1. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder
Last week: 2
Finally, Durant moves up to the first spot for the first time this season. Both LeBron James and Paul George have been exchanging the No. 1 spot for several weeks now, with Durant being just a step behind the two.
Well, this week it all changed. The Thunder went 4-0 and Durant was fantastic in just about every game, especially the one against the Pacers. Durant and the Thunder cooled one of the hottest teams in the league off with a 118-94 victory and the forward contributed with 36 points, 10 rebounds and five assists.
