Pro basketball’s scoring leader Kevin Durant is having a magical season, and if he keeps it up then we will be stamping his MVP ticket quite soon; tomorrow at 7 PM EST Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder go up against the Orlando Magic. If you were looking for the TV info, then you need not search any further.

The Thunder won their latest and their head coach seemed quite pleased overall with the effort and attention to detail.
“We just focus on doing our job every night and living with the results and they’ve been pretty good for a while now,” coach Scott Brooks said after the win. “We have expectations to a standard that we want to play at and I think we’ve done a good job with that going into the All-Star break. This is funky time for a lot of teams because a lot of players are probably thinking about the break and what they’re doing, getting their plans together. We’ve never been a team that has done that and I don’t anticipate that happening this year.”
My pick is definitely for the Thunder to cover the spread (-9) in this one, and to win as well. Victor Oladipo may have to guard Durant for stretches, but the Slim Reaper is playing at such a a high level that no defense can stop him. He is definitely my MVP pick if the season ended today, and do not think LeBron James will be able to catch his summer workout buddy. It’ll be one of the first times in a while that Durant does not finish second, which is something we all know he is absolutely sick of at this point.
