PHOTO: Kevin Durant couldn’t watch Westbrook’s clutch free throws
In what will be an iconic photo for years to come (snapped by Ronald Martinez of Getty Images), Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant couldn’t watch teammate Russell Westbrook shoot clutch go-ahead free throws with six seconds remaining.
It happened Tuesday night when the Thunder rallied from seven points down with under a minute to go to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 105-104. Westbrook was fouled by Chris Paul while shooting a three-pointer, and went to the line with OKC trailing 104-102. Westbrook calmly sank the free throws as Durant sat at the other end of the court, looking the other way.
