Tobias Harris dunks at the buzzer to send Magic to win over Thunder (VIDEO)

Feb 7, 2014, 10:56 PM EDT

The Thunder built a lead that reached as many as 17 points in Orlando on Friday, only to see it all come crashing down on the game’s very last play.

The lead remained at double digits late in the third quarter, before the Magic slowly began to chip away. OKC was clinging to a one-point lead with under a minute to play, and Kevin Durant had two shots on consecutive possessions that could have pushed it to three.

But both rimmed out, and his final miss resulted in a fast break opportunity for the Magic — a three-on-one that ended with Tobias Harris throwing it down at the buzzer to give his team the improbable victory over one of the league’s top teams.

    Very entertaining game. I know a lot of people lost some money tonight.

    We going to get hit with “What’s Wrong With the Thunder” talk? SportsGuy? Wilbon? Skip? Zach? Colin?

    And while we’re at it, the Pacers needed OT to beat one of the better teams in the league. Surely they must be falling apart as well.

      The Thunder have a better record than the Heat, and completely humiliated the Heat on national TV, despite the fact that Russell Westbrook has missed most of the season and the Thunder play in the much tougher Western Conference.

      That’s why nobody is asking if the Thunder are in trouble. They’re doing extremely well despite missing an All-Star guard and having to rely on Jeremy Lamb and Reggie Jackson to run their offense when Durant sits.

        Dude. I’m ripping the media; not ripping the Thunder. Not the Pacers. You didn’t get that?

    That was dirtyness. You VERY rarely see a game winning dunk. Woww.

    KD would deserve a lot of blame here just for giving up after he missed the shot and not getting back on defense. But that wasn’t the only mistake he made. He set up a bad play – trying to get a switch on Vucevic in the wrong situation (or is that just a case of calling over the one white guy?) – and then he forced up a bad shot.

    A forced up double-teamed long jumper, much more often than not, is going to end up a long rebound. A long rebound gives your opponent a fast break opportunity. Then on top of that he stops playing. Oops.

    What separates lebron from kd at this point. Lebron would have gotten back on defense. KD just watched.

    Lamb should’ve fouled someone…

    Damn KD…..cant get back on D? Crappy way to go out.

      You do realize there is a reply for a certain comment, don’t you?

    KD is actually a great clutch shooter. But I’ve watched way too many times over the last two season plus in late game situations or important possessions where he doesn’t make the right basketball play. He over-dribbles into a double/triple team (and bail himself out sometimes) and/or ignore his open teammates. He forces things, its really my biggest complaint of him, and what I believe to be the biggest difference between KD and LeBron. LeBron believes in his teammates and while he has Bosh and Wade, KD’s crew even without Westbrook, deserve that same faith from KD too.

    Loved it!! It was a fun game to watch, even when the Thunder were up the Magic were scoring, just not getting it done on defense. What an ending, just what us suffering Magic fans needed. Something to believe in

    ORLANDO WINS THE TITLE! Oh, wait….

    • reastnt - Feb 8, 2014 at 11:59 PM

      KD acted like he thought his shot was at the buzzer. Was it just a confusion about the clock, or does he routinely not get back on D?
