Durant, Thunder make statement
We knew the Oklahoma City Thunder were good. We knew Kevin Durant was the clear MVP favorite. But what happened on Wednesday night still raised eyebrows. After falling behind 22-4, KD & Co. quickly turned the game around, leading by five at halftime and proceeding to blow out the two-time defending-champion Miami Heat 112-95 -- on the road. Is there any chance Durant -- who extended his 30-point streak to 12 games Wednesday -- doesn't take home the top award? Can OKC win it all even without a healthy Russell Westbrook (they're now 15-6)? And what to make of the beleaguered Heat?
