Though they’re working hard to defend each other, Thunder forward Kevin Durant and Houston forward Chandler Parsons still have found time to share brief pleasantries during breaks in the action on the court – such as standing side-by-side along the free-throw lane.
Both players are 24 years old, but are separated by four years in the NBA. They met when Chandler attended Durant’s 2010 Nike Skill Academy during the summer. “He’s an unbelievable guy,” Parsons said. “His work ethic is unbelievable and it’s crazy how good he is. I met him a while ago and he’s a good dude. His work ethic is really impressive and I look up to him.”
Parsons and Rockets teammate Francisco Garcia have alternated defending Durant throughout the opening-round series, which continues with Game 4 on Monday at 8:30 p.m. at Toyota Center. “He’s ultra aggressive no matter what,” Parsons said. “I expect him to come out even more aggressive (with Russell Westbrook out after season-ending knee surgery). Maybe a lot more plays will be ran through him. He’ll probably touch the ball a lot more. It’s going to be a real focal point to keep him from getting anything easy.”
