NBA stars couldn't contain their excitement while watching Kevin Durant put the finishing touches on his legendary playoff performance in the Brooklyn Nets' Game 5 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Durant carried a depleted Nets squad back from a double-digit deficit, tallying 49 points, 17 rebounds, and 10 assists Tuesday.

LeBron James and Allen Iverson were among the game's past and present greats to chime in on Durant's historic outing.

Durant shot 16-of-23 from the floor while also playing all 48 minutes.

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green and Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum couldn't help question the Bucks' decision not to have Giannis Antetokounmpo guard Durant down the stretch.

The Nets now lead the Eastern Conference semifinals 3-2 over the Bucks.
