Check Out The Epic Showdown Between KD vs Kawhi – Part I
In what may very well be one of the best games thus far this season, we saw two of the planet’s best athletes go at each other for a full game. We could have been watching a finals preview. Imagine watching the Finals and seeing Drake every other commercial break. Crazy right?!
The game went to overtime and the matchup went to the moon and back. Toronto controlled the night for the most part but Durant wouldn’t go quietly. With just under 5 to go and the raptors nursing a 7-point lead, the warriors battled til the end and sent the game to overtime.
Kawhi finished with 37 pts, 8 rebs and 3 asts, while KD finished with a whopping 51 pts, 11 rebs and 6 asts. Kevin Durant continues his exuberant streak of setting new season highs, I wonder what he will do next. The Toronto Raptors have the best record in the NBA and something about them seems a bit different this season. Having a Finals MVP does definitely change things, but far too often we’ve seen The North collapse in the playoffs. Not this year.
Kawhi doesn’t shy away from the spotlight, he is going to guard your best player. Although Kevin Durant dropped a 50 ball, Kawhi made several key stops to get his team the win. The Warriors are a different team with Steph Curry in the lineup so we won’t rush to any obscene conclusions but man does the Raptors give you hope or what?
Watch the match-up below. Who do you think will make it to the finals this year? Let us know in the comments and have a great Friday!
