Kevin Durant apparently enjoys playing without his teammate Russell Westbrook, now that he always has the ball in his hands:

He broke into a huge grin when asked how it felt to run the offense without Westbrook, who had season-ending knee surgery Saturday.

"I tell you, it's fun," he said. "I feel like I'm playing street ball again, just having the ball in my hands all the time and initiating the offense."

I doubt Durant really meant it the way we see it.  He definitely didn't say it in the sense that he enjoys playing without his good friend Westbrook. Any player would have more fun if they got more touches, and Durant gets plenty of them now. I am not sure how far the Thunder can go with Durant consistently handling the ball, but Houston should not be threat. The best thing for the Thunder would be to have their current starting point guard Reggie Jackson gain more confidence, so he can be more of an offensive threat.
