With Russell Westbrook out of the mix, it's no surprise that the Oklahoma City Thunder have leaned even more heavily than usual on Kevin Durant. However, he came up way short in Game 5 against the Houston Rockets, despite scoring 36 points, because he failed to knock down a bucket in the fourth quarter. According to Elias, over the last 15 playoff seasons, only two other players have gone without a point in the fourth quarter after scoring at least 36 points through the first three quarters: Richard Hamilton on May 3, 2006 (40 points) and Chauncey Billups on April 19, 2009 (36 points).
