Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant rejected recent criticism directed at teammate Russell Westbrook’s late-game management during the Thunder’s two recent losses in Durant’s absence.

“Who cares what people say?” said Durant, who missed his fourth straight game Thursday. “[He should] just play his game. From watching the last two games, he’s the reason why we had a chance to win — his aggressiveness, getting his teammates involved.

“Sometimes it’s kind of hard in those situations, knowing exactly what to do when teams are making runs and playing you different ways. But I think he’s handled it well. Of course, he’s not going to be great every game, but that’s how the dice rolls sometimes. I think he’s handled it well to lead the team like he’s been doing.”
