Thunder’s Kevin Durant scores 48, hits game-winner against Timberwolves

Kevin Durant didn’t just score a season high in points on Saturday. He took over when his team needed him most.

WIth the Thunder trailing by 10 entering the fourth quarter, Durant took matters into his own hands, tallying 23 of his 48 points in the final 12 minutes. He scored four points in the last four seconds of the game, including what turned out to be the game winner:

Three seconds later, following a wild series of events involving Kendrick Perkins and Kevin Love, Durant hit two free throws to cap his scoring and give the Thunder a 115-111 win.

Durant fell just short of his career high of 52 points, which he reached on Jan. 18, 2013 in Dallas.
