VIDEO: Kevin Durant Commits Assault On The Rim

The Oklahoma City Thunder are playing the first quarter of what might be their last game of the season as if they are playing the first quarter of the 45th game of their season. That is, except for Kevin Durant, who has nine points and one huge tomahawk dunk.

Durant took the kickout pass on the right baseline, got by his initial defender and jumped high in the air for a right-handed throwdown. Udonis Haslem was kinda sorta in the picture, but got out of the way just in time to avoid being embarrassed. Nevertheless, ESPN's Jeff Van Gundy still compared him to Shawn Bradley when narrating the action going into commercial. So much for avoiding embarrassment.
