Looking back at the box score. Durant actually had a really good offensive second half. 18 points including 12 in the 4th. I do not think he was trying to lose. What would he gain?
Dough, if he’s a gambler. Maybe he thought it better to join a winner than a team he just beat? Could have had his mind made up already and there was some kind of conflict of interest going on?
That is a bit out there. You think he would play well if he had a huge bet against his team? You think he is going to bet enough to compare to what he makes as a player? Why would he have to go join the Warriors if he just went to the Finals with a chance to win the finals? So he would lose to the Warriors on purpose to join them as winners? That is strange theory.
Could have been over the idea of playing with Westbrook any longer. If he had already made up his mind like I said, could have had some conflict of interest at play.
I mean, he scored some buckets in the 4th, but did it ever really get close? It felt like GSW was clearly in control down the home stretch. Durant missed his last two shots.
It’s probably a stretch, but going up 3-1 to lose 4-3 raises some flags given Durant left afterwards.
