Kevin Durant drained a 3-pointer with six seconds left in regulation to help the Thunder rally from a six-point deficit with 1:01 remaining to force overtime.

Durant’s 3-pointer proved to be the key shot in the Thunder’s 121-118 win, their eighth consecutive win in what would stretch into a nine-game winning streak, the franchise’s longest in nearly six years.

After tying the game, Durant scored seven of his 36 points in overtime, including a 15-footer with 16 seconds left and two free throws with 10.2 seconds remaining.
