Kevin Durant Lights Up Rucker Park

We’ve seen this before.

It doesn’t matter if Kevin Durant is in OKC, DC, L.A., NYC or Turkey. He’s going to score the basketball.

That’s what he did last night at the legendary Rucker Park in Harlem, N.Y. Over and over and over again.

Durant scored 66 points in an Entertainer’s Basketball Classic game. KD reportedly scored 43 points in the second half, including a flurry of 3s that brought the crowd to its feet and onto the court. Durant came two points shy of tying the EBC scoring record of 68. The Rucker Park scoring record of 74 points reportedly is held by Joe “The Destroyer” Hammond.
