None of this could’ve happened without a herculean effort from superstar forward Kevin Durant. With Kyrie Irving out and James Harden severely limited, the brunt of the scoring load fell squarely on Durant’s shoulders.
And he delivered.
With five minutes still remaining in the game, Durant has a massive triple-double — 43 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists.
The NBA world took to Twitter to react to his insane performance so far.

Just remember Kevin Durant ain’t come out here chucking up shots & playing hero ball like many of y’all recommended he do. Everything he’s doing is within the flow of the game. 🔥📝

Durant has yet to take a single break tonight, playing every minute of the game so far.
Will KD’s effort be enough to will his team to a Game-5 victory?
