Does Durant deserve a pass?

With Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook at the helm, the Thunder were a strong favorite to win the Western Conference for the second consecutive season. But after Westbrook's season-ending injury, the workload fell all on Durant's shoulders. Unfortunately he couldn't bear the weight and Oklahoma City loss 4-1 to the Grizzlies. How would you grade his performance? Does the postseason's leading scorer deserve a pass for not getting his team to the next round?

How would you grade Kevin Durant's performance (28.8 PPG, 6.6 APG, 10.4 RBG, 42.1 FG%, 77.6 FT%) in the Thunder's playoff series against the Grizzlies?
