Kevin Durant’s offseason exhibition exploits delivered another explosive chapter on Sunday afternoon, but this time with a surprisingly disappointing finish.

As had been rumored all week, KD showed up at the famous Drew League in Los Angeles, a popular summer spot where many NBA guys regular. And as expected, he stole the show, dropping 35 points and 17 rebounds for team LAUNFD (whatever that stands for), including the highlight dunk seen in the video above.

But going up against team Money Gang, led by DeMar Derozan and Metta World Peace, Durant’s team trailed by two in the closing seconds.

And in uncharacteristic fashion, the Oklahoma City star some refer to as Kid Clutch missed the potential game-winning three, as seen below, and gave First Take a lead topic for their Monday show (HAS KD LOST HIS CLUTCH GENE?!?!).

For all the basketball junkies with some time on their hands, here’s nine minutes of highlights from the game:
