MIAMI (AFP) - LeBron James won the last two MVP awards but his grip on the trophy could be slipping after Kevin Durant's Oklahoma City Thunder dominated the Miami Heat 112-95 on Wednesday.

Durant, who has finished second to James in MVP voting three times in his career, scored 33 points to stretch his 30-or-more points streak to a dozen contests.

Durant said he looks forward to these contests against the two-time defending champion Heat and he's not taking anything for granted.

"It could be my last game every time I step on the floor so I got to give it my all," the 25-year old Durant said.
