KD went on to show exactly why he was voted MVP in win over Clippers.
Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant received his MVP trophy ahead of Game 2 against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night.
The 25-year-old delivered an emotional speech on Tuesday in which he thanked his team-mates and mother for helping him live his dream, and he followed that up by delivering a stellar performance which showed exactly why he was voted the MVP.
Durant had 32 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists as he led the Thunder to a significant win to level the series with the Clippers at 1-1, and having dropped the first game at home it was imperative that the trophy presentation didn’t serve as a distraction.
Russell Westbrook contributed 31 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in the win, and while he received praise from opposite number Chris Paul, it was still Durant’s night as NBA commissioner Adam Silver handed him the trophy in front of a raucous home crowd.
