Kevin Durant has long arms, can play some defense

In case you hadn’t seen it, here are Kevin Durant’s two blocks to save the game for Team USA against Spain. In a very smart move, the USA switched defense to a zone on the final possession, and that caught Spain by surprise and cut off the drive. Check out a great breakdown of that last possession over at NBA Playbook. (Funny that a Duke guy like Mike Krzyzewski wins a game switching defenses on the last play, which is something Dean Smith liked to do.)
