Kevin Durant is on his way to possibly winning his first ever MVP award, if he can squeak by LeBron James. Durant showed some of it Wednesday night against the Denver Nuggets.
He especially showed it when he posterized Nuggets center JaVale McGee. McGee looked, well, just out of it after he got dunked on.
As for KD, he would end up with 32 points. And with Kobe Bryant sitting out Thursday night's game versus the Kings, Durant also has won his third straight scoring title. He's the first to win three straight since Michael Jordan.
The Denver Nuggets are cruising into the playoffs, and capping the regular season against the woeful Minnesota Timberwolves may just keep it that way.
Coach George Karl is also planning to take advantage of the seemingly lopsided matchup.

Kevin Durant's battle with Kobe Bryant for the scoring title has come down to the last couple of games. The rail thin Durant dropped 32 on the visiting Denver Nuggets and this little gem on JaVale McGee just for good measure.
When you've got the wing span of Durant, dunking over big men just comes naturally whether you weight 175 pounds or not.
Javale McGee is having a very interesting season, he is either dunking on someone or being dunked on. You don’t hear much else from the big fella unless it is some sort of blooper highlight reel. Tonight when the Oklahoma City Thunder took on The Denver Nuggets Javale was once again being talked about for getting posterized by none other than Kevin Durant. Video evidence...
Denver can never turn a party down, and make no mistake about it, Denver locking up the 6th seed – in a 131-102 victory over Minnesota — destined Denver to face Hollywood in the first round. 7 Denver Nuggets scored in the double-figures as the team scored a season high of 131 points over the Timberwolves .

The Denver Nuggets desperately wanted to make the playoffs to get their new young roster some experience under pressure.
In coach George Karl's mind, they got a jumpstart on that.
Karl had his team treat the last seven regular season games as a playoff series, suggesting Denver had to win at least four to reach the postseason for a ninth straight season.
They won six, moving...
It's official. The Lakers will host the Denver Nuggets in the first round of the playoffs.
The Lakers beat the Nuggets, 3-1 in the season series, though Metta World Peace likely will be absent for the entire series. He'd only appear if the series went to a Game 7. We'll have much more analysis soon. But for now, below is the schedule:
Game 1 - @ Staples Center, Sunday...

I was in search for something INSPIRING, but gave some of the best plays from the 2011-2012 season at the same time. Something that demonstrated a team that possessed heart, intensity and courage through injuries abound and trades. A video that showed what Denver Basketball is. When ESPN and the head analysts want to toss Denver [...]
The OKC Thunder was as obnoxious as ever, curdling the OKC air with their chants for an entire minute before Russell Westbrook spoke before the crowd. Fast forward 2.5 hours and the fans would be leaving the Energy Solutions Arena with hung heads and hushed chants of enthusiasm. The Denver Nuggets would pick axe their way to a [...]
The Oklahoma City Thunder locked up the number 2 seed in the Western Conference but don’t tell Kevin Durant that. Most teams are resting their star players down the stretch but not Durant he is just one of those players that is going out on every night to give it his all. He probably also played in Wednesday’s game against the Nuggets because he is chasing the...
If you were looking for the dunk of the night in the NBA, Thunder star Kevin Durant provided it in the third quarter of the Nuggets/Thunder affair.
