“I think it’s great. It’s a nice individual award, but I know Melo is thinking bigger than the scoring title,” Knicks coach Mike Woodson said after the team’s morning shootaround. “His whole thought process this year has been to try to get to the Finals. It starts Saturday (against Boston).

“But I think it’s a great accomplishment it’s a testament to what he put in last summer, through the Olympic work and getting ready for vet camp, and it’s been a beautiful carryover for this season.” – nydailynews

“I give Kevin a lot of credit,” Brooks said, according to the Oklahoman, “because maybe 10 games ago, if he was really focused on trying to get it four years in a row, he could have got it easily.

“Many times … he was trying to get a triple-double. And when you try to get 10 assists, that means you’re not trying to score.” – espn

The note, which was posted to Durant’s Instagram account on Wednesday morning, said: “SITTING OUT TONIGHT’S GAME, if you disappointed I didn’t try to go for the scoring title, oh well!!”
