It doesn't matter if you're one of the top five players in the NBA. If you're going for a posterization, there's a chance you will get denied. Yes, LeBron James destroyed Ben McLemore and emasculated Jason Terry, but don't forget that even he got denied by Nate Robinson—who's a foot shorter than him. Kevin Durant, who's a posterization connoisseur himself, gets a little eager too, and tonight it was against the wrong person: Kevin Love. Durant's teammate got the rebound and bucket after the denial, but still: Damn, Durant.

UPDATED: Kevin Durant scored 48 points (23 in the fourth quarter) as the Thunder beat the Timberwolves 115-111. We think he'll be all right.
