Like fellow superstar Russell Westbrook, Durant got a bit of a break on Thursday in the blowout victory. His 30 minutes on the court were the fewest he'd played since Jan. 15 against the Timberwolves, as was his point total.

It was just another day at the office for Durant, whose Thunder have off until Thursday's matchup with a Pelicans team that played Monday and also has another game on Tuesday.

Unsurprisingly, Durant did more than his share in keeping the Thunder within striking distance of the reigning NBA champs until the final seconds.

The newly-crowned Western Conference Player of the Month played well yet again, although he has been performing at such a high level lately that some of Monday's numbers look rather pedestrian compared to his recent production. Durant uncharacteristically failed to record any defensive stats Monday, but his typical all-around production makes him a worthy fantasy play every time he takes the floor.
