Durant is MVP of the season
The NBA play-offs gathered heat as the season entered its final phases. Emerging top in the Eastern Conference were the Miami Heat who won the series 4-2 against Indiana Pacers and reached their fourth successive NBA finals. In the Western Conference the Spurs led the finals 2-0, only for it to be levelled by Thunder in the fourth game. Spurs, however, captured the next two games and entered the NBA Championship finals - a rematch of last year’s finals. As a consolation Thunder’s Kevin Durant won the Most Valuable Player of the season award.
