Kevin Durant with the vicious throw-down on Suns’ Morris (VIDEO)

Feb 9, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

Showing highlights of one of the best teams in the league putting the wood to one of the worst seems a little crass, but when we’re talking about a play like this from one of the game’s biggest stars, it simply can’t go unnoticed.

Midway through the second quarter of a game the Thunder ended up winning by 31 points, Kevin Durant brought the ball up court, and sized up his options. After Michael Beasley was neutralized by a fairly innocuous screen from Hasheem Thabeet, Durant exploded off the dribble, with only Markieff Morris standing between him and the basket.

Durant elevated over Morris, and threw down a slam from the baseline that almost didn’t even seem possible from that angle.

It’s tough to tell if it was technically a dunk, or if it was simply a throw-down resulting from being too far out but yet high enough above the rim to get it to go down. But either way, it was two points in spectacular fashion for Durant in another easy win for OKC.
