Charles Barkley on Kevin Durant: Get creative

Barkley_300 It's good to have TNT's Charles Barkley in playoff form so early in the postseason.

After Sunday's Lakers win over Oklahoma City, Barkley had a suggestion for Thunder star and league-leading scorer Kevin Durant.

"Kevin Durant is going to have to learn that sometimes you can't make shots and you've got to find another way to help your team. He got frustrated, but sometimes you have to find another way to help your team. No matter how great you are, some nights you just can't make shots. Kevin Durant didn't have it today, and they didn't have a Plan B."
