Kevin Durant took the last shot of today’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers. It was a tournament-deciding shot for his Phoenix Suns.

With 6 seconds on the clock, Devin Booker grabbed Anthony Davis’ missed free throw and passed it to Durant. He dribbled up the floor and launched a 3-pointer with 2.8 seconds left to tie the game, which at that point was 103-106. But unlike his heroics during his Golden State Warriors days, this shot did not even go anywhere near the rim.
