Watch Kevin Durant’s game winner in dramatic slo-mo (VIDEO)

May 6, 2013, 2:11 AM EDT

Kevin Durant is cold blooded.

With the game on the line Durant was the best player on the floor and led the dramatic comeback that gave Oklahoma City Game 1 of the best of seven series against Memphis. Then he sank the game winner. What you see above is Durant’s winning shot in slow-motion, thanks to the fine folks at NBA.com.

What I love about this play is that Scott Brooks doesn’t call a timeout, he lets his best player create on the floor, and by Durant pushing the ball up in transition the very good Memphis defense never gets set. Sometimes you can overcoach, Brooks didn’t there and it worked.

    Cold blooded is an understatement.

    If it weren’t for Gervin I think Durant should have had the monicker “The Ice Man” instead.

    D. Fish may not be a go to guy (never was) and he may be slower than he used to be, but last night he showed precisely why the Thunder have signed him twice in the last two seasons.

    In the 4th quarter of games, D. Fish was a “go to player”. The LAKERS trusted him explicitly.

      I differ in interpretation: Yes, he was trusted explicitly. But that was because he was clutch without the label and everything that goes along with it.

      awwwwwwwwww, you crushin
      Fish is great but he was not a go to player, Shaq and Kobe.

      The word you’re looking for is implicitly.
