The brand new Most Valuable Player of the NBA had a pretty simple and straight forward explanation for how he and his Thunder teammates handled the L.A. Clippers Wednesday night.
"Guys were pissed off," Kevin Durant said, "and we wanted to respond."
The Thunder got off to a good start, withstood a Clipper rally and had a huge third quarter to breeze to a 112-101 win. They led by as many as 20 points.
