Young on Thunder: ‘David Bested Goliath’
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant brought the team with the NBA’s best record to his home town, and the expectation was that it would be a pushover against the team with the league’s worst record.
“Nobody expected it, that’s what it was. David bested Goliath,” (Nick) Young said after scoring 19 of his 24 points in the final 17 minutes to help the Wizards overcome a 10-point deficit and their own nerves.
Despite missing eight free throws in the fourth quarter, the Wizards (2-12) showed enough hustle and scrappiness to pull out the most unlikely victory and snap a four-game losing streak.
