Kevin Durant was on his way to a huge night, possibly the best of his career until one bad step just before half time almost ruined everything. KD drove to the basket just before the buzzer and stepped on the foot of a Warriors player and immediately collapsed to the ground. He injured the same ankle he had surgery on earlier this season. Thankfully for now it seems like it won’t be a big deal.


Seconds before halftime, Durant stepped on Marreese Speights’ foot and badly rolled his ankle while going hard to the basket. Durant was called for a charge on the play. He stayed on the floor as teammates huddled around him before limping off with some assistance.

“I was a little nervous,” said Durant, whose 30-point first half was the highest-scoring first half of his career. “But I knew when I got up and started walking it felt good. So I just wanted to make sure with the X-rays everything was good.”

Durant’s performance made him the first player since the ABA/NBA merger to score 30 points in less than 20 minutes, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

The Thunder say there is a chance he will play Friday night so it sounds like this was more of a scare than anything. It still stinks though because who knows how many points KD would of finished with. He was literally unguardable and no way the Thunder lose if he plays the whole game.
