NEW YORK—OKC Thunder forward Kevin Durant made quite the impression Monday night at Harlem's famed Rucker Park basketball court.

Not only did he make his debut for the first time at streetball's most famous arena, but he also put on a show for the crowd posting 66 points on the evening.

After a bit of a slow start, KD turned up the heat and by the end of third quarter he had scored 38 points.

KD's 28 point fourth quarter was highlighted by five straight three-pointers. After that fifth straight long ball, the standing room only crowd rushed the court mobbing Durant for his stellar performance.

Durant finished the night on 9-of-11 shooting from the three point line to help lead DC Power to a 99-93 win over the Sean Bell All-Stars.
