Kevin Durant: The Playoffs Don’t Feel Different
After Oklahoma City’s 87-79 loss to the Lakers on Sunday in Game 1, I asked Kevin Durant what felt different about being out there during his first experience in the playoffs.
"Nothing really to be honest," said Durant. "A lot of people say it would be different, but it felt the same as the regular season and it was just fun and exciting to be out there. I wish we came out on the other side of the ‘W’, but it’s a long series."
Scott Brooks stressed multiple times that he didn’t feel his team suffered from nervousness.
"There were stretches during the game where he was pressing," said Brooks of Durant. Brooks expressed liking that part of his performance, as well as what he did defensively.
