What’s up with Kevin Durant this evening?
On Wednesday evening, the NBA world couldn’t believe what they watched from the Brooklyn Nets superstar.
In Game 2 of the first-round series, Durant, probably the best player in the world, was agitated by the Celtics’ pressure defense. The Nets’ star has turned the ball over five times and has only made four field goals.
It’ll be a complex series for the Nets if this is the Durant they get.
KEVIN DURANT HAS TURNED INTO A NIGHTMARE. COMPLETELY OVERWHELMED AND OVERMATCHED BY A CELTS DEFENSE THAT’S TURNING HIM INTO A TURNOVER MACHINE. PULL YOUR HEAD OUT, MAN.

I do not remember Durant being so loose with the ball

Kevin Durant now knows what it’s like to be defended like Steph Curry

I don’t recall ever seeing KD struggle handling the ball like this since OKC days
Weirdest part of these first 2 games for me

What the hell is wrong with KD with all these damn turnovers. Jesus Christ!

KD now has 10 turnovers in a game and a half. Boston D is working.

KD just looks so out of synch. Boston’s physicality has been very effective against him in this series.
