Kevin Durant couldn't bare to watch the end of the Thunder game

Kevin Durant had a poor shooting night to the standard we expect from the league MVP but it doesn't mean the Thunder superstar's heart wasn't in it, in fact he was so nervous during the contest that he couldn't bare to watch Russell Westbrook's game winning free throws.

After Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers had wildly fouled Westbrook on his unearthly three point attempt, the Thunder point guard confidently stepped to the free throw line to knock down his shots but his teammate wasn't quite as collected as he was.

Ice water was running through the veins of Westbrook as he drained his attempts all the while Durant sat at the other end of the court with his back turned to the action.

The relief that burst across the face of Durant when he realised his teammate had delivered the crucial baskets was evident for the Thunders fans to see, he grabbed his running mate and raised him up to the adoring crowd.

Durant explained afterwards what he had just witnessed: "I have never seen a game like this with us, It just shows that we just keep going. You can never keep us down, and we are going to fight until the end.”

It was an incredible finish to an absolute playoff classic, with this series returning to Los Angeles and the Clippers facing elimination, we are set for one hell of a battle on the 16th of May.
