What Kevin Durant did to the Los Angeles Clippers was analogous to a baseball player hitting a go-ahead home run before robbing someone else of one. Durant drained a 19-foot jumper with 5.8 seconds left before blocking a potential game-winning 18-footer by Chris Paul as time expired, and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Clippers 100-99 on Monday night.

“As a kid, I dreamed about hitting the game-winner,” Durant said. “No doubt, the block was good for our team. But as a kid, I wanted to hit the game-winner all the time. So I’ll take the game-winner over the block.”
