Are you serious Ryan Kelly?! *Dickie V voice*

In all seriousness, the rookie continued to impress in tonight’s game against the San Antonio Spurs.

Kelly has surprised many with his ability to block shots so far this season, and tonight Boris Diaw was the latest to learn that the ex-Duke player can reject your field goal attempt every now and again.

Diaw put up a shot against the 22-year-old, who then blocked it, came up with the loose ball and went coast-to-coast for the layup in transition.

Kelly is averaging 10.1 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.1 blocks and 1.0 steal while shooting 52 percent from three-point range during the month of March, and is now one of the most productive rookies in the league this season.
