Marcin Gortat Describes Getting Dunked on By Kevin Durant

by January 15, 2013

Kevin Durant used a stutter-step to escape Michael Beasley last night, and then proceeded to climb Marcin Gortat for a vicious finish. As you might imagine, it was not a pleasant experience for the Polish Hammer. Gortat says there’s little he could do, and was a good sport about the whole thing when approached by reporters following the game. Per the Oklahoman and AZ Republic: “What can we do? Um, I don’t know,’ Phoenix center Marcin Gortat said afterward. ‘I am going to be silly right now, but maybe break his (Durant’s) arm, break his leg? You can’t do anything. You can double and triple him, he is still going to score. He is just amazing. We basically lost to Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. These two guys were just outstanding and they played great.’ […] ‘First of all I was looking for my keys underneath the basket,’ he said. ‘I lost them over there. I ain’t going to cry,’ he continued. ‘It’s part of the game. I already knew what was going on when he took off. I didn’t even lift my hands. I just tried to get out of the picture or at least smile.’ […] ‘I ain’t going to deny; that was probably one of the top three dunks of the year,’ Gortat said. Gortat then turned to teammate Shannon Brown, who was dressing in the next locker. ‘That be right?’ he asked Brown. ‘I would agree,’ Brown said.”
