The Brooklyn Nets defeated the Washington Wizards in a blowout on Friday night.

The Nets won all four quarters in Washington as they won their third game of the season, and a lot of the credit for their win goes to their talisman Kevin Durant. Durant was at his best and continued in top form despite the distracting atmosphere at the Nets, as he put up a performance consisting of 28 points (highest in game), 9 rebounds and 11 assists.

Not only did Durant’s numbers that boosted the Nets to win the game by a comprehensive margin of 128-86 that was trending after the game, but it was also one particular moment that went viral following the game. The viral moment from the contest that was trending after the game was none other than an “iconic” Durant ankle breaker on Daniel Gafford.

It was in the first quarter of the game that the Nets and Durant started the game on the front foot, and Durant was particularly influential with his offensive play. So when Daniel Gafford was set the duty to mark Durant, KD’s quick feet and body feints were too quick for Gafford who was left helpless and on the floor by the change of direction as Durant found the bucket for two.

The clip of the moment went viral instantly, to the point that even LeBron James reacted to it.
