Kevin Durant Available to Play Tonight After Missing Close to 2 Months

Brooklyn Nets star, Kevin Durant, will be available to play tonight against the New Orleans Pelicans after healing from a hamstring strain.  Durant has not played since the Nets played the Golden State Warriors on February 13th.  The forward is averaging 29 points a game and returns to the team for the last 21 games of the regular season.  Despite being injured, Durant was in the news last week when a series of private messages between himself and actor, Michael Rapaport, were made public by Rapaport.  Durant was fined by the NBA for using derogatory language in the leaked messages.

The Nets did not miss a beat without Durant, going 19-4 which was the best record in the NBA during that time span.  That being said, the Nets will be thrilled to get Durant back into their lineup and it will help take the pressure off James Harden and Kyrie Irving.  Harden has played at an MVP level this year for Brooklyn and has barely missed any time this season compared to Irving and Durant.  Unfortunately for Harden, he will now be sidelined for the next 10 days with a hamstring injury.  The Nets are tied for the best record in the eastern conference (35-16) but are second in the standings to the 76ers by tiebreaker (conference record).

Nikola Jokic Wins KIA NBA MVP Award in Landslide

The KIA NBA MVP award was a landslide victory for Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic who received 91 out 100 first place votes. The 26-year-old made history being the lowest draft pick to win the MVP since he was drafted 41st overall in 2014. Jokic nearly averaged a triple-double during the regular season, averaging 26.4 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 8.3 assists a game while shooting over 56% from the field. The Nuggets lost All-Star point guard Jamal Murray in April to injury but finished the season 13-5 because of Jokic’s high level of play.
