Thunder's Durant: "I'm shooting too much"

With the Oklahoma City Thunder just 5-4 since Russell Westbrook went down with a knee injury, All-Star forward Kevin Durant is taking his fair share of the blame.

"I'm not doing enough to help them," Durant told The Oklahoman on Monday of his 28-9 team. "I'm shooting too much. I'm shooting too many threes. I'm not helping them out at all. So it's not on them."

Westbrook has undergone his third knee surgery in eight months and Durant knows that he and his team need to step up in the star guard's absence.

"The first few games without Russell, we did a great job moving the ball," the 25-year-old, whose 29.6 points per game is good for the best in the NBA, explained. "I think now I'm just flat out shooting too much. I have to find a way to get my teammates easier shots. I've been thinking these last few games in order for us to get it going I have to do it all offensively. But, nah, we have to do it together. It's a great learning experience for me. It's the first time I've really been in that type of position. But I just have to get everybody involved. I may have to pass up a few to find a better shot."

The Thunder are back in action on Tuesday night when they visit the Memphis Grizzlies.
