They had Tayshaun Prince, who this season smothered Durant into 39 percent shooting and three turnovers on average in his 115 minutes of court time against Durant. They also had bulldog Tony Allen and, if all else failed, Quincy Pondexter. But Prince’s play tonight made it seem like his regular season success was a fluke.
