This is Luke Kennard’s second dunk of the season, if you believe basketball-reference which I do because what other choice do I have, really? The first one was against the Heat, where Kennard also scored thirteen points but for some reason I didn’t make a highlight video. So, first of all I want to apologize for my negligence in not making that video, and second of all I feel justified in putting “1 dunk” in the title of the video because it’s not like Kennard is a dunk factory or anything, so this might be one of the first things that comes up when you do a YouTube search for “Luke Kennard dunk”.
This game was a blowout from pretty much the middle of the second quarter, so it would have been reasonable to expect Kennard to play more than seventeen minutes and put up more than nine shots, but at some point in the fourth quarter he got subbed out for Henry Ellenson. This is progress for Kennard: he’s the one getting subbed out of games when it’s a blowout. Previously he was the one getting subbed in right at the end when the score was out of reach. If things continue at this rate he’ll be the starter by March. Would that even be so bad?
