In the zone, Kevin Durant was too strong for the Pistons

“I wouldn’t say I’m surprised. He is on another level and he continues. He doesn’t slow down at all. » Edmond Sumner said almost everything to comment on the performance of Kevin Durant in Detroit.

The winger scored 43 points at 14/22 in shooting and 12/13 in free throws. Above all, in the third quarter, he wakes up the Nets with 26 points, while at the same time, the Pistons end the quarter with only 25 units…

“Usually I know how many shots I take,” explains the All-Star at ESPN. “When I forget, it’s because I’m really in the zone. I don’t know exactly how many shots I took or how many points I scored. It was going so fast that I couldn’t count. I didn’t think I had scored so much. But it was nice to give us energy and momentum. »

The Nets were actually trailing by 17 points at the break, so this hot shot did Brooklyn some good. Especially in the last minute when “KD” chained three baskets to 3-pts. Dwane Casey’s players could do nothing with such mastery.

“Mentally, I understand things better,” continues the former Warriors. “I am not surprised by the opposing defenses. I am on another level mentally compared to my younger years. I have fun, I shoot. »

And he goes even further into history since with his first points of the evening, he overtook John Havlicek then Paul Pierce in the ranking of the best scorers in history. With his 26,437 points, he is in 16th place.
