Jazz 140, Thunder 139 (OT)

Regular season (April 6)

The highest-scoring game of the 2009-2010 season ended in dramatic and controversial fashion. First, Deron Williams' jumper with 1.1 seconds left in overtime gave host Utah a one-point lead; then, the Jazz's C.J. Miles blocked Kevin Durant's three-pointer on a play on which the Thunder pleaded for a foul call, to no avail. (The next day, the NBA said Miles should've been called for a foul, which would've sent Durant, a 90 percent free-throw shooter, to the line for three shots.) Williams finished with 42 points, 10 assists and one turnover, teammate Carlos Boozer collected 28 points and 15 rebounds and Durant had 45 points in a game Boozer described as an "instant classic."
