If you haven’t seen the shot yet, enjoy it. If you’ve already seen it, enjoy it again. It’s pretty amazing. Below the video is a list of quotes about the shot from Davis, Monty Williams, Ryan Anderson, and Kevin Durant.
Anthony Davis: “I had to let it go and have confidence. I fell in the ground and saw it go through the net, I couldn’t get up quick enough…I don’t really know what to say right now. I’m still in shock. I just love playing this game.”
Pelicans coach Monty Williams:”He just made a great read. They came out and went zone and that freed up space for us to move around. With the movement, he popped free and made a great play. I wish I could say I drew that up but I didn’t. I drew up a play for him to get it in a different spot.”
Pelicans forward Ryan Anderson: “I mean that’s just a superstar shot. You rarely see a shot like that go in. Leave it to Anthony to make a ridiculous, double-clutch…it’s just crazy. He has the ability to make shots like that and it’s just unbelievable. That was a superstar play.”
Thunder forward Kevin Durant: “That was a tough shot. Double teamed, double clutch three ball to win the game. You’ve got to tip your hat to him.”
