Kevin Durant took the praise for Nicolas Claxton to twitter. He said, “Still can’t believe he got this block. Three three (Claxton wears the No. 33) been locked in.

After Claxton recorded three or more blocks in the last 11 games, he added himself in the conversation of the Defensive Player of the Year. He was selected as the 31st overall pick in the 2019 NBA draft but could not prove a point to the due to his hamstring injury. Whereas, in the 2022-23 season, he is now amongst the contenders for the Most Improved Player.

Nicolas Claxton trolled by Reggie Miller

The Brooklyn Nets are down and out without their main man Kevin Durant. Even while facing the Phoenix Suns without Devin Booker and Chris Paul. As a matter of fact, Nets’ Claxton is not known as a good shooter from the free throw line.

“He didn’t need to do it! Shoot regular because you’re gonna miss it anyway! If he would’ve shot it regular, he would’ve missed it, and they would have had a better opportunity to tip it back.”

Reggie Miller couldn’t hold back and roasted the Brooklyn center for his free throw abilities. He meant a player who can anyway not shoot a free throw should not try intentionally missing it.
