New York, Aug 2 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant had a good game when he featured in a exhibition basketball game at the Rucker Park. The NBA’s leading scorer bagged 66 points during the game. Durant wore No. 21 orange jersey during the game.

Durant’s performance during the game was trending on Twitter on Tuesday. A video of the game was also viewed several times on the Internet. The exhibition game and the performance of Durant are undoubtedly the best news in quite a while for the sport which is under real threat of missing games or even the entire season.

The lockdown follows disagreement between NBA and the players. The lockdown doesn’t appear to be nearing the end anytime soon because two fresh lawsuits have been filed by the league against the players association. Unless the feud and the disagreements are resolved soon, it is certain that the next season of NBA will not be a full one.

In the worst case scenario, the entire season of NBA could be canceled because of the lockdown. A similar lockdown in the NFL was recently resolved and the game has been given the green light to start a new season.
