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.
The result: Thunder 121, Knicks 118 in overtime.
GAME-TYING SHOT AT PHILLY
The date: March 9, 2011
The play: Trailing by three with 12.4 seconds remaining in regulation, Durant curled off a Serge Ibaka screen and caught a pass from Russell Westbrook. He turned and swished a game-tying 3-pointer from the left win over Andre Iguodala with 6.2 seconds remaining.
The result: Thunder 110, Sixers 105 in overtime.
FLOATER AT FEDEXFORUM
The date: May 9, 2011
The play: Before the beautiful shake-and-bake stepback on Shane Battier, Durant extended the Thunder's lead to six with 58 seconds remaining by knocking down a floater in the lane.
The result: Thunder 133, Grizzlies 123 in triple overtime.
STEPBACK ON RUDY GAY
The date: Dec. 28, 2011
The play: After catching a pass just beyond the free throw line, Durant sized up Memphis forward Rudy Gay with a few jab steps. He then went left into a two-dribble pull-up and knocked down a high-arching stepback jumper over Gay that pushed OKC's lead to four with 35.4 seconds remaining.
The result: Thunder 98, Grizzlies 95
GO-AHEAD SHOT AT HOUSTON
The date: Jan. 7, 2012
The play: Durant caught a pass off a pick-and-pop play with Russell Westbrook at the foul line area and fired a rhythmic catch-and-shoot jumper over Chandler Parsons. It dropped to give the Thunder a one-point lead with 22.5 seconds remaining.
The result: Thunder 98, Rockets 95
