KD lights up NYC with 41 points!



Kevin Durant just lit up Harlem Ruckers with 66 points, and went straight to NYC with a 41 point night! Summer League ball at Nike Pro City in NYC! He was outscored by his opponent John Lucas III, a Chicago Bulls guard, who scored 61 points. KD helped his squad, The Franchise, to a 146-143 victory over Lucas’ squad, Big Apple Basketball. KD wasn’t as sharp, but hit free-throws. Check it out!

“Should be broadcasted by everybody. Everybody should know. The way he played was unbelievable. He got it easier tonight than I got it last night. He had a hell of a game,” Durant said.

“I’m used to playing in the summertime every day,” Durant said. “It is what it is. I was working on some stuff. My shots from 3 weren’t falling but it happens.” – espn

“Nah, I was just playing ball,” said Lucas III when asked if he was trying to get back at Durant after his team was dominated by Durant the previous night. “Kevin’s a scorer. I can’t compete with him on the scoring tip. He’s 6-9. In a real game, this is what he do. He gets buckets.

“Me? I run the team, orchestrate the team and just make sure I knock down open shots. I’m not going to come down and do what I was doing tonight in a real game. It’s summertime. It’s all fun and games, but it kind of got competitive. He’d come bucket and say something to me. I’d come at him and say something to him. It was all for fun.” – espn
