Detroit Pistons head coach Maurice Cheeks believes that it is hard to adjust to facing Oklahoma City Forward Kevin Durant.

Maurice Cheeks has said that it is hard for teams to adjust when they face Kevin Durant.

The Oklahoma City Thunder forward scored 37 points during the team's 119-110 win over the Detroit Pistons last night.

The Pistons head coach told reporters: "We weren't hitting shots and they were hurting us on the offensive glass, but it is really hard to adjust your lineup to fix those things when you are facing Kevin.

"You always have to have someone on the floor that can guard him, so that limits your options when you want to change things."

Durant is averaging 29.6 points per game so far this season.
