Yes, this Kevin Durant clutch three-pointer (and eventual four-point play that helped force overtime) was amazing to watch:

But, no, It doesn’t bring back memories of Larry Johnson’s four-point play during the 1999 playoffs to help the New York Knicks beat the Indiana Pacers.

Because the Thunder lost.

And, no, it wasn’t the greatest shot of Durant’s career.

Because the Thunder lost.

Durant’s response, when asked last night whether that show was, in fact, the best of his career:

“We lost, so it really doesn’t matter.”

And that’s why Durant is, truly, a special player.

Because he understands what is, truly, a special moment.
