Kevin Durant Not Impressed By Blake Griffin's Dunk

Thursday February 2nd, 2012

Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant was not impressed with Blake Griffin’s dunk over teammate Kendrick Perkins, according to ESPN.

"I wasn't surprised because Blake is a poster child," Durant said. "He dunks the ball a lot and makes spectacular plays. If it wasn't against us, maybe I'd say it was a good play, but it was against us, so it was a bad play. I have nothing against Blake, don't get me wrong. But it was against us, so I've got to stick up for my teammate."

Perkins, the victim of Griffin’s highflying dunk, expressed his opinion saying to reporters, "It was a layup, I think. He threw the ball in and got fouled and made his free throw. ... I really wasn't impressed.”

Griffin had 22 points in the 112-100 victory Monday night over the Thunder in L.A.  The win snapped the Thunder's four-game winning streak.
