Enes Kanter played only 10 minutes on Friday, finishing with 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting and adding two rebounds and a block.
This just isn’t Kanter’s series. There’s not a ton to match up with for the plodding big, and his deficiencies as a pick and roll defender make it hard for him to hang on that end of the floor. The fact that he was able to score so efficiently should come as a win to his playoff owners, and it’s looking like he won’t be paying any dividends unless the Thunder can get into round two.
