Ok, so I jumped the gun on the MVP race a few days back on this platform: It’s not just Durant and Curry after all.

Kevin Durant is USA Basketball’s Male Athlete of the Year. He set an American Olympic record with 20.7 ppg, and quite simply carried the country’s offense on his back en route to gold in Tokyo. This is the third time he won the award. – 10:52 AM

“We can’t let him walk into 3s. We talked about that before the game.”
Kevin Durant dribbled up court and shot over Tobias Harris time and time again. It’s the most unguardable shot he has.

I’ve been watching the Brooklyn Nets since they moved to Brooklyn first-hand & I can definitely say Kevin Durant has won these fans over faster than any player. He has that “follow me & I’ll take you there” kind of vibe that just makes fans & teammates want to believe again. – 8:01 AM

With so much of his team missing, Kevin Durant probably needs to play great for the Brooklyn Nets to win.
He might be playing as well as ever.
Durant had 34 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists in the Nets’ 114-105 victory over the 76ers on Thursday.

Appreciate the greatness that comes in the form of Kevin Durant. – 10:02 PM

Steve Nash thought the Nets were getting good looks in the third quarter, just weren’t converting. Thought they started going in the fourth, led by Durant, to help them close it out. – 10:00 PM

“Kevin (Durant) is special.” – 9:58 PM

Last three games for KD, sans Harden:

9.3 assists
10.3 rebounds
Good grief – 9:58 PM

Matt Williams @StatsWilliams
Kevin Durant is the 2nd player in Nets NBA history with 150 points over a 4-game span, joining Vince Carter.
Carter had 154 points over a 4-game span in February 2005. – 9:54 PM

39 minutes for KD tonight. Only three players are averaging more per game, and one of them is…LeBron – 9:53 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Sixers made it close but it’s another bad loss to a very shorthanded team. They lose to Brooklyn 114-105 to drop to 15-15. Kevin Durant is incredible.
Tobias Harris: 3-17 from the field on some great looks. Not enough help for Joel Embiid and Seth Curry and that starts with him. – 9:52 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
Kevin Durant says,
“I’m so proud of everybody that stepped up — It’s a long season.” – 9:52 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Final: Nets beat the Sixers 114-105 for their fourth straight win. Kevin Durant continues to carry the team. He finished with 34 points to lead five Nets in double-figures. Claxton continues to be aggressive and Blake Griffin’s return has been a plus. – 9:51 PM

Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
Kevin Durant. Again. Goodnight. pic.twitter.com/XUcIQj8ote9:50 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
FINAL: Nets 114, Sixers 105 after Philly’s rally after falling behind comes up short (again). Durant with 34-11-8. Embiid with 32-9-6. Curry with 29 and 4 assists.
After that huge win over Golden State, it’s been a disappointing week for the Sixers — to say the least. – 9:50 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
FINAL: Nets 114, Sixers 105
Kevin Durant (34 PTS, 11 REBS, 8 ASTS), Blake Griffin (17 PTS, 9 REBS) & the Nets prove why they are the first seed in the East. Brooklyn dominated on the paint and on the glass while shooting an impressive 49% from the field and 48% from downtown. – 9:50 PM

Frank Isola @TheFrankIsola
Kevin Durant is off the charts. – 9:46 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Blake Griffin was 0-of-4 from downtown but just hit a wide-open 3 to give the Nets a 110-103 lead over the 76ers with 1:13 to go in the 4th quarter. Kevin Durant has taken this game over down the stretch, but Griffin just hit a huge shot. – 9:45 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
That’s a back breaker. KD with a 4-point play and then Blake Griffin hits a 3-ball. Nets on top 110-103 with 1:18 left. #Sixers9:45 PM

Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
does Durant ever stop – 9:45 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Twice in the final 3 minutes, the Sixers have tied the game. And, twice in the final 3 minutes, Kevin Durant has immediately answered with a bucket – including just converting a 4-point play after Tobias Harris fouled him on a 3. – 9:44 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Kevin Durant is just casually dribbling up the court and shooting over Tobias Harris. This time, he shoots over him and gets the foul. The MVP chants are blowing the roof off Barclays Center, and Durant has shown up Harris (3/17 FG) all night. – 9:44 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Kevin Durant with a four-point play after Embiid tied the game at 103. – 9:44 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
KEVIN DURANT IS THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD! THIS IS INSANE! HOWWW?!! – 9:43 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Wow. Kevin Durant is crazy. – 9:43 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
KD is v good. – 9:43 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Nets lead the Sixers 101-99 with 3:30 left. Kevin Durant approaching another 40-minute game, but has been the Nets’ closer tonight. – 9:41 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Kevin Durant just dribbled up court and shot over Tobias Harris like it was nothing. – 9:38 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
With eight minutes to go in this game, Philly has managed to cut Brooklyn’s lead down to 1. Kevin Durant is back in, and on pace to play roughly 40 minutes again. – 9:31 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Nets gotta get KD back in the game. Thybulle and Drummond have Mills in hell on the pick-and-roll. – 9:29 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
END OF Q3: Nets 85, 76ers 79
Sixers won the 3rd, 31-19, for their strongest quarter of the game. Embiid & Curry have combined for 49 points, but Tobias Harris is 3/15 & 0/4 from 3PT. Meanwhile KD on triple double watch, Kessler Edwards is balling out. Nets have to earn the win. – 9:21 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
End of the third quarter: Nets lead the Sixers 85-79. The Nets’ 20-point lead was nearly erased, but they’re holding on for now. Durant with 21, Clax with 15 and Mills with 14. Bench outscoring the Sixers’ reserves 24-5. – 9:20 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
End of 3rd QTR: Nets 85, Sixers 79
Kevin Durant (21 PTS, 11 REBS, 6 ASTS), Nic Claxton (15 PTS) & the Nets took their foots off the gas. They allowed the Sixers to explode for 31 PTS in the third and to make matters worse for them, Joel Embiid (28 PTS, 9 REBS) is in attack-mode. – 9:19 PM

