HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — There’s nothing like head-to-head matchups between MVP candidates to help us make our weekly evaluations of who belongs where on the KIA Race to the MVP Ladder.
But to get a chance to see the two players have held the top two spots all season long go chest-to-chest the way Kevin Durant and LeBron James did last weekend was a spectacular opportunity.
The only problem is, it wasn’t nearly as entertaining or as exciting as the show Kevin Love, Russell Westbrook and Durant put on two nights earlier in a double-overtime thriller won by the Thunder (if you missed the game do yourself a favor and at least watch the recap).
Love and Westbrook have both moved into the top five of the KIA Race to the MVP Ladder with their recent play and join what’s become a crowded field down the final stretch of the condensed season.
And remember, this is a fluid list. You can play your way on or you can play your way off, but nothing is guaranteed.
