Kevin Durant has been historic so far this season and last night, the 35-year-old ended up with the game-winning block against the Jazz.

However, his block was originally called a foul and left a huge debate on social media of why the referees overturned the call. The Suns (7-6) won 140-137, so this would have been three free throws for Lauri Markkanen and a chance to tie the game.

Durant responded to one of these thoughts on the block. A fan said that it would have stayed a foul had it been Markkanen fouling KD and not the other way around.

Durant, who is averaging an incredible 31.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and 5.5 assists on 53/48/87 splits so far this season, also spoke on the call with the media at the end of the game.
