With the Oklahoma City Thunder desperate for points in the final minute of regulation of Game 2 against the Memphis Grizzlies, Kevin Durant showed why he is the favorite to win the 2014 Most Valuable Player award.

Memphis held a 98-93 lead late in the fourth quarter, but a wild four-point play by Durant gave the Thunder some life. Point guard Russell Westbrook nearly lost the ball out of bounds, but he managed to save the ball and get it to Durant.

From there, the NBA's leading scorer made something out of nothing:

Durant not only hit the tough three-pointer, but he also drew a foul on the play. He went on to sink the ensuing free throw to make it a 98-97 game with 13.3 seconds remaining.
