, batting .341 (15-for-44), but he did strike out nine times to one walk. We don't expect him to post another .400-plus BABIP this year, so don't expect the batting average to stay as high as it was last season. Analysis: Howard Bender
