Kevin Durant dropped 17 points on the Heat in the fourth quarter of Game 1. He showed off the versatility that makes him the best scorer in the game — he back down the smaller Dwyane Wade and shot over him, he drained a three, he attack the rim in transition and threw it down. Durant can score just about anyway you please and the Heat had no answer (or at least no answer they went to regularly, how often do you see LeBron James on him in this video?).
It was a masterful performance. Durant owned the game when the game was on the line in the fourth quarter. Everyone in Chesapeake Energy Arena loved it.
