Wednesday night was not a pleasant one for Vince Carter or the Dallas Mavericks. In addition to losing to the Oklahoma City Thunder for the eleventh straight time, veteran swingman Vince Carter found himself on the wrong end of two impactful moments.
Carter wasn’t ever known as a premier defender (despite his insane athleticism) during his prime, but as he’s aged, he’s become what you’d call a liability. Granted, there aren’t many players in the league who can guard with Durant in a one on one scenario, though, the former Texas Longhorn made Carter look extremely foolish on a sick crossover which ended in a nifty lay-in by Durant.
In fairness to Vince, I’d probably have elbowed somebody to get ejected after that too.
It wouldn’t have been so bad had Carter not swiped, but he looked like he needed a GPS out there.
