Game 2 between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Clippers airs on live TV and via live stream video tonight, according to a May 7 Los Angeles Times report. NBA MVP Kevin Durant was presented his award in front of the home crowd tonight. KD told the OKC crowd he wouldn't want to share the award with anybody but those who were at the game tonight. The crowd erupted in cheers in support of the Thunder, which trails in the series 1-0.
Yesterday at Kevin Durant's full speech accepting the MVP award was unbelievably touching. He was as humble as any super star has ever been. He said that his mom, who raised him as a single mother, was the true MVP, and he cried throughout the speech, and viewers cried along with him. He took the time to speak to each of his teammates, and there is no doubt that during tonight's game, the Thunder team will know they are certainly one, and they should play an amazing together tonight. No doubt tonight's game is must with for OKC if they want to advance further into the 2014 NBA Playoffs.
Chris Paul dominated in Game 1 two days ago. It seems unlikely he will repeat his performance from Monday, but the Thunder better have a better game plan for defending the Clippers superstar. Of course, if they find a way to shut Paul down, they will still have to worry about Blake Griffin heating up.
