Kevin Durant with crossover, and-1 power dunk (VIDEO)

May 8, 2013, 2:05 AM EDT

Kevin Durant is doing all he can to lift the Thunder in the second round — he had 36 points on 21 shots, plus 11 rebounds and nine assists. All that wasn’t enough, the Grizzlies evened the series.

But Durant got to show off his improved handles, closing the third quarter with this sweet crossover move then and-1 throwdown. Durant really improved that part of his game this year, and that has been put to the test since Westbrook went down.

The Grizzlies have gone to a “anyone but Durant” can shoot defensive strategy. He still gets his points, but he has to work a lot harder to do it (and cut off the passing lanes to others.

    “Kevin Durant is doing all he can to lift the Spurs in the second round”

    The Spurs? Really man? I don’t even know how someone can make that mistake in the first place, let alone publish it.

    Spurs should put Kevin Durant on Steph Curry next game.

    @willisreedsghost, don’t you worry about the LAKERS…they won’t be down for long, sir. Now, as for Mr. Durant, he was downright scintillating last night. That dunk was filthy.

    That’s a called foul for superstars only. The majority of baskets in a game involve more contact than that.

    Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, David Stern.
