You have got to be kidding me! Kevin Durant knocked down a bucket with a defender all over him to tie Game 7 and force overtime for Nets-Bucks. The shot looked like it might be a three, but Durant’s toe was on the line. Regardless, it was an amazing shot.

It has been a back-and-forth affair with numerous lead changes. Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday knocked down three free throws between them to give Milwaukee a four point lead. However, Durant hit a pull-up jumper with 42.3 seconds and then drained the game-tying shot with 1.6 seconds left.

The game is in overtime and Durant has 48 points.
