Reggie Miller summed it up …
Give Durant the MVP NOW!!!!!! Case closed……

OK, OK. Pump the brakes, Regg. But Durant is definitely in the lead.
Miller’s not alone in his opinion after another KD masterpiece:
Our own Anthony Slater wrote about the Thunder continuing its string of crazy fourth-quarter comebacks at home, in large part because of Durant.
Shandel Richardson of the Miami Sun-Sentinel said Durant is closing the gap on LeBron in the MVP race.
John Dorn of Bleacher Report says Durant’s recent string of play has made LeBron James and the Miami Heat the underdog headed into Wednesday’s matchup. Bold words indeed:
By carrying the 30-point streak into LeBron’s house, and by contributing nearly the same, broadened array of skills as the reigning MVP so far this season, the 25-year-old may unleash his first hints of overtaking James—on both individual and team levels.
SB Nation’s Coach Nick breaks down the MVP race to four candidates. Guess who’s in the lead?
Dan Devine of Yahoo! Sports said Durant might not be happy with the amount of shots he’s taking, but he’s doing more with them than anyone else in the league.
CBSSports.com’s Matt Moore said Durant is becoming everything we thought he would. It’s the Era of Kevin Durant.
This isn’t bad either:
UPDATED KEVIN DURANT SHOT CHART: Last 6 games — 39.8 points, 6.5 assists, 6.7 rebounds. This is stupid. pic.twitter.com/vYifkTwAwX— Conrad Kaczmarek (@ConradKazNBA) January 28, 2014
