Durant’s 51 Points leads Thunder Past Raptors, 119-118 in Double O.T.
(TORONTO) — Kevin Durant led the way with 51 points for the Oklahoma City Thunder in their 119-118 double overtime win over the Toronto Raptors on Friday.
Durant hit a go-ahead 3 with 1.7 seconds left in the second overtime to give the Thunder a big win over one of the best team’s in the Eastern Conference.
“We never count ourselves out,” Durant said. “No matter what, we play until that last buzzer sounds. Fish hit a huge shot and by the grace of God, I let that one fly and I was able to hit it. These guys fought hard. We stuck together.”
Russel Westbrook left the game in the third quarter with a sprained right knee.
Toronto had a 118-110 lead with 49 seconds left, but Durant hit a three and Derek Fisher followed up with a long distance shot to set up the game winner.
“Down by eight with 49 seconds and some change left, the way our team is made up, the way they fight for each other, it’s never over,” Thunder head coach Scott Brooks said.
DeMar DeRozen had 33 points and eight rebounds in the tough loss and also missed the final shot of the game.
Kyle Lowry and Amir Johnson scored 25 a piece in the loss.
