With 49 seconds left in Tuesday's Game 5, the Oklahoma City Thunder trailed the Los Angeles Clippers by seven points. So, Kevin Durant hit a three, naturally:

Then, after Jamal Crawford missed on a finger roll, Durant got on the break and made a layup, Chris Paul turned the ball over and Reggie Jackson went in for a layup. The ball was knocked out of his hands and out of bounds.

Hold up, let's look at another replay of that. Is that really Thunder ball? Clippers head coach Doc Rivers certainly didn't think so.

After that, Russell Westbrook was fouled on a three-pointer. He hit all three free throws. That's how the Thunder took a one-point lead:

Los Angeles had one last chance with six seconds left, but Oklahoma City played pretty perfect defense and Paul turned it over again. Game over.
