Durant Admits Worrying About Media Before Game 7 Turnaround

Kevin Durant had 33 points in the Oklahoma City Thunder's Game 7 win, reestablishing his MVP-type performance in a series in which he often struggled.

"I got out of my own way," Durant said. "I was thinking too much. I was worrying about what [the media] was saying. I was worrying about what shots I was going to shoot throughout the game…"

During the series, The Oklahoman printed a column about Durant with a headline of "Mr. Unreliable."

"This is a one-sport town, and he's the superstar," Derek Fisher told Yahoo Sports. "Kevin understands it. He embraces it. The fact everybody else was going crazy over it – family and friends and fans – made it almost enjoyable for him to go out and play that night. As much as anything, it was a reminder that a lot of people cared about him here."
