Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder tie their Western Conference semi-final series with the San Antonio Spurs at 2-2 on the back a scoring outburst by Durant.

Durant tied a playoff career-high with 41 points, including 17 in the final quarter while the game was on the line. In the second half alone KD drained 10 of his 13 field goal attempts, going 6-for-6 in the last 12 minutes.

The four-time scoring champion hasn’t entirely rediscovered that form that won him the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award in the 2013-2014 season – and yet he’s still one of the best and most destructive players in the league.

We all know the potent scoring ability Durant possesses, and no one will be more wary of this than Gregg Popovich and his San Antonio Spurs.

Many tipped the Spurs to easily take care of the Thunder, but most didn’t predict that the Durant would get back to his absolute scoring best.

If the 2013-2014 MVP continues to recapture that nasty eye-pleasing form, the entire playoffs could receive a shake up.

The Spurs host the inform Durant in Game 5 on Wednesday at 11:00am (AEST).
