The best line I read about this dunk (and I couldn’t find the tweet later to credit the person) was that Kevin Durant used Brendan Haywood as his own personal Kia.

The Thunder were struggling and this dunk sparked them and was the first step to them evening this series. One dunk does not a win make, but this was a turning point fo Oklahoma City.

Be sure to notice just how bad a job Peja Stojakovic does on defense to start this play. And then marvel at the best dunk of the playoffs.

    Does anyone else notice that Haywood shoved KD and he was getting up to get in his face. Refs should ahve called a Tech on that one.

    This dunk wasn’t just on Brendan Haywood; Greg Oden was in a nursing home somewhere and it made him fall out of his wheelchair.

    Good to see KD can get that look in his eyes when hes ready to take a game over. Thats a superstar quality right there
