Oklahoma City demolished the Boston Celtics tonight 130-109 amid talk that Thunder star Kevin Durant would possibly sthink about signing with the Eastern Conference team this summer of free agency. In his first game in Boston since 2012, Durant and the Thunder owned the historic Celtics in a game where OKC had as much as a thirty point lead in the second half. He led the winners with 28 points in a game where he was taken out of the game with nine minuets to go. His running mate All-star Russell Westbrook scored 24 and Enes Kanter added 17 with 12 boards.
As for Durant in Boston in 2016-2017, that would please Celtic fans who broke into a chant of “Come to Boston!” as the 6-9 forward stepped to the free throw line in the third quarter.
ESPN has put the nuts and bolts together in there article published today. Durant could consider the Celtics, but why bother. He has all he needs in OKC to win a title and there are no guarantees of a title in Boston or anywhere East of I-35. Now that doesn’t include that team on the left coast but that is another story.
