Kevin Durant, Kevin Love

Through three quarters during Thursday night’s Cavs-Thunder matchup on TNT, Kevin Durant was a quiet 3-of-9 from the field for 11 points. His minutes are restricted after coming back from a Jones fracture that kept him out of OKC’s first 17 games, and its affected his rhythm.

Rondo has won a title, and he’s been an All-Star. He is not, however, one of the top 3 players in the league like he said in the video after the jump.
