Durant's Dunkface Against Mavs Ranked NBA's Top Play

Posted: Updated:

Kevin Durant's massive dunk that sparked the Oklahoma City Thunder to a win over the Dallas Mavericks in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals is the NBA's Play of the Year.

The league released the top ten plays on its website, NBA.com, on Wednesday.

Durant's dunkface came against Dallas 7-footer Brendan Haywood with the Thunder trailing by nine in the opening quarter.

The play sparked a 21-7 run that helped the Thunder erase an early 11-point lead on their way to a 106-100 victory at American Airlines Center in Dallas.

Also in the top ten was Durant's teammate, Russell Westbrook for a slashing layup against the Denver Nuggets.

Earlier in the day, the NBA also awarded Oklahoma City's triple-overtime victory over the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 4 of the semifinals as the NBA's Top Game of the Year.
