Kevin Durant ties Jordan for playoff record you don’t want, shrugs it off

If a player is mentioned in the same sentence with Michael Jordan, that’s a good thing. An honor.

Except in this case for Kevin Durant.

Matt Moore at CBS did the research and KD tied Jordan for most missed shots in a postseason game in 30 plus years at 26.

After the tight Dallas win, Durant largely shrugged off his ice-cold night because, well, what else is he going to do? It happens. Does anyone expect this to carry over to Game 3? Durant is one of the best shooters in the game, he’ll be just fine.
