Thunder games have a funny way about them sometimes. As in, they’re just kind of going along, minding their own business and out of nowhere, one of the best games you’ve ever seen in your life breaks out.
You know you just watched a classic when there’s a shot like what Kevin Durant hit with three seconds left in regulation and you forget all about it. We wouldn’t have, if it weren’t for Kevin Love, who decided to replay the 3-point contest and trump KD again by hitting a wild 3 with a second remaining to send the game to overtime.
KD though, had an answer to Love’s answer. Down three and on the brink, Durant did what we’ve all gotten pretty used to him doing — he drilled a massive shot in a do-or-die situation. The Thunder found a way to stop the Wolves and it was off to another extra session. And Oklahoma City had just enough left, getting stops, hitting shots, getting runouts for easy baskets and eventually outlasting Minnesota 149-140.
