The Golden State Warriors needed two clutch plays at the end of the game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. They got them, both against Pelicans star Anthony Davis.
First, Kevin Durant came up with a massive block with 35 seconds left.
As Davis split down after a dribble handoff, it was Durant who needed to slide over to contest Davis at the rim.
He did, and Davis got rejected:
Then, it was Davis again with the ball on the left side, but this time against Draymond Green.
As Davis backed down Green, he transferred toward the baseline with his gaze and that’s when Green — who is campaigning for Defensive Player of the Year — slapped the ball out of his hands for the steal.
Crazy end to a fun game.
Golden State beat New Orleans, 113-109.
