The Oklahoma City Thunder are headed to the NBA Finals and Kevin Durant is a major reason why. Durant scored 34 points in Game 6, but it was his huge third quarter that helped Oklahoma City erase a double-digit Spurs lead.
Durant played all 12 minutes of the third quarter, scoring 14 of his 34 points. Durant made 4-of-6 shots in the third quarter and 4-of-5 free throws. As if the 14 points weren't enough, Durant also pulled down five rebounds, dished out two assists and blocked a shot in the third quarter.
He nearly outperformed the entire Spurs team during the quarter. San Antonio scored 18 points during the third quarter to go along with eight rebounds, four assists and zero blocked shots.
