Video: Magic's Tobias Harris throws down buzzer-beating dunk to top Thunder

Magic forward Tobias Harris threw down a buzzer-beating dunk to top the Thunder 103-102 in Orlando on Friday night.

Oklahoma City snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in less than five seconds flat.

With the Thunder leading 102-101, Kevin Durant went in search of a knockout blow on his team's final possession. The shot clock and the game clock were separated by about five seconds, leading Durant to loft a mid-range jumper with seven seconds remaining in regulation. Durant's shot drew back iron and the ball caromed out near the three-point line.

Victor Oladipo gave chase, managing to secure possession by beating two Thunder players to the ball and immediately taking off for the races. Orlando found itself in a three-on-one fast break opportunity as a bewildered Durant stood and watched the action unfold. Oladipo dished a bounce pass to Moe Harkless, who in turn passed on a lay-up opportunity to feed the trailing Harris.

Harris received the ball with one second remaining in the game, but he still found a way to jump quickly and throw down a two-handed dunk just moments before the horn sounded. Replays showed that Harris did beat the buzzer -- barely -- and Orlando claimed its improbable victory, much to the Amway Center's delight.

Harris finished with a team-high 18 points (on 6-for-17 shooting), five rebounds and two assists. Arron Afflalo chipped in 16 points (on 3-for-11 shooting), five assists and two rebounds for the Magic.

Durant led all scorers with 29 points (on 10-for-22 shooting) and added 12 assists and five rebounds. Serge Ibaka added 26 points (on 10-for-13 shooting) and six rebounds in a losing effort.

Orlando improved to 15-37 with the win. Oklahoma City dropped to 40-12 with the loss.
