Kevin Durant brought the house down with his tearful MVP acceptance speech on Tuesday, and then he collected the hardware before the Oklahoma City Thunder's Game 2 matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers Wednesday night.

As has become his custom, Durant was humble, grateful and focused. And then, of course, he pumped in 17 first-quarter points, proving he's not the type to rest on his laurels.
