With 11.1 seconds left, Kevin Durant came up with a long two to put the Oklahoma City Thunder up by one point over the Memphis Grizzlies, because he is Kevin Durant and does those kind of things.


Durant's game-winning shot came after a turnover by Mike Conley with a 90-89 lead, the correct call by referee Bill Kennedy on a controversial out-of-bounds play.

Oklahoma City wasn't totally in the clear after that, though. Reggie Jackson fouled Quincy Pondexter behind the three-point arc, giving the Grizzlies a chance to tie up the game after Jackson made two free throws for a 93-90 Thunder lead. Pondexter missed two of his three free throws, though, the Thunder escaped with a 1-0 lead in the series.
