Booker leads the team in assists (7.1) while ranking seventh in the league in points (28). In his last contest, Booker totaled 32 points and six assists.
Forward Kevin Durant thrives on the offensive end. Durant has such long arms but handles the rock with ease on the perimeter. The 14-time All-Star gets to his spots on the court with ease. Durant averages the fourth-most points in the NBA (28.3) with 6.5 rebounds per contest. See who to back at SportsLine.
