The Oklahoma City Thunder controlled their destiny as they took on the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday, the final night of the regular season, but they needed a clutch performance out of their superstar to get the job done.

Thunder star Kevin Durant officially wrapped up his fourth NBA scoring title with 42 points against the Pistons. However, it took every one of his points for the Thunder to wrap up the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference.

With 16.5 seconds left, Durant threw down a big dunk over two Pistons defenders to give his team a 112-111 victory:

Oklahoma City finished the regular season at 59-23 and clinched the No. 2 seed thanks to its star's clutch drive. The Thunder will kick off the playoffs against the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday.
