Kevin Durant had a bad shooting night for the first time in forever. Thunder nation seems to be up in arms and worried about game 7.  Fear not my Thunder readers. Kevin Durant will be fine for game 7. Well, that is if you believe stats don’t lie. I was curious on how Kevin followed up a sub 20 point game. What I have found will definitely ease your pain.

Found out Durant has yet to follow up a sub 20 point game with another sub 20 point game in the past 2 seasons.

Game break down:
2010-2011

at clippers (93-107 loss) 16, followed 28 vs. portland
at houston (98-99 loss) 18, followed 28 vs. hornets
at spurs (74-101 loss) 16, followed 28 at memphis
vs. Kings (24 minutes 126-96 win 17, followed 21 vs. clippers (24 minutes 111-96 win)
at cavs (29 min 95-75 win) 19, followed 32 at wizards (25 min 116-89 win)
vs. bucks (22 min 106-110 OT loss) 14, followed 41, vs. Denver

2009-2010
vs. portland (74-83 loss) 16, followed 28, vs. Lakers
at Lakers, (85-101 loss) 19, followed 28, at Utah
at Magic (94-108 loss) 12, followed by 35 vs. Wizards
vs. mavs, L 12, followed by 27, vs. detroit
at rockets, L, 13, followed by 30  at Lakers
at denver, L, 19, followed by 32 at clippers
at pacers, L, 16, followed by 45 vs. spurs
at Lakers L, 17, followed by 26 vs.  Lakers

Not to mention this season Kevin is also shooting the three point shot better as well.

When Kevin scores below 20 points: 5-30 (17%)
When Kevin scores above 20 points: 12-31 (39%)

I think we can breath easy Thunder fans.
