Durant and Davis have faced tough times lately with their teams and some people have called them out for not playing well enough.
That complaint certainly couldn’t be leveled against them recently, as Durant and Davis have come alive in huge ways in 2022-23.

Because of their recent surges, both Durant and Davis have been named the East and West Players of the Week by the NBA.
Durant has been good for 33 points and 7 rebounds with 65.4% from the field over the last week, helping his team get a 3-1 record.
As for Davis, he’s been incredible with 37.8 points, 13 rebounds, and 3.25 blocks a game, and has led his Lakers to also go 3-1 over the last week.
How many more amazing weeks do these guys have inside them?
Durant & Davis Dominating
Fans of both teams are hoping that Durant and Davis will keep up this sensational output in the weeks ahead.
Is it possible that these men continue producing so much?
It’s not out of the realm of possibilities because they have done it before in previous seasons.
Will this be enough to help their respective teams overcome their challenges and actually be playoff contenders?
That remains to be seen but both teams are performing far better than they had been just weeks ago, mostly because of Durant and Davis.
No matter how the rest of the season goes, this much is clear: Durant and Davis should not be written off.
Their sensational numbers speak for themselves.
