Serge Ibaka's Big Block Quickly Leads to Kevin Durant's Big Dunk

Christopher WalderContributor IIDecember 4, 2013

Good defense leads to even better offense for the Oklahoma City Thunder against the Portland Trail Blazers.

After a Serge Ibaka block on a cutting Damian Lillard late in the second quarter, point guard Russell Westbrook received the ball and threw a beautiful outlet pass to Kevin Durant, who dunked with authority as Nicolas Batum fouled him for the and-1. 

The flexing by Durant was just the icing on the cake.

Update: Led by LaMarcus Aldridge's monster night of 38 points, 13 rebounds and five assists, however, it was the Blazers that came out on top, 111-104, Wednesday night in Portland.
