Kevin Durant scored 39 points in their series clinching Game 6 victory over the Clippers in Los Angeles Thursday night to move onto the Western Conference Finals.
Durant scored 36 of his 39 points after the first quarter to up his career average in potential series-clinching games to 31.5 points, good for the third highest average, under those circumstances, in the history of the NBA. Not too bad for a guy whom an OKC paper deemed Mr. Unreliable. The only thing unreliable about KD is whether he will get 30-plus or 40-plus points in a game.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Doug McDermott (back) did not practice Tuesday.
It was reported on Saturday that McDermott suffered a setback on Saturday which caused him to miss a game. It looks like now, it could be more than a one game setback. He has not been a consistent part of the rotation, so his absence won't have many fantasy implications. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Dion Waiters (foot) did not practice Tuesday.
RIght now, Waiters should be considered questionable for the Thunder's Wednesday night match up against the Mavericks. Coach Brooks said his foot is feeling better but still not 100%. Andre Roberson has already been ruled out, which means Anthony Morrow could be in line for all the minutes he can handle if Waiters is unable to play. Analysis: Drew Phelps
