Like I said earlier....there's three other players not taking the ball out for the Thunder. Use two of them to set a double screen for Durant to the ball side-corner, then the third to set a down screen for Durant around the FT line elbow. Or, at the very least, use all three players not named Kevin Durant to set a series of screens for KD.
After seeing the replay, Battier actually did get into that passing lane. You could have very easily passed the ball right back to the inbounder (Thabo) although obviously that's not his game to hit that long 3 but he would have been open.
