Lamar Odom finally had a game where he could have considered himself a big part of an important victory—had the Los Angeles Clippers won. Unfortunately for him, Kevin Durant pulled out a huge performance and led the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 109-97 win Tuesday night.
Odom didn't throw down a huge stat line, but he played solid defense, scored eight points on 4-of-7 shooting and grabbed seven rebounds in 27 minutes of action. Of course, there was the whole Durant thing.
It wasn't just one of those nights where Durant gets to the line a lot, puts up a ton of points and the Thunder walk away with a victory. Instead, it was one where Durant was ridiculously aggressive while draining three-pointers left and right. In other words, he was unstoppable.
Durant put up 32 points on 12-of-19 shooting, making five of his six three-pointers and adding seven rebounds and seven assists just for good measure.
Kevin Durant with a monster jam. Posterizes Odom. My goodness.— chris palmer (@ESPNChrisPalmer) January 23, 2013
