The race for the NBA MVP trophy is heating up between former teammates Russell Westbrook and James Harden. Most people are split between the two guards in a contest that’s the closest since well, Stephen Curry and James Harden. Will ‘The Beard’ lose out again? Kobe Bryant says we could end up with co-MVPs for the first time.
Westbrook and Harden went at it Sunday night with the Houston Rockets besting the Oklahoma City Thunder 137-125.
Westbrook finished with a triple-double of 39 points, 11 rebounds, and 13 assists. Harden finished with a double-double of 22 points and 12 assists along with 5 rebounds.
