VIDEO: Kevin Durant's Long Arms Are Long

Kevin Durant is still having issues getting open, but when he's getting the ball, he's making his chances count. Durant just went baseline and completed an unbelievable twisting layup to cut the Heat's lead to three. He went up, ducked his arms underneath to avoid the blocked shot, then lifted his arms up to the rim again to kiss a layup off the glass.

This is what's so amazing and frustrating about Durant. He's become such an incredible scorer that he sometimes won't work as hard as he needs to work to catch the ball close to the basket. Then again, why would you when you can do that?

The slow-motion version of the layup is breathtaking.
