DALLAS – Kevin Durant knows what’s awaiting him Wednesday when he makes his Suns home debut against Oklahoma City at Footprint Center.

“I’m glad I was able to get a couple on the road to get my feet wet ’cause I know it’s going to be loud in there,” Durant said after Sunday’s win at Dallas. “Looking forward to our fans. I know they can’t wait to see us out on the floor.”

Durant made his Suns debut Wednesday at Charlotte. The Suns improved to 3-0 with him on the floor Sunday as he hit the game winner with 12.4 seconds left against the Mavs.

“The calmness that he has in those moment was the thing I was aware of,” Suns coach Monty Williams said. “Everybody else is kind of frantic in those moments.”

Going left, Durant rose up over Tim Hardaway Jr., who was boding him, and knocked down his patent midrange jumper.
