Kevin Durant was motivated to not let the Oklahoma City Thunder eliminate another playoff game at home to Dallas.
He have scored 25 pts and hit the winning jumper from the nasty line with 1.5 a few moments departed to give the Thunder a 99-98 success over the Mavericks on Saturday evening in Game 1 of the first-round playoff series — a rematch of last seasons Western Conference finals.
The Thunder trailed by seven with 2½ moments departed before rallying to take the first thing toward avenging a 4-1 series loss a year ago.
With his team following by one overdue in the fourth quarter, he pressured his way toward the isle and discovered himself with defenders ending in and time rotating down.
Durant moving to the no cost toss range and got off a high-arcing taken over Shawn Marion that hit off the top side of the rim and then off the backboard before dropping through the net.
