Twitter reacts to Kevin Durant dropping 51 points in loss to Raptors

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Golden State Warriors lost to the Toronto Raptors on Thursday. But star Kevin Durant could hardly have played any better.

He scored 51 in the overtime loss, showing off some incredible range in the process.

Toronto led for essentially the entire game. But despite absolute blanket coverage from Kawhi Leonard, Durant sent the game into overtime with a three.

While the Warriors lost, Twitter heaped a lot of praise onto Durant.



It was Durant’s third consecutive game with 40-plus points. Remember, this was despite always attracting the other team’s top defensive effort. Just imagine how open it will be for Durant when Stephen Curry returns on Saturday.
