Kevin Durant came to play in Game 6.
The Warriors star exploded for 38 first-half points, the most he's ever scored in a half to give the Warriors a 72-53 half-time lead.

Durant shot 12-of-17 from the field, 4-of-8 from the three-point line and a perfect 10-of-10 at the free throw line in just 23 minutes of action to tie Charles Barkley for the second-most points scored in a half in the playoffs.
Kevin Durant's 38 first-half points ties the NBA record for most points in the first half of a playoff game, matching Charles Barkley's 38-point half at Golden State on May 4, 1994.

Durant's 38 trails only former Warriors guard Eric "Sleepy" Floyd, who scored 39 points in a half in 1987. Charles Barkley's 38 came in the frist half against the Warriors in 1994, where he went on to score 56 points.
Michael Jordan holds the record for most points scored in a playoff game with 63 against the Boston Celtics in 1986.
Will KD get there today?
