Each night, Eye on Basketball brings you what you need to know about the games of the NBA. From great performances to terrible clock management the report card evaluates and eviscerates the good, the bad, and the ugly from the night that was.
|Tim Duncan||The Old Man had it going tonight and was just killer. Dunking on Serge Ibaka, flowing on defense, hitting mid-range shots. He's playing vintage basketball over the past year, and he was a huge reason the Spurs got it done without Manu Ginobili.|
|Danny Green||Green shot well tonight, more efficiently than Tony Parker. But I was really impressed with his defense, pushing to the outside and pressuring on the perimeter.|
|Kevin Durant||He shot well. He did his thing. He was Kevin Durant. But he came soft to the ball that lead to the turnover (a continuing issue with him). He cost Russell Westbrook an and-one on a putback of a layup he interfered with. And while Westbrook will get all the blame, Durant failed to establish himself. He deserves criticism too. Passing game, though.|
|Serge Ibaka||Got dunked on. Slow on rotations. Shot poorly. Got lost chasing blocks. Didn't make an energy impact. His first game after the extension that may have cost them Harden was not a good one.|
|Russell Westbrook||So much fail. Shot terribly. Forced it. Poor defense. And got lost on the final possession to give up the gamewinner. It was a prett rough night for the new most polarizing player in the game.|
