The Golden State Warriors outrebounded the Memphis Grizzlies 70-44 in Game 6, thanks in large part to Kevon Looney’s 22 rebounds on the glass.
Klay Thompson called Looney the MVP during postgame, and also gave him a new nickname, Kevon Looajuwon.
(Via House of Highlights):
Thompson on Looney’s incredible Game 6 performance:
“I mean, 22 boards and 35 minutes, probably a season high. We needed every single one of those. Kevon was possibly our MVP tonight and, wow, just I’m so proud of him. He also had injury problems early in his career. Couple surgeries and for him to be out here doing this at the highest level, he’s going to be rewarded for it.”
Thompson gives Looney a new nickname:
“Kevon should go by Kevon Looajuwon because he was really just a freak out there. Guy has like elastic arms. He can just stretch.”
