Some have said you and Serge have been asked to play a different role than you have been all year and it takes a little while to adjust to it.

“Yeah, but we're fine. That's no excuse for us right now. We just have to do what we're supposed to do.”

Why haven't you guys gotten to the free-throw line more?

“I don't really know. I guess we've just got to keep on attacking like we were and hopefully the whistle's in our favor. We'll attack and see what happens. We've been being aggressive. Unfortunately, the whistle hasn't been going our way.”

What more can Kevin Durant do for you guys?

“Just being Kevin. Just come out here and do what he does. He doesn't have to do any more than what he's already doing. He's playing at a special level and hopefully will continue to.”

Are they making it hard for you to finish at the rim?

“No. Did you see Serge's two dunks? He was wide open. I missed a couple layups, so we just have to finish those.”
