Allow me to re-type that headline: Kevin Durant has been named Western Conference Player of the Month for games played in January.
This is KD’s third consecutive player of the month award this season, which is all three months, as he averaged 35.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 6.1 assists with an absurd PER of 37.1. The Thunder went 13-4, and had a 10-game winning streak.
KD played in 16 of the 17, scoring 20 in all of them, and 30 in 13 of them, which were all consecutive. He also set a career-high in the month with 54 against the Warriors.
Carmelo Anthony was named player of the month in the East.
