In the past three weeks we’ve seen Steph Curry go for 51, Kevin Durant have his 43rd career 40 point game and Klay Thompson pour in 37 in one quarter. These kinds of performances are what we like to call “Stop and Watch games.” As in stop what you’re doing right now and get to a television immediately.
Al Horford, Paul Millsap and Jeff Teague were picked Thursday as reserves for the Eastern Conference All-Star team, giving the sizzling Atlanta Hawks three selections.
“No question about it,” a person close to the 2014 NBA MVP told Isola. “Kevin loves Carmelo (Anthony). It could work in New York. But never rule out the Thunder.”
When we look back at 2014, these are some of the games — not to mention stock-car races, tennis finals and golf rounds — we’ll remember the most.

It’s the biggest loss yet for a weakening American squad that will go to Spain without the leading scorer on its last two gold medal winners.
It’s too soon to say whether Melo will bolt for greener pastures. But the Knicks superstar will be testing free agency unless he has “a dramatic change of heart,” according to the Daily News.
Even with Serge Ibaka on the floor, the Thunder would be hard-pressed to beat a well-oiled machine like San Antonio.
“He’s a smart guy, smart mind,” Durant said. “He’s a great motivator, great speaker and can really relate to a lot of guys and demands that respect from everybody. He’s a great locker-room guy. I’m sure he’ll do a great job.”
Kevin Durant has plenty of scoring titles. Now, he finally has an MVP trophy to go with them.
Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City is No. 2 on the list, followed by the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant, Chicago’s Derrick Rose, Golden State’s Stephen Curry and New York’s Carmelo Anthony.
The Eastern Conference finally stopped Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin – then stopped their losing streak at the NBA All-Star game.

Kevin Durant’s 30-point streak ended at 12 games when he scored 26 in just 30 minutes, and the Oklahoma City Thunder won their 10th in a row with a 120-95 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night.
