Watching Kevin Durant play offense has always been a treat, mostly because of the fact that he’s nearly seven-feet with the scoring ability of a guard. This means that he can pull off some of the silliest stuff that you’ll ever see when he has the ball in his hands. An example of that came during Oklahoma City’s game against Cleveland on Thursday night. Durant had the ball in the corner, managed to get past his defender, and went up for a layup while Timofey Mozgov was standing right in front of him.
Instead of going into the contact and trying to draw a foul, Durant basically went behind the hoop while he was in the air. He then used his ridiculously long reach to convert an up-and-under that looked way easier than it actually was, because Kevin Durant is insane.
