Player of the Night
Kevin Durant, Thunder
vs. Memphis Grizzlies
35 points, 10 boards, 6 dimes, 4 blocks
While his team may be an afterthought in the NBA, Durant still manages to capture the spotlight with his freakish stat lines from time to time. He's still got that wiry frame that looks fragile to the untrained eye and is about as pure of a scorer this league has seen in quite some time.
But as the Thunder improve in the next couple years, Durant's fantasy value has the potential to skyrocket. Right now opposing defenses know that the way to stop the Thunder is to shut down Durant. But with the emergence of rookie point guard Russell Westbrook and teammate Jeff Green, Durant's future certainly looks promising.
He's a must keep in every league format as long as you are aware of the fact that like most scoring machines, there's a price to pay in terms of field goal percentage and turnovers.
