Durant under duress: KD goes over both Mahinmi and Marion to get the victory with 1.5 seconds left.

The NBA playoffs opened to heightened drama and devastating injury Saturday that was capped off by the defending champion Dallas Mavericks on the cusp on stealing Game 1 in OKC. That was until KEVIN DURANT had the final say…

Durant’s fall away jumper against top defender Shawn Marion with 1.5 seconds remaining caught enough rim to garner a very favorable bounce and saved the Thunder from relinquishing home court advantage with a 99-98 victory in Game 1. It was the second time this season that Durant disappointed Dallas with late game heroics.

Even OKC big man Serge Ibaka got into the act, nailing this three-pointer at halftime that proved to be a huge play in the game…

The Mavericks have to be sick of watching Thunder buzzer beaters at this point. Now they’re down to a minimal of three games to do something about it.
