Thunder's Durant is guarded by Bulls' Deng during their NBA basketball game in Chicago

Video: Kevin Durant does a great Dirk Nowitzki impression to seal Thunder’s win over Bulls


The Bulls had an answer for what the Thunder wanted to do offensively for most of the night, but ultimately, there was no answer for this.

Kevin Durant drained this one-legged fadeaway — Dirk Nowitzki style, from 17 feet out with 19.5 seconds left — to seal the 97-91 win for OKC.

Chicago came into this one ranked second in the league in defensive efficiency, allowing just 92 points per 100 possessions. And even against the Thunder, the Bulls did a pretty good job limiting the easy chances.

But this shot is not one you can guard, and it’s an example of what makes the Thunder so tough to deal with in late-game situations.

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
