Kevin Durant is one of the toughest players to guard in the NBA, with his ability to drain jumpers from all over the court, but also having the dribbling skills to drive the lane and score from close range.
Durant uses his long arms to essentially get whatever shot he wants, with opponents left just hoping that they’ll make it tough enough for him to miss.
He sure didn’t miss on one particular play late in the second quarter of Wednesday’s game against the Raptors, when he drove the lane — determined to get to the basket. Only Serge Ibaka stood between him and that goal, but Durant elevated and put the Raptors big man on a poster with a massive dunk.
Ibaka wasn’t even close to denying KD on that play, and he also appeared to make contact with the Warriors star’s arm, although no foul was called.
