Kevin Durant scored 51 points on Friday night against the Toronto Raptors, but he wouldn't have hit the tremendous milestone without a clutch three-pointer in double-overtime. 

With the Oklahoma City Thunder trailing by two with 8.8 seconds to go in the second extra session, Derek Fisher inbounded the ball to Jeremy Lamb, who found Durant and let him go to work. 

From there, Durant would take a few dribbles to his left before rising, firing and hitting a game-winning three-pointer over Amir Johnson with 1.7 seconds remaining. 

 

In the 119-118 win, Durant became the first player with multiple 50-point games in a single season since LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in 2008-09, according to ESPN Stats & Info

Durant finished 15-of-32 from the floor and 7-of-12 from long distance with 12 rebounds and seven assists. Another MVP performance from the Thunder star.
