Beast of the Night: Kevin Durant rolled right along with 33 points, 11 boards, 3 assists, 2 steals, 1 block and 2 turnovers. He hit a three and shot 50 percent (9-18) from the field and 100 percent (14-14) from the line. Some thought using a No. 4 draft pick on him was a bit much, but it’s turning out to be about right.
