SEATTLE — Kevin Durant had a much better outing in his second NBA game, finishing with a game-high 27 points on 11 of 23 shooting with five rebounds in just less than 40 minutes. He had only one assists and six turnovers, a ratio that will kill your fantasy team. But I digress. Here’s what he had to say after the game….
On whether he surprised himself with his performance
I wouldn’t say that. I know my abilities. I just tried to come out aggressive and have fun. I think that’s the biggest thing, is to have fun. And I think that’s what we did tonight. Even though we came up with the loss we learned some things.
On how long he thinks it’ll take before he gets it
I don’t know. I’m trying to figure that out right now. Hopefully as we go on through the season I get more and more comfortable with the game. We’ll see.
On whether he’s tired after back-to-backs
I’m young, man. I’m 19 years old. Plus I love playing the game. I can’t be tired. This is my job now.
On playing at home
It was fun. The crowd was into it and they supported us 110 percent and they really got going at the first tip. That’s what we need out of our fans and it was fun.
