Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Earns Praise From Kevin Durant

The Golden State dynasty moved one game closer to the quarterfinals on Sunday with a 113-105 win against the Clippers. The bright spot for Kentucky fans was definitely Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and his team high 25 points. This effort prompted Kevin Durant to tell reporters “He played with no fear and that’s what kept them in the game most of the game”. Huge praise by one of the best in the game! Enes Kanter and the Trail Blazers are now one game away from the quarterfinals after beating the Thunder and Jodie Meeks saw some action as the Raptors pushed the series to 3-1 last night. It is possible that each quarterfinals matchup will have at least one Wildcat on playing or on the roster (Cousins could still come back in the finals according to sources).

All the game 3s are complete so let’s look at how our Kentucky boys did.
