It’s just the next step in development for Durant. First Rookie of the year, Scoring champion, First team All-NBA and now NBA All-Star Game MVP. He was 14-25 from the floor for 36 points, 7 rebounds.
“Dream come true. Just blessed to be here” said Durant. “They were feeding me the ball. I’m glad to be taking this back to Oklahoma City.”
Durant also played a game high 38 minutes.
“I wasn’t surprised at all. Me and Scotty have been talking about this for a couple of weeks.”
Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook was not forgotten. In his second consecutive All-Star appearance, he had 21 points in 28 minutes. He was very explosive. In a game where some players thought it to be a reason to explode to the rim, Westbrook called it just another game.
Westbrook had his own highlight for the All-Star game:[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5eIi-rntyI]
