KD came through in the clutch on the road, helping Oklahoma City get the W against the Toronto Raptors.
Durant’s Thunder were down 116-118 in the second overtime with 8.8 seconds remaining. Raptors Forward Amir Johnson knew the ball was going to Kevin and fronted the Thunder inbound play. The ball was thrown to Jeremy Lamb up top, with Derek Fisher screening off Johnson to get KD free. Amir still tipped the ball near half-court, but Durant regained possession. The man took a few dribbles then lived up to his Easy Money Sniper Instagram handle. Durant pulled up feet from the three-point line with Johnson in his grill. Swish. The trifecta gave OKC the W, as Durant finished with 51 points on the night.
The sneakers Kevin Durant laced up for this cold-blooded game-winner was the Nike KD 6. This is one of the lowest-cut sneakers in the KD line. The collar along with the asymmetrical lacing drew visual comparisons to soccer cleats. What carried over from the KD 5 was the heel Air, forefoot Zoom Air set up for added impact protection and responsiveness. A synthetic Hyperfuse upper featured woven Flywire strands. This provided durability as well as added lockdown for a 1-to-1 fit.
