Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant scored 51 points and had nine assists and seven rebounds in Brooklyn’s 116-104 win against the Pistons on Sunday night.

Afterwards, the 33-year-old shared his thoughts on the game and his performance that night.

“I want to do everything, not just focus on offense,” Durant said. “I felt we got enough scoring. Defensively we come out, stick to the game plan, play physical and the offense will take care of itself. We went cold there for a second so I figured I should be more aggressive.”

Nets head coach Steve Nash praised Durant for his outstanding display and acknowledged his hard work and preparation prior to the game.

“Kevin was incredible,” Nash said. “Not an easy night. (Detroit) played extremely hard, tons of energy, and we were playing different lineups. … So there were challenges there for us. And for him to be able to score 51 points. … unbelievable.”

The Nets limited the Pistons to 4-of-18 shooting in the fourth quarter and closed out a win on their road trip with dominant fourth-quarter defense and Nash noted Durant’s impact on that end as well.

“He was just outstanding,” Nash added. “His leadership, his willingness to keep us in it … his defense was unbelievable in the fourth quarter as well. I told the guys to start the fourth we’re going to win it on defense and that’s what they did.”
