Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant put up the highest point total of any player in the NBA this season on Wednesday. Durant’s 47 points tied Blake Griffin’s output against the Pacers back in December. On top of the 47 points, Durant pulled down 18 rebounds, and it still took overtime to get the win against the Timberwolves in Minnesota.

For Minnesota, Kevin Love continues to be a bright spot amongst a season that has been filled with challenges. Love finished with 31 points and 20 rebounds. This marks the third time in his career that the big man from Southern California has put up 30 or more points and 20 or more rebounds in the same game. Michael Beasley also added 30 points for the Wolves, but it wasn’t enough to outlast Durant and the Thunder.

Gilbert Arenas continued his impressive display of footwear this season. Last night, he hit the court wearing the Phoenix-inspired colorway of the Nike Air Max Penny. Not to be outdone, his opponent on the other side of the court, A.J. Price, stepped on the court wearing a pair of the Rising Sun Jordan Retro 12.

Arenas and the Magic may have won the game, but which player had the better sneakers in the latest Sneaker Watch?
