Watch Kevin Durant drop 46 on Portland Trail Blazers (VIDEO)

Jan 22, 2014, 11:24 AM EDT

Kevin Durant is just trying to get his team wins, and with Russell Westbrook out that means he has to take on a heavy scoring load — he has scored at least 30 points in eight straight games.

That includes an impressive 46 on Portland Tuesday night, with 11 of those coming in the final 3:30 of the game when he went 4-of-4 with the game on the line. Durant has scored at least 46 points four times in 10 games, the only other player to do that since the NBA/ABA merger is Kobe Bryant (via Marc Stein of ESPN).

If you ask Durant about the MVP race he will blow you off, but this surge may have moved him ahead of LeBron James in that race. There’s half a season to go but right now it is those two battling for the MVP, with everyone else just trying to get their name on the other ballot slots.

    Batum must be demoralized after being dominated by Parsons and Durant in back to back games. Let’s stop calling him a great wing defender.

    Too bad he can’t use his finger as an excuse.

      Whenever you find yourself accomplishing things only Kobe Bryant has done, it is time to pause and reflect.
