“The Lord was with us,” Durant said of the shot. “That’s all I was thinking. I knew as soon as that shot hit the back rim, I was thinking not again. Tough three I shot. Maybe I should have drove. Maybe I should have got a foul. But, it was able to bounce in.”
James Harden probably agrees that KD had some special assistance from above as he called KD’s 3 pointer with 41.9 seconds a “lucky shot.”
I would tend to call shots like that lucky too but not when it’s taken by one of the league’s best players on a night where he matches his playoff career high in points.
