Don’t expect LeBron James to concede the league MVP race to buddy Kevin Durant anytime soon.

A night after Durant scored a career-high 54 points in Oklahoma City’s home win over Golden State, James said he’s been inspired by the Thunder star’s recent performances and isn’t beyond using them as motivation to respond with his own breakout play.

“I love when I see K.D. do something like that,” James said. “It gives me an incentive. I don’t get that many shots around here, but I might be able to do a little something. I might be able to get a couple of dunks.”
