Jones missed the putback and the Thunder came up empty. Durant wasn’t happy about it. He was shaking his head in what appeared to be a mix between disappointment and disbelief. But as the two began to walk toward the bench, they stopped near the free throw line and started discussing the sequence. They stood there, alone as three teammates watched nearby, discussing the matter. Oklahoman

By the looks of it, Jackson was explaining that it was a miscommunication and he might have thought KD was going to a different spot on the floor. After roughly 30 seconds going back in forth trying to figure it out, the two smiled, gave each other five and went and took a seat on the bench. Oklahoman

Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant has dismissed his $600,000 federal lawsuit against his former accountant. The two-page filing dated Friday says only that Durant and his company -- K. Durant Enterprises LLC -- had agreed to dismiss the lawsuit filed by Durant in December against Joel Lynn Elliott in federal court in San Jose, Calif. The filing does not say whether there is a settlement. Attorneys for Durant and Elliott did not return phone calls to their offices. The lawsuit alleged that the California-based Elliott deducted some personal expenses as business expenses on Durant's taxes without proper documentation. It alleged professional negligence, breach of fiduciary duty and breach of contract and sought $200,000 for each of the three counts. NBA.com

He mixed in an occasional long-distance heat check, and while a couple of those attempts were overly ambitious, they were promising in one sense: they is starting to show less obsession with preserving his field goal percentage at all costs. Even some of his carelessness (a season-high eight turnovers) could be tolerated, because it emanated from his aggression. And while he couldn't come close to winning the NBA MVP on this night, he made sure that he came no closer to losing it, which is what would have happened had Durant dominated him in the second game of a season sweep. "The MVP race is a long, long way from over," Wade said. Bleacher Report

Many have already billed the Thunder-Heat as a budding rivalry. LeBron James disagrees. And he's got an example and some stats to back that up. “It's hard to say rivalry when you see North Carolina and Duke,” James said pregame. “North Carolina and Duke have played 85 times, and North Carolina has outscored them by two points in 85 meetings and North Carolina is 43-42, I believe in the all-time series. That's a rivalry. This isn't a rivalry.” Oklahoman
