Kevin Durant reacts to Blake Griffin’s clutch kick: “This is what we need from him”

It’s been a tough start to the new season for Brooklyn Nets big man Blake Griffin, who was recently taken off the rotation after a poor period of play to start the year. Barely six months after registering 40 minutes in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, and scoring 17 points and 11 rebounds while being asked to protect Giannis, Blake found himself completely out of the Nets’ rotation. With several Brooklyn players recently entered into league health and safety protocols, Blake finally called his number again.

In the last two games as a starting Brooklyn forward, Blake has averaged 15 PPGs, 7 RPGs, and 4 APGs over 50% of the field. Taking on multiple charges and performing numerous other plays, Blake has apparently returned to his playoff form. To top off his solid play in those two games, a dagger three helped shut the Philadelphia 76ers off at home on Thursday.

Matt Brooks of NetsDaily reported After the game, Nets superstar Kevin Durant was asked about Blake’s shot and said, “Dude, that was a huge shot. That’s what we need from him.” Blake has struggled with his shot all year, but with Philly sending Durant an aggressive trap, he’s been left wide open.

The Brooklyn Nets are now 21-8 and are alone atop the Eastern Conference.
