Kevin Durant had a performance for the ages in Game 5.

Playing every minute, he stuffed the stat sheet to finish with 49 points, 17 rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and two blocks to lead the Nets to a 114-108 Game 5 win after they were down by as many as 17.

Courtesy those numbers, KD became the first player in NBA playoff history to register at least 45 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists.

That is just one of multiple records he broke, as the NBA community - past and present players - took to Twttier to share their reactions on KD's superhuman performance.
