Sometimes the best part of a dunk is the pass that led to it. Such was the case with this alley-oop from Russell Westbrook to Kevin Durant on Wednesday night.

Clearly standing well beyond the three-point arc was no deterrent for Westbrook. He saw Durant making the cut and didn't think twice.

Despite the highlight, the Oklahoma City Thunder tandem struggled on Wednesday. Durant and Westbrook finished with a combined 30 points on just 13-of-40 shooting. The Thunder ultimately lost Game 2 by a final score of 112-77.
