Kevin Durant hurts Brendan Haywood’s feelings

Dallas had a 9 point lead in the first quarter… it was a great start that made you wonder if the Game 1 win was the beginning of a wave of momentum that would be too much for the young Thunder.

Then this happened. 

OKC closed the gap to 5 to end the first, took a 2 point lead into halftime, and ultimately won the game by 6 to even the series at 1. 

Brendan Haywood, meanwhile, was so traumatized… he winced and yelped at the site of any blue shirts… which was unfortunate considering that's what they handed out to fans pre-game. 

It…. it wasn't pretty.

  • You would think they’d pick a different color since OKC crowd wears blue. Maybe green? Or silver stars… now that would be distracting.
    Durant’s dunk was awesome. I had a feeling I’d see it here in the morning. Reminded me of Griffin vs. Mozgov:
    When the replay came on at half I shouted and told my wife she had to look at the TV. She was unimpressed, but admittedly distracted by homework.

  • My wife finally got up enough courage to ask me what happened to the Celtics? Interesting that Westbrook was benched for the entire fourth quarter. Brooks should tinker with Maynor at the point and use RW at the 2 next year. Anyway, OKC are title contenders for the foreseeable future. If Danny considers splitting the MLE — Daequan Cook could be worth pursuing.
