Kevin Durant with 24-point, 8-rebound first half
The focus in these NBA Finals has been on LeBron James’ brilliance and on Stephen Curry’s three-point explosion. Kevin Durant was getting overlooked, despite playing at a near Finals MVP level.
No longer — Durant had 24 points on 7-of-10 shooting, plus 8 rebounds in the first half.
Durant was doing stuff like this.
His shooting made up for a slow start from Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson (a combined 1-of-9 from three) and it was only a six-point Cavaliers lead at the half.
