Kevin Durant scores 51, hits game-winner in double overtime win over Raptors (VIDEO)

Mar 21, 2014, 10:44 PM EDT

Kevin Durant ended a wild double-overtime contest against the Raptors on Friday by hitting a long three-pointer with under two seconds remaining to give the Thunder an insanely hard-fought 119-118 road victory.

Oklahoma City trailed by eight points with 49 seconds remaining in the second overtime session, before two three-pointers from Durant and one from Derek Fisher closed the game on a 9-0 run to steal the victory from the Raptors.

Durant finished with 51 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists. According to ESPN Stats & Info, the last player to put up those numbers was Michael Jordan in 1992.

The MVP debate isn’t yet over, but KD is doing everything possible to seal that door shut.

    Possibly the game of the year. Durant is one of the most unguardable players ever, Amir Johnson did as well as he could all night and it still didn’t matter. Tough loss for the Raptors up eight with under a minute left.

      Whoever said Lebron was the MVP needs to rethink that statement. Durant has been unstoppable this whole year.

        As opposed to LeBron, who has been regularly locked up? LOL

        Right now I give slight edge to Durant, and the fact that the voters are maybe a little tired of LeBron means KD will most likely win. But hating on anyone who picks LeBron is ridiculous.

    Seems like a gazillion years ago that this forum’s peanut gallery was all about how D Fish should just hang it up and stop sponging dough & roster space.

      It’s funny because hes actually doing better than Nash, whom the Lakers pretty much replaced him with.

        In all fairness the last couple years Fish wasn’t getting it done. Now that he’s got a more athletic team around him to make up for his lost athleticism, and he can just camp out at the 3-point line and shoot threes. His percentage has jumped back up into the .400 range where it needs to be for a one dimensional guy like him to be useful.

    Hats off. Impressive road win, looked like the Raptors had this one all but sealed.

    That’s guy Kevin is quite good. Wonder how RW is doing?

    Kevin Durant is pretty good at that basketball thing.

    Durant is one a heck of a player, and should be considered for the MVP at the end of the year. If the season ended today I don’t think to may would protest him getting the honors over Lebron.

      If KD “doesn’t” win MVP there should be protests!!

        Unanimity.
