Lil B took credit for a crucial Kevin Durant missed three

Sunday February 7th, 2016

The Warriors held off the Thunder 116–108 on Saturday night, and rapper Lil B thinks he may know why.

Lil B, who placed the ‘Based Gods Curse’ on Durant long ago for refusing to play him one-on-one in basketball, taunted Durant after he missed a long three that could have put the Thunder ahead by two with under three minutes to play.

“Kevin durant is so cursed by "The BasedGod" why would he shoot the ball that far away?” Lil B asked in a tweet. “And Westbrook? Keep letting him shoot lol - Lil B.”

Lil B is a fan of Golden State, so he’s especially thrilled that Durant struggled down the stretch on Saturday. Durant finished with 40, but couldn’t put his team over the top late.

You can’t escape the Based God.
