There is little doubt that Durant is the favorite after witnessing what he has accomplished this season. With 38 points against the Suns on Sunday night, he passed Michael Jordan‘s on the list of players scoring 25 or more points in 40 consecutive games, running his streak to 41 (that trails only Wilt Chamberlain‘s 80 and Oscar Robertson‘s 46). Over the last 10 games, he’s averaging 34.5 PPG. Meanwhile, James has battled injuries and scored less than 20 points in four of the last 10 games. Griffin has battled ankle and back injuries as well and still managed to post a triple-double on Thursday against the Mavericks with 25 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists.
