Durant dunked on by Jeff Teague (VIDEO)
by Adi Joseph, USA TODAY Sports
Kevin Durant was two assists shy of his first career triple-double Sunday night. He had 22 points, 12 rebounds, eight assists, three steals, two blocks and little help from his Oklahoma City Thunder teammates in a 104-95 loss to the Atlanta Hawks.
But he got dunked on. By a 6-2 guard.
Jeff Teague doesn’t get mentioned among the many up-and-coming point guards around the NBA these days. But the former Wake Forest star is a quiet beast, a freak athlete who is sharpening his skills. He had 16 points, five assists, three rebounds and three steals in the win, while helping to hold Russell Westbrook to 5-for-18 shooting.
And he dunked on Durant. Really, really hard.
Durant’s one of the best in the NBA. But he’s 6-9. Teague is 6-2.
Remember the “A-Town Stomp”?
