Durant had a humble answer when asked about the play after the game.
"I really thought he slipped on some sweat there, so I can't take full credit for it. But I was glad that we were able to get some momentum [and] I was able to get some space to do my thing and I'm glad I finished the shot too."
The Nets cruised to a 128-86 win. Durant finished with 28 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds.
