The Oklahoma City Thunder had one lead in the fourth quarter.

Lucky for them, it was the last one -- clinching them the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference playoffs.

Kevin Durant's driving dunk with 16.5 seconds remaining sent the Thunder to a regular season-ending 112-111 win over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night.

Durant, one possession after he couldn't get an easy putback to fall, drove past Kyle Singler on the left side for the two-handed slam and Oklahoma City's first lead since there were eight minutes left in the third quarter.

At the other end, Thabo Sefolosha stripped Jonas Jerebko, leading to a wild scramble and ultimately a jump ball that Detroit won. Greg Monroe tipped it back to Brandon Jennings, who hit the rim with an off-balance 3-point try at the buzzer.
