In his career, Thunder star Kevin Durant has hit one game-winner, which came during his rookie season against Atlanta.
But, really, the entire Thunder roster can look back on this one and question the effort.

Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“The 16 offensive rebounds, thatĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s hard to overcome,Ă˘â‚¬Âť Brooks said. Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“And we donĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t miss free throws. ThatĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s one area that I always know weĂ˘â‚¬â„˘re going to be good at. But tonight was not normal for us.Ă˘â‚¬Âť
ItĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s also not often youĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ll see a player such as Rockets forward Shane Battier outplaying Durant. Battier scored 11 of his 18 points in the third quarter to thwart a Thunder run when it finally did muster some energy. Battier made seven of 11 shots for his point total, while Durant netted 18 points on 7-for-18 shooting.
DurantĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s teammates, though, are sticking with him and will make sure his spirits remain high.
Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“KD is our go-to guy,Ă˘â‚¬Âť Green said. Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“WeĂ˘â‚¬â„˘re going to keep giving him the ball in those (late-game) situations. We know those shots are going to fall for him eventually. He has great looks and he can shoot over anybody. So weĂ˘â‚¬â„˘re going to keep giving him the ball. We have a lot of faith in him.Ă˘â‚¬Âť
