Video: Highlights of John Lucas III’s 60, Kevin Durant’s 41

Playing for the second straight night in New York City (albeit this time at Nike Pro City held at Baruch College, not Rucker Park), Kevin Durant scored 41 points, leading his team, The Franchise, to a 146-143 win. You’ve already seen pictures and his biggest dunk, but here’s a nice, concise highlight reel of Durant’s game last night.

Andre Barrett, Justin Burrell, Jessie Sapp and Sundiata Gaines combined to score 83 points for The Franchise. Roy Hibbert added 13 of his own.

John Lucas III led Big Apple with 60, and Paris Horne added 15 of his own.

Word has it Durant will be suiting up in NYC again tonight, this time at Dyckman park.

    Games like this just go to show you that even your run of the mill NBA “bum” is head and shoulders above most of these pro-am hoopers. But I’m sure someone will say “ANYONE can score 60 in one of these games.”

    random question: does anyone know if there is a football magazine out there, like a SLAM for football? if not, SLAM should start one

  • Oh Nose

    @Max wondering the same thing :\

    Really nice handle by Durant. Impressive.

    Didn’t he have only 9 at half? I was reading on Twitter that he was being heckled and called a bum for most of the game.

    @NBNick: No, I was there and he had at least 25 at the half.

    Who is John Lucas 3? He put up more than Durant?

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    Lucas got game like that? Cause he sucked on my Bulls last season.

    There is no defense being played Matic. Notice how there are no highlight blocks from these Pro-Ams? — Also, got dudes from Cal State Northridge killing the drew league. Northridge!?! dominating NBA players. Cuz there is no defense.

    Hibbert had 5 blocks at the half I think.

    Hibbert is 7’2, and the fact there is no defense leads guys right to the hoop. Where Hibbert was waiting. 5 Blocks in a 146-143 (289) Point game is not impressive either.

    The Bulls may need to give John Lucas some time. Given this wasn’t an NBA game, but it’s worth a shot.

  • LP

    why is a team with kevin durant and roy hibbert only winning a game by 3???

  • http://www.twitter.com/dfrance21 dfrance21

    NBK defense or not, its not easy to score 60 points in any game, or EVERYONE would have 60 points. you still have to make a lot of shots. I’m sure he didn’t score 30 uncontested layups.

  • http://www.twitter.com/dfrance21 dfrance21

    And why does this say video highlights of Lucas AND Durant and only Durant is featured?

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    They are PROFESSIONAL basketball players. Wide open shots from anywhere are easy. If you shoot enough of them you’ll score big points. There was 289 points in the game, obviously these guys aren’t playing any defense.

    @nbk i’m csun alumni man be cool. i know what u mean though lol

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    haha one of my good friends that I played HS with played at Northridge with “Money” Mike, they are both really really good basketball players, both play professionally overseas, but there is no way that in a game with defense, a guy who played at Northridge that isn’t good enough to play in the NBA should ever be able to stick with a whole team of professionals by himself. Which happened in week 7 of Drew League

  • William

    They both took a ridiculous amount of shots. Lucas 22-41, 6-19 3s, 10-11 FT. Durant 9-29. 2-12 3s, 21-23 FT
