Showing highlights of one of the best teams in the league putting the wood to one of the worst seems a little crass, but when we’re talking about a play like this from one of the game’s biggest stars, it simply can’t go unnoticed.
Midway through the second quarter of a game the Thunder ended up winning by 31 points, Kevin Durant brought the ball up court, and sized up his options. After Michael Beasley was neutralized by a fairly innocuous screen from Hasheem Thabeet, Durant exploded off the dribble, with only Markieff Morris standing between him and the basket.
