Small forward Kevin Durant has been lighting it up lately and his latest against the DMV was no different. How does 33 points and 13 rebounds sound to you? That is clutch basketball that ended up winning the game in overtime, and could even be counted as MVP numbers.
“I give Oklahoma City credit for coming back” said Randy Wittman. “They made shots. All we needed to do at the end of regulation was make one shot or a couple of free throws and the game would have been over. We played our tails off but came up short.”

Durant might be on the fast-track to an MVP season if he keeps these numbers up, but there are a few contenders out there who are more than worthy as well. Point guard Chris Paul and postionless LeBron James both come to mind, but we will have to see where each team finishes record-wise, and then we can reason it out from there. The fundamentals are absolutely key though, and Durant has been impressive in that respect as of late. His free throw shooting has been elite, and if he can keep that up all year then the rest of the league is in for trouble.
