Kevin Durant has been the model citizen of a superstar in his time with the Oklahoma City Thunder, so it's not surprising to hear him sound like a seasoned head coach when he responded after the Thunder's game three loss to the Miami Heat on Sunday night.
KD after the game. "It's frustrating...tough loss but it's not over.We have to keep playing together and believing"— OKC THUNDER (@okcthunder) June 18, 2012
Durant scored 25 on the night and did his part, but the Heat defense deserves credit for the job they did despite questionable fouls from the referees. LeBron James also put up an incredible 29 points and 14 rebounds. Yet the Thunder were also down 2 to 0 against the San Antonio Spurs, who were previously undefeated in the playoffs and for 20 consecutive games overall and they came back. They are down just 2-1 at this point, so anything is possible.
