A quick look at seven other big shots that Durant said are memorable.

GAME-WINNER AT ATLANTA

The date: Nov. 16, 2007

The play: Durant called it a fluke, but that doesn't make it less impressive. Durant caught an inbounds pass from Wally Szczerbiak at the top of the arc with just 2.1 seconds showing on the game clock. With a Hawks defender closing, Durant had to double clutch but still knocked down the dagger. It was Durant's first buzzer-beating game-winner of his career.

The result: Sonics 126, Hawks 123 in double overtime.

MELO TOO MUCH

The date: Jan. 2, 2009.

The play: Durant buried a clutch 3-pointer with 2.7 seconds remaining. But Denver Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony answered with a 3-pointer of his own with 0.1 tenths of a second left for the game-winner.

The result: Nuggets 122, Thunder 120.

GO-AHEAD JUMPER AT NEW YORK

The date: Feb. 20, 2010

The play: Durant isolated Wilson Chandler at the top of the arc, crossed over to his left into a two-dribble pull-up at the foul line and canned a jumper with 16.8 seconds left. It gave the Thunder a one-point lead before Durant iced it with two foul shots.