Michael C. Wright @mikecwright
KD on something else rn man. – 9:09 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Halftime: Nets 66, Sixers 48. This is pretty simple: Philly is shooting 34 percent from the floor, including 5-of-18 on 3s. Brooklyn is shooting 54.3 percent from the floor and 7-of-11 on 3s. Embiid with 14-5-4. Durant with 15-9-5. – 8:39 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
HALF: Nets 66, Sixers 48
Kevin Durant (15 PTS, 9 REBS), Nic Claxton (11 PTS) & the Nets are outplaying Philly on the perimeter. Brooklyn is holding them to 28% accuracy from three while countering with 64% accuracy of their own. The Nets also making it hard on Joel Embiid. – 8:39 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Halftime: Nets blowing out the Sixers 66-48. Three players already in double-figures, led by Durant with 15 but another three could easily join in the second half. Sixers are on second half of back-to-back but have more bodies. The “bench” continues to step up. – 8:38 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
The Nets, who have 9 available players, are winning these non-KD minutes here in the 2nd quarter. That’s embarrassing for the 76ers and hella impressive for Brooklyn’s reserves. – 8:17 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Blown away by how good Kevin Durant is. Sixers doubling to get the ball out of his hands and he makes the right play so easily every time.
Equally not blown away by Joel Embiid creating three 3s in the first two minutes and the Sixers not getting anything from that again. – 8:09 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
End of the first quarter: Nets all over the Sixers 39-25. Cam Thomas had a rough game Tuesday. He’s feeling it tonight. Hits a 3 before the buzzer. Durant with 10, Claxton nine and Thomas eight. – 8:07 PM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Nets 39, Sixers 25 at the end of the first. Philly is struggling on both ends of the floor, shooting 33.3 percent from the floor and allowing the Nets to shoot 65.2 percent including 5-of-7 from 3. Durant has 10-6-2, but Claxton has 9 on 4-of-4 FG and Cam Thomas 8. – 8:07 PM

Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Nets 39, Sixers 25 after 1 here in Brooklyn. Kevin Durant leads all scorers with 10 points, while the Nets are 15-for-23 overall and 5-for-7 from 3. Philly is shooting 8-for-24 from the field. – 8:07 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
End of 1st QTR: Nets 39, Sixers 25
Kevin Durant (10 PTS, 6 REBS), Nic Claxton (9 PTS) & the Nets are having their way. Not only are they outscoring the Sixers 12-8 in the paint, but they’re finding quality looks offensively. As a result, they’re shooting it at 65% from the field. – 8:06 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Kevin Durant is getting some MVP chants here from the Barclays Center crowd – 8:03 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Kevin Durant out there with all four rookies again. Thomas just hit a 3. – 7:59 PM

Every time KD hits the ground hard, my heart skips a beat. – 7:54 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Kevin Durant finds Nic Claxton for an alley-oop over Joel Embiid after the timeout. Claxton is up to 9 points and hasn’t missed a shot yet. He even hit a hook shot. I don’t recall seeing him make one of those before. – 7:52 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Greetings from Barclays. Nets-Sixers tip shortly. BK beat Philly at their place in the second game of the season after a late rally. Nets up to nine guys with Langston Galloway rocking #9. Can Kevin Durant get any kind of break tonight? He’s playing a ton lately. Updates coming. – 7:24 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
“I don’t know that we can continue to lean on him the way we have. It doesn’t feel right.”
Kevin Durant ranks fourth in minutes per game, but with 7 players in the health and safety protocols, the Nets have little choice but to play him or punt games.

More on this storyline

Fomer Bulls coach Jim Boylen, I’m told, is indeed locked in to coach USAB’s World Cup qualifying team in its next two games in February after going 1-1 last month against Cuba and Mexico. Boylen might well end up coaching the qualifying team in all six two-game windows it must complete through February 2023 to secure a spot in the 32-nation field for the 2023 Worlds in the Philippines, Japan and Indonesia, but that will depend to an extent on Boylen’s NBA future and whether he returns to the league after this season. -via marcstein.substack.com / December 10, 2021

Adrian Wojnarowski: This is Grant Hill’s first major decision as the new managing director of USA Basketball. Hill’s been meeting with potential candidates for several months and comes away with a staff that includes significant accomplishment on international, NBA and college stages. -via Twitter @wojespn / December 10, 2021

Joe Vardon: Not only will Steve Kerr be the next Team USA coach, I’m told, but Cavs center Jarrett Allen is going to get strong consideration to be on the next team. The World Cup is in 2023 and the Olympics in 2024. -via Twitter @joevardon / December 10, 2021
