Kevin Durant has been excellent, as you would expect.
Per-Game Stats: 36 minutes, 27.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 4.25 TO, 43% FG
Kevin Durant hasn't been his usual phenomenal self. His efficiency is down, he's turning the ball over too much, and he's not getting teammates involved enough.
But that's all a product of playing without Westbrook. Now that he has his partner in crime back, Durant will quickly return to last year's form.
Furthermore, the fact that he's actually been playing poorly so far is more of an indication of how amazingly talented he is.
After all, he's still scoring close to 30 points per game while carrying the entire load of the Thunder offense on his narrow shoulders.
Durant's numbers may not be his best, but he kept the Thunder afloat without Westbrook, and they should once again be an elite team now that Westbrook has returned.
