Blake Griffin perfectly sums up why Kevin Durant is as good as ever after his win over Philly.
Blake Griffin could have been the talk the night before the game due to his custom ‘McLovin’ boots but once the ball popped it was all Kevin Durant. With several players in the COVID protocol for the Brooklyn Nets, the 2014 MVP brought quite a bit of burden to the attack.
Well, ‘burden’ isn’t exactly the right word to use when you’re KD dropping 35 points or more all night. Not only did he keep the Nets’ heads above the water, but he left them firmly seated at number one seed in the East.
Kevin Durant is standing shoulder to shoulder with Steph Curry, his former teammate at the Golden State Warriors, in the 2022 NBA MVP race and deserves to be. He is putting his normal, otherworldly 29.7 on a match with amazing performance (52.3 FG%) and is doing so on some of the hardest shots you have try to perform in a basketball game.

Tied at 101 and 3:10 remaining in the game, Kevin Durant continued the game with a 3s clutch, 2 pull-ups and a key assist for Blake Griffin for what could be considered a triple dagger. . It was a classic performance by Durant, and it was clear that Griffin wowed them all.
“He is the most unaffected basketball player (by defenders) of all time. They have some good defenders on that team [Sixers], and he was clearly everyone’s best defender every night. He just went over and shot it as if no one was there. Griffin said.

Kevin Durant is a near-seven-legged guy with guardian-like abilities like a cheat code you might hope to actually exist in the real world. KD attacking defenders has been a thing for over a decade. He finished LeBron James in the NBA Finals. Twice. So obviously he’s going to do it Tobias Harris in the regular season.
