Kevin Durant in Monaco? It was necessary that to live a victory in Playoffs
Just swept away by the Celtics in the Playoffs, Kevin Durant is already on vacation, and so far he hasn’t chosen Punta Cana, Santo Domingo, or Hawaii as a vacation spot to stay after his messed up Playoffs, but… …Monaco!
You are going to say to us “but what was KD doing in principle on an April evening? “. Well, he reveled in match 4 of the Euroleague quarter-finals between AS Monaco and Olympiakos at the Salle Gaston-Médecin. Indeed, his friend Mike James, also his former teammate with the Nets, plays for the Monaco club. The latter therefore invited the prisoner to Jayson Tatum and co. to come and encourage him and his teammates, to try to snatch a decisive match 5 to be played on the floor of Olympiakos.

This is also what happened since it was Mike James himself who scored the basket which again put the Monegasques in front of the Greeks a few seconds from the end. The former Nets point guard recovered well after his complicated Game 3, and scored 18 points, grabbed 6 rebounds and distributed 4 assists. Monaco wins with a score of 78 to 77 and will return to Piraeus to try to snatch the decision in hostile ground. For his part, KD was also able to take a little walkabout and measure his speed rating in France, while taking some photos with Prince Albert, Bébert as no one calls him.

Beyond his quickdraw of a worker who leaves the site and has not had time to change, Kevin Durant also shows that he loves the game, and that he likes to see his friends playing basket. He did indeed seem very involved in celebrating each basket of the Monegasques, it must be said that KD finally had the opportunity to celebrate his first victory in the Playoffs, an episode that reminds us of Giannis Antetokounmpo’s passage to… Feurs, to see him play son little brother Kostas.
Yes, Kevin Durant was indeed more prominent at the Gaston-Médecin room in Monaco to encourage his friend than during the last Playoffs against Boston where he had to get rid of the fierce defense of the Celtics. In any case, Durantula enjoyed the show so much that he should even travel to Greece to attend Game 5.
