Why Durant will be just fine during the lockout

Kevin Durant went off.

I mean, he really went off.

The Oklahoma City Thunder superstar balled it up at Rucker Park in Harlem Monday night and dropped 66 points, including nailing a variety of long-distance baskets. And these weren't just NBA three-pointers. These were from well downtown, sometimes five or so feet behind the 3-point line.

Durant started off the contest slowly but heated up in time to help lead DC Power to a 99-93 win over the Sean Bell All-Stars in front of a standing-room only crowd at the Entertainers Basketball Classic.

The NBA's scoring leader last season, Durant connected on 9-of-11 3-pointers, including five straight from well beyond NBA range, early in the fourth quarter.

“I always wanted to play in Rucker Park all my life,” Durant said in a postgame interview.

Whenever the NBA lockout ends, opponents beware.
