Durant, Thunder Look To Extend Win Streak In Brooklyn Friday Night

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/30/2014 8:08:45 PM

Kevin Durant is playing at an elite level that is hard to justify with words for those that haven’t seen him over the Oklahoma City Thunder’s nine-game win streak. The Brooklyn Nets can’t be looking forward to seeing him in person. Durant has now scored at least 30 points in 12-straight online sports betting games, becoming just the third player over the last 30 seasons to put up those kinds of numbers. Durant will look to extend that streak and the Thunder’s run when they visit Brooklyn on Friday night, and the Nets will be in tough to slow him down.

The Nets have been the hottest team in the Eastern Conference over the past couple of weeks, winning eight of their last 10 games to climb in to a playoff spot. However, Brooklyn is still three games below .500, and they will be looking to a number of different players to try to at least slow Durant down a little bit.

Lebron James admitted before the Miami Heat’s loss to the Thunder that nobody could guard Durant one-on-one, and his words served as prophecy as Durant went on to put up 33 points in a game where he went one-on-one with Lebron a number of times. Durant is easily the best pure scorer in the game right now, and he has worked hard to improve the other areas of his game over time. Beating the defending NBA champion Heat in their own building was not an easy task, but Durant led the way and got plenty of help from Serge Ibaka, Derek Fisher, and Jeremy Lamb. Durant is tough enough to contain on his own, and Oklahoma City is that much more dangerous when the bench heats up.

The Nets have gotten a more consistent team effort in recent weeks, and that has been the key to their success. Brooklyn hasn’t shied away from going to Brook Lopez inside, and he has helped open up space on the perimeter for their shooters like Joe Johnson and Paul Pierce. However, the Nets’ loss to the Toronto Raptors showed that this team still isn’t playing at the level they could, and it won’t get any easier against the Thunder. Brooklyn will have to deal with a smaller, but much quicker Oklahoma City line up, and that will really test a defense that has been very average on most nights this online betting season.

There is a lot to talk about heading in to this Super Bowl odds weekend, but it’s hard to ignore how incredible Durant has played, and the way he continues to dominate even though opponents are trying to key in on him. That could be the case again on Friday night, and if the Thunder bench scores the way it did against Miami, the result will be another blowout win for Oklahoma City.
