NBA Kicks: BG32′s 35 POwers 40-Point Clips Win

Blake Griffin didn’t commit one foul last night. After six relatively easy whistles from the refs limited the star forward to just 16 points in 19 minutes for Game 1, Griffin bounced back with a game-high 35 points to lead the Clippers to a more than convincing 138-98 blowout win in Game 2. Griffin again stepped on the floor in his Jordan Brand-issued Super.Fly 2 PO in white/red, complete with the BG wings logo on each tongue. This run-and-gun first round series resumes on Thursday night in Oakland at Oracle Arena (10:30pm ET, TNT).

Earlier in the evening, out in Oklahoma City, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook did their level best to score the Thunder past Memphis for a 2-0 series lead, only there was one problem — they couldn’t stop the Grizz from notching timely buckets, resulting in a 111-105 overtime victory for Memphis and a 1-1 split heading back to FedEx Forum for Game 3 on Thursday night (8:30pm ET, TNT.) KD opted for his regular season Nike KD VI for 36 points, 11 boards and 4 assists, while Russ recorded 29 points, 7 rebounds, 8 assists, and one steal in the Air Jordan XX9 “OKC Home” colorway. Memphis got 25 from Z-Bo in his Nike Hyperdunk 2013 PEs, matching nicely to Mike Conley’s 19 points, 7 rebounds, and 12 assists in the adidas Crazyquick 2.

You’ll find all these sneakers and more in a quick NBA Kicks recap here. (watch for D-Fish in the Nike KD VI Elite, too)…

Wasn’t there a story here on Counterkicks, or perhaps it was Sole Collector, about Kevin Durant loving his Elite shoe so much, that “he didn’t want to take them off”?

What happened? It seems that he has taken them off!

I was thinking the same thing.

I like the regular KD VI much better, so I’m happy he stuck to the regular KD VI, that colorway is supernice(goes great with the Dutch Oranje Uni’s too :P )

Mede, that anecdote surfaced in the release press for the shoe and Charles Williams told me that in the Nike BB Elite interview a couple weeks back.

I expected KD to be guns blazing in his Elites but who knows. Could be something as simple as he just likes the regular KD VI colorway at the moment. I doubt he has any issues with the Elite.

Okay.

You are correct, it could be anything.

Thumbs up!
