Kevin Durant carried the Oklahoma City Thunder to another victory on Friday night, leading his team to a double overtime win which sunk the Toronto Raptors. The leading candidate for this season’s MVP dropped 51 points, including the game-winning three-pointer.
Down 118-116 with just 8.8 seconds left to play, the Thunder needed a game-changing play. Jeremy Lamb received the ball at the top of the key, who quickly dished it off to Durant by half-court. After taking two dribbles toward the basket, KD pulled up in Amir Johnson‘s face and banged home the trey with just 1.7 seconds remaining on the clock, securing the victory for Oklahoma City.
He also made history in the process:
Kevin Durant just became the first player in NBA history w/ 51 points, 12 rebounds, 7 assists & 7 three-pointers in one NBA game.
