Video: Kevin Durant Dunk On Ronny Turiaf

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xe9P_QtuU7U

A Kevin Durant dunk is a thing of beauty.  The Oklahoma City Thunder star rose up and threw down a dunk on new Miami Heat member Ronny Turiaf.  Poor Turiaf had no chance to stop Durant.   Then again, not many people do, except it is normally on the perimeter.

This is a big game for both teams as they battle for homecourt advantage throughout the entire playoffs.  Expect this game to go down to the wire with great plays on both sides.  However, I have been wrong on that account when it comes to Miami.  They have a nasty little habit of sleepwalking through games and not competing at a high level.

Maybe the national television spotlight will get them out of it.  Then again, the Boston Celtics dismantled them on Sunday.  Dismantle is putting it lightly too.  Boston put on a clinic while Miami looked like they wanted to be anywhere else in the world.  If that happens during this game, Oklahoma City will roll to another big victory in a season full of big games.

If they do, Durant is the guy who is going to lead them.  His play has been out of this world and he’s a legit MVP candidate.  If LeBron James keeps struggling, this award will go to Durant.  There is no way that you can not give it to him.  His scoring is always great, but his leadership and defense have increased in recent weeks.

Plus, he can elevate for dunks like this.  Ask Turiaf if he thinks Durant is a MVP candidate.

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.

Rondo Perfectly Guesses Atlanta's Final Play

Say what you will about Rajon Rondo, but there's no way to deny that he's an incredibly smart basketball player. Last evening against the Atlanta Hawks, the Sacramento Kings were up by three points with 1.9 seconds left, and Atlanta had one final possession to tie things up. Rondo immediately recognized the play the Hawks had drawn up and directed DeMarcus Cousins to an empty space on the floor where the Hawks were planning to send a player to take a three. Rondo's smarts made the Hawks botch the play, and the Kings held serve for the win.
