What we have here is an example of a basic offensive move made against a defense that had called it quits. Kevin Durant is able to turn the corner on Matt Barnes even though Derek Fisher slips the pick, and Pau Gasol decides to open up a lane to the basket by unnecessarily concerning himself with Fisher. Once Durant gets an angle on Gasol, Andrew Bynum says “f@ck it” and KD easily leaps right past the sloth-like forward. A borderline poster of the fly-by variety, but it gets the job done on a four-game night.
Like I said, a borderline poster… but the highlight department was slacking last night. Derek Fisher made the top 10, for f@ck’s sake.
