Numbers surrounded Wednesday night’s NBA action. Kevin Durant knocked a first-of-the-season off his list, a rookie celebrated his birthday and DeMarcus Cousins balanced buckets with rebounds. Check out who the big players are in the newest Must-See 3!
1. The KD Show
When the Warriors needed a hero the most, their small forward stepped up. In the absence of an injured Stephen Curry and Draymond Green, Kevin Durant put up his first triple-double of the season in Golden State’s 101-87 win over the Hornets.
2. Happy Birthday Giannis!
The ‘Greek Freak’ celebrated his 23rd birthday by leading the Bucks to a fourth-quarter surge, posting 25 points and splashing eight of his 12 free throw attempts in Milwaukee’s close 104-100 win over Detroit.
Pelicans’ big man DeMarcus Cousins recorded 40 points to go along with 22 rebounds and four blocks to down Denver in a 123-114 win. It’s Cousins’ second time this season scoring at least 40 points and 20 rebounds, the first coming on Oct. 26 against Sacramento.
