Suns’ Kevin Durant reaches unwanted NBA Playoff streak joining Michael Jordan in dubious record

Kevin Durant, the star player of the Phoenix Suns, is on a playoff losing streak that is only matched by Michael Jordan. However, this is not a record that any player would want to have. After Sunday’s loss against the Los Angeles Clippers in the opening game of the postseason series, Durant has now lost seven consecutive playoff games, including back-to-back losses against the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern semifinals and the four-game sweep by the Boston Celtics in the first round last year.

Despite the losing streak, Durant has been playing exceptionally well during this stretch, averaging 30.3 points per game, which is the second-highest average in a seven-game playoff losing skid, behind only Michael Jordan’s 38.1 points per game.

Durant is determined to end his losing streak and improve his postseason record. His team, the Phoenix Suns, is heavily favored to bounce back and take the series against the Clippers in Game 2 on Tuesday. With their homecourt advantage, it is unlikely that the Suns will give up easily. However, Durant must step up and lead his team to victory to ensure that his losing streak does not extend to eight games.

It is a concerning situation for both Durant and the Suns, as his losing streak could potentially impact the team’s overall performance. But with his immense talent and determination to win, Durant is expected to come out strong and lead his team to a much-needed victory. All eyes will be on him in Game 2, as he looks to break free from the shadow of Michael Jordan’s record and turn the tide in favor of the Phoenix Suns.

Kevin Durant Dominates in NBA Playoffs Debut for Suns, but Late-Game Woes Hand Clippers Game 1 Win

Despite a stellar performance from Kevin Durant, the Phoenix Suns fell short in Game 1 of their NBA Playoff series against the Los Angeles Clippers. Durant scored 27 points, grabbed nine rebounds, dished out 11 assists, and even recorded two blocks and a steal. However, he only attempted one shot in the last six minutes of the game, and the Suns lost 115-110. Durant attributed his lack of scoring in the closing minutes to the Clippers’ defensive scheme, which he struggled to break through.

Suns coach Monty Williams agreed that they need to find ways to get Durant the ball in better positions to score, including creating more live-ball situations and having him bring the ball up the floor. With Game 2 just around the corner, the Suns and Durant will be looking to bounce back and avoid falling into a 0-2 hole. Losing both games at home would be a significant setback for the Suns against a determined Clippers squad.
