I’m not sure if all the Kevin Durant crossover and dunk finishes in the world is enough for the Thunder to beat Memphis, but as long as the series goes. KD spike jams like this one will always have a home on this blog.
“I just wanted to get up the floor as quick as possible and find a shot. That was the only shot I could find and, by the grace of God, it went in.” – Kevin Durant
No Westbrook. No problem. Riding solo, Kevin Durant ran wild on the Rockets dropping 41 points in Houston. Which includes this rather large dunk on Omer Asik who tried his best to go as high as KD for the block, but ran out of floors in his elevator. As impressive as this dunk was, this shot was even better.
“I’ve been second my whole life,” said Durant. “I was the second-best player in high school. I was the second pick in the draft. I’ve been second in the MVP voting three times. I came in second in The Finals. I’m tired of being second. I’m done with it.” – Kevin Durant, perennial MVP candidate and silver medal hater
If you’re placing a heavy bet with a bookie who has no access to Instagram that Carmelo Anthony will beat out Kevin Durant for the scoring title. Put it all on Melo cause earlier today via his @sniperjones35 account, KD announced he will sit out tonight’s game.
“SITTING OUT TONIGHT’S GAME, if you disappointed I didn’t try to go for the scoring title, oh well!!”
Melo will also rest tonight which puts his season average at 28.7 points per game, while Durant’s season ending average sits at 28.7 points per contest. Congrats Melo!
