The Miami Heat face the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night in a clash which sees LeBron James face Kevin Durant with both stars looking to make a statement in what is being billed as the MVP Showdown, Part I.

James has been complimentary of his rival, and friend, this week, insisting that no one can guard Durant without help given his current scoring streak.

The Thunder forward has scored at least 30 points in his last 11 games, as Oklahoma City have improved to 36-10, going 9-1 in their last 10 games and all without Russell Westbrook for the last 21 games.

In 16 meetings between their teams to date, Durant has outscored James nine times, although James’ teams are 13-3 and Miami’s biggest star will be perfectly content if that run is improved on Wednesday.

James insists that he isn’t obsessed with the MVP award, and that is perhaps wise considering Durant is averaging 38.5 points in his last 11 games and is arguably carrying this team on his back.

Meanwhile, Miami defeated the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday night and will be looking to put together a season-changing run if they can defeat the Thunder too.

Only five opposing players have scored more than 30 points in a game against Miami so far this season, and while Dwyane Wade believes it is “two guys at the top of their game”, it will be a real test for both teams to get the victory.
