Kevin Durant went OFF against the Timberwolves in Minnesota last night, scoring a season-high 48 points in a win over the Wolves. Twenty-three of the those points came in the game’s final quarter, including the go-ahead stepback jumper (above) with 4 seconds left.
Despite Durant’s clutch shot and huge performance, the Thunder were very lucky to escape Minnesota with the victory. After KD put OKC up by two points, Kevin Love was fouled while attempting a game-winning three pointer on the ensuing posession.
At the free throw line with a chance to give his team the lead, Love missed all three free throws. The third miss came intentionally, but even that was screwed up…Love drilled the backboard but the ball never touched the rim, causing a dead ball and giving the Thunder possession.
Oklahoma City won 115-111.
