Enes Kanter was drug tested after recording career-high six blocks
Enes Kanter is not exactly known as a defensive dynamo, so his exceptional game on that end this week definitely drew some attention.
After recording 13 points, 14 rebounds, and a career-high six blocks in a win over the Charlotte Hornets, the Boston Celtics big man tweeted on Thursday that he got drug tested.
Got 6 blocks for the first time in my career and now about to get Drug tested

The 27-year-old Kanter has a reputation as a huge turnstile on defense, averaging 0.8 blocks per game this season and just 0.5 per game for his career. His previous career-best in that category was four, which he accomplished three times.
It has been a season of curiously-timed drug tests in the NBA, as recent weeks also saw another veteran get tested after an out-of-character feat.
