It may be a hard pill to swallow, but Washington Wizards center Marcin Gortat received 25,000 more All-Star votes this season than Kevin Durant.
Sure, Gortat’s having a solid campaign (12.3 PPG, 8.2 RPG), but come on, this is Kevin Durant we’re talking about here.
On Wednesday night Durant got the last laugh on the Mohawked Pole, tying the game in overtime on an in-your-grill dunk that Marcin won’t soon forget:
OKC went on to win the game and improve to (22-20).
The Thunder may have got off to their worst start in a long time but come playoff time they’ll be a dark horse favourite regardless of their final seed (provided that they’re healthy).
TOO EASY! Russell Westbrook hits layup with 0.8 sec left in OT and Thunder beat Wizards, 105-103. • Kevin Durant: 34 Pts • Westbrook: 32 Pts
