Solid effort rip
Doesn't come close?
LeBron averaged 38.5 PPG, 8.3 RPG, 8.0 APG, 1.2 SPG, 1.2 BPG, 48.7% FG, and 59.1% TS in the Magic series in 2009.
Durant's averaging 35.5 PPG, 13.0 RPG, 7.5 APG, 1.0 SPG, 1.5 BPG, on 51% FG and 62.6% TS in two games against the Grizzlies so far. It's just two games, and I'd be surprised if he kept that up, but he's actually coming really close to putting up LeBron 2009 type numbers in this series and the playoffs all-together.
LeBron averaged 35-9-7-2-1 on 51% FG and 62% TS in the 2009 playoffs. Durant's averaging 36-11-6-1-1 on 51% FG and 63% TS since Westbrook went down. But sure, "it does not even come close" and "solid effort" by Durant so far.
