On Monday, Kevin Durant had an “uncharacteristic” off shooting night that was so bad, it tied for the most misses (26) in a playoff game since 1997.  Who did he tie with?  Well it was with the greatest of al time, Michael Jordan.

Durant finished with 21 points on 7-of-33 shooting from the floor in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s 85-84 Game 2 loss to the Dallas Mavericks. Durant went 2-of-11 from 3-point range.

Durant’s 26 misses are the most he has ever had in a game in his career, playoffs or regular season.

“Just missed ’em. Just missed ’em,” Durant said. “Everything looked good for me. Coach drew up some good plays. Teammates set great screens. Russell delivered the ball perfect. It’s on me after that. I’ve just got to make ’em next game.”

Durant’s last miss came with three seconds left; it could’ve been a game-winning layup but was blocked by rookie Justin Anderson.  Steven Adams came through with the putback but it was too late and was waived off by the refs.

“Bad shooting night for me,” Durant said. “It’s a part of it. I wish it didn’t happen tonight, but it’s a part of it. Got some great looks all night and just didn’t knock ’em down. Just stick with my routine, don’t do too much extra, and go out there tomorrow and get ready for practice.”
