Whether you want to say it was the shot that tipped the scales in the Thunder's favor, or that it was simply an incredible bucket, Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook delivered the basket of the night in Monday's series-closing victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.

After tipping and stealing an errant Ramon Sessions pass, Westbrook streaked down the court with Sessions draped on his arm and heaved an off-balance underhand floater in the lane that had no business going through the cylinder - but it did, and it was awesome.

It was the and-one heard 'round the world, as Westbrook's shot galvanized his teammates and put the Thunder up 73-70 in the waning moments of the third quarter. Read more about the OKC's victory and the cloudy future in Los Angeles here.
