Loy's Place Hosts Carnival of the NBA #52: Thanksgiving EditionA bit delayed but just in time for Thanksgiving, Carnival of the NBA #52 is being hosted by Loy's Place (which is not responsible for the delay but stepped up in a pinch to handle the hosting duties this time around). My contribution is a post that discussed Kevin Durant's shooting woes and lack of an all around game to date--two trends that show no sign of changing soon; in his last two games--two blowout losses--Durant has shot 5-20 from the field while producing three rebounds, three assists and eight turnovers in 59 minutes of action. As I've said many times, the only thing that he does well at the moment is shoot free throws (17-18 in those two games, which is impressive not only for his accuracy but for the number of attempts; at least he is drawing some fouls now, though it is hard to understand why anyone would foul a player who is shooting .374 from the field and .841 from the free throw line).
