NIGHTLY PRO NOTABLES: Nuggets Tie Up Clippers, Tough New KAWHI Sneakers – September 5, 2020

Welcome to Nightly Pro Notables: a collection of the hottest sneakers and biggest moments of the night on September 5, 2020.

On this day, we saw comebacks from the Raptors and Nuggets to even both playoff series. The Raptors vs. Celtics game saw a series of sensational blocks. Additionally, we saw some tough new KAWHI sneakers.

Without further ado, check the best highlights and sneakers from another night in the Orlando NBA bubble.


PRO PERFORMANCES

Jamal Gets Clippers Back

After getting blown out in game 1, the Denver Nuggets stormed back to pretty handily beat the Clippers to tie the series. Jamal Murray was the high-point man with 27 points on the night. This includes 3 on a nasty stepback on Kawhi Leonard:

The adidas Crazy 98 BYW in Summit White that Murray wore this can be found at GOAT.

Joker Gets the Last Laugh

The Clippers were content to back off Nikola Jokic to cut off his passing ability. The Joker made LA pay. The damage: 26 points and 18 rebounds on 4/5 three-point shooting.

Nikola rocked the Nike Hyperdunk X, which you can find at StockXFlight Club, and GOAT.


PRO HIGHLIGHTS

Harris Takes Beverley’s Ankles

Murray wasn’t the only Nugget to pull off a stepback, as teammate Gary Harris had Patrick Beverley’s ankles wobbling on this triple.

Gary wore a red and yellow Nike Zoom Freak 1, which isn’t available. You can find other colors at DicksSportingGoods.com.

Block Party, Toronto Edition

Getting his Mutombo finger-wag on was Serge Ibaka, who absolutely erased Daniel Theis’ dunk attempt at the rim.

The adidas Mad Bounce 2018 that Serge laced up this game can be found at StockX.

Block Party, Celtics Edition

A spectacular block on the other side of the Toronto vs. Boston game came from the Celtics best defender. Fred Van Vleet looked to lay the ball up on this fast break, but Marcus Smart was scouting him the whole time. The Celtics guard elevated perfectly and swatted the ball completely out of bounds.

The white, orange and pink Puma Clyde Hardwood Retro Fantasy can be found at StockX and GOAT.

If you know about the all-black Air Force 1 memes, you’ll understand the grit that comes with rocking blackout sneakers on the court. Kawhi did just that with his signature New Balance The KAWHI sneaker tonight. This shoe will release officially in the fall.

Kyle Lowry to the Lakers Confirmed

Speaking of memes, the -insert player- to the Lakers confirmed joke has it’s next candidate in Kyle Lowry. All joking aside, the Raptors guard did wear a very Los Angeles oriented colorway today, with purple and gold throughout his adidas Harden Vol. 4. This Su Casa Pack Lakers colorway can be found at StockX and GOAT.
