Kendrick Perkins sets a hard pick on Carmelo Anthony (GIF)


The Oklahoma City Thunder hosted the New York Knicks and handed them yet another loss. Thunder small forward Kevin Durant had another stand out game scoring 41 points, while recording 10 rebounds and nearly a triple-double with nine assists. Durant also had one steal and two blocks.

Thunder center Kendrick Perkins helped free up Durant with some big picks, like this one on Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony. It looked like Anthony had no idea it was even coming and just ran into a wall. He even grabs Perkins jersey to keep from falling.

Perkins for his part didn’t try to push off with his arms or anything, just set the pick and leaned in a bit.

Anthony had 15 points in 36 minutes with seven rebounds and five assists.
