The Oklahoma City Thunder forward, who is the league's leading scorer this season, had a career-high 54 points against the Golden State Warriors earlier this week.
The Miami Heat forward told ESPN: "I love when I see KD do something like that. It gives me an incentive. I don't get that many shots around here, but I might be able to do a little something. I might be able to get a couple of dunks.
"I do a lot of checking and seeing what guys have done overnight. After every game, I always go and see what guys did. I didn't have to look too far to see what KD did last night. As soon as I looked at my phone, a family member of mine said, 'KD had 54, you only had 21. You stink.' So, there it is.
"Once a scorer like that gets going, you ain't going to stop him. I saw like the last 20 points he had, and they were all contested jumpers. He was hitting, barely touching the net. When you're in a zone like that, it doesn't matter as a defender. There's nothing you can do about it. It was a big-time, big-time game for him."
The two will face each other when the Thunder visit the Heat later this month.
