Will Durant or Bryant End Up Top Scorer?
After 65 games, the race for the 2011-12 scoring title is all up to one final contest each for Thunder forward Kevin Durant and Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant.
“Hopefully it’s a fun one,” Durant said of the final showdown. “That’s what the fans want to see.”
After scoring a game-high 32 points in Tuesday’s 118-110 victory over Sacramento, Durant increased his narrow lead over Bryant to .11 points.
The actual averages are 27.97 points for Durant to Bryant’s 27.86 points.
Bryant has the advantage of taking the floor last in a Thursday finale at Sacramento, while Durant and the Thunder close the season at home against Denver on Wednesday.
