The Stat Line Of The Night – 3/16/09 – Kevin Durant
Total Pro Sports – The San Antonio Spurs traveled to Oklahoma City to face a struggling Thunder team. If the Spurs had any thought that their coach Gregg Popovich’s 1000th game was going to be an easy game they were wrong, the Spurs were handed their 22nd loss of the season as the Thunder won the game 78-76.
“Playing a phenomenal team like the Spurs always helps us out in the confidence area,” Durant said. “I think our defense just won the game for us. I know the Spurs can attest to that. They’ve won a lot of games defensively, and we can learn from a team like them.”
The Oklahoma City Thunder were lead by second year NBA sensation Kevin Durant who scored 25 points and added 3 rebounds and 2 assists in the win, thus making Kevin Durant “The Stat Line Of The Night” for Monday March 16th, 2009.
