‘Rucker Park Durant’: Sports world in awe of Kevin Durant’s Game 5


KD’s historic 49-point triple-double gives Nets 3-2 series lead (4:39)

Kevin Durant drops 49 points, grabs 17 rebounds and dishes 10 assists to help the Nets rally to a comeback win vs. the Bucks. (4:39)

Kevin Durant showed out in Game 5 for the Brooklyn Nets.

He played all 48 minutes against the visiting Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night, and he looked unstoppable in a 114-108 win that gave the Nets a 3-2 lead in this Eastern Conference semifinal series. Durant finished with 49 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists, and Twitter couldn’t do anything but respect what he accomplished.

From LeBron James and Allen Iverson to Patrick Mahomes and Saquon Barkley, all eyes were on Durant. And to use his own line to describe this performance, just as Damion Lee did, it was a “spiritual experience.”

GREATNESS!! Appreciate it while you can people! #KD
