In one of their most impressive victories of the season, the Oklahoma City Thunder took down the Miami Heat in blowout fashion, and ultimately pushed Kevin Durant to the stature of the NBA's MVP front-runner in the eyes of many this season.
The question is, though, is one game really enough for Durant to legitimately take over the MVP race?
An entire season of great play would argue it's not, but we'll certainly find out come Wednesday if James can get revenge on Durant and the Thunder at home.
For now, though, the Thunder should be happy holding down the fort as the No. 1 team in the West for practically the entire season.
Wining six of their last seven contests keeps them as one of the league's hottest teams, but victories against the Heat, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls are what propels them into the No. 2 spot on this list.
