Kevin Durant is a Bad Mother Duck


February 16th, 2015 by aswitzer

I attended the February 9th Nuggets game against the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Pepsi Center with one of my long-time friends and his daughter.

At the end of the first half, Kevin Durant… “went off”. As in a frenzy of made 3’s, he went off. The Nuggets, who had dug a nice 20 point hole in the first quarter had cut into more than half that deficit with a fine 2nd quarter until the final 2:34.

Then, this happened:

2:34 Kevin Durant makes 26-foot three point jumper 60-49
2:19 60-49 Kenneth Faried misses two point shot
2:18 Russell Westbrook defensive rebound 60-49
2:10 Kevin Durant makes 25-foot three point jumper (Russell Westbrook assists) 63-49
1:59 Serge Ibaka shooting foul (Jusuf Nurkic draws the foul) 63-49
1:59 63-49 Jusuf Nurkic misses free throw 1 of 2
1:59 63-49 Nuggets offensive team rebound
1:59 63-50 Jusuf Nurkic makes free throw 2 of 2
1:46 Kevin Durant makes 26-foot three point jumper 66-50
1:32 66-50 Ty Lawson bad pass (Andre Roberson steals)
1:30 Russell Westbrook makes two point shot (Andre Roberson assists) 68-50
1:15 68-52 Wilson Chandler makes driving layup
1:01 68-52 Wilson Chandler personal foul
(Kevin Durant draws the foul)
1:01 Kevin Durant makes free throw 1 of 3 69-52
1:01 Kevin Durant misses free throw 2 of 3 69-52
1:01 Thunder offensive team rebound 69-52
1:01 69-52 Darrell Arthur enters the game for Jusuf Nurkic
1:01 Kevin Durant makes free throw 3 of 3 70-52
0:41 70-55 Ty Lawson makes 25-foot three point jumper
0:35 Kevin Durant makes 28-foot three point jumper (Russell Westbrook assists) 73-55

 

14 points in less than 2 minutes.

Then, Kevin felt the need to say something about his scoring explosion:

For those younger members out there, let’s just go with “I’m a bad Mother Duck” and leave it at that.

Needless to say, the Nuggets could never fully regroup and ended up losing 114-124.
