Kevin Durant had one of the finest playoff games of his career in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals, scoring 36 points, dishing eight assists and grabbing six rebounds in the Thunder's series-tying win over the Spurs. History indicates that he might well have an encore in store for Game 5.
Durant's scored 30 or more points 13 times in his playoff career, which is already an impressive 36 games long. And four of those performances came immediately on the heels of a previous 30-point game, including, most recently, the back-to-back 31-point outings that helped the Thunder beat the Lakers in the Western Conference Semifinals.
One thing you probably won't see Durant do again is hand out eight assists. That mark was his new playoff high, topping multiple six-assist games. He's only now coming into his own as a playmaker, with these Western Conference Finals marking the first series that has seen Durant notch five assists in at least three games in his playoff career.
