Kevin Durant nails last second jumper for the win (GIF)

The Oklahoma City Thunder have seen quite a show from Kevin Durant in recent weeks. He continued that trend Monday night against the Atlanta Hawks. With the score tied 109-109, Durant nailed a last second jumper with three Hawks defenders around him and put the game away.

For the game Durant had 41 points on 15-25 shooting as the Thunder won 111-109. This final play is an appropriate illustration of why he has been so unstoppable as of late. The Hawks knew exactly what was coming (OKC was going to hold the ball and give it to Durant at the top of the key). Atlanta funneled their defense appropriately, and yet Durant still found a spot, stopped, leaned, and sealed the win for the home team.

Just enjoy the show, folks.
