Steph Curry over the backboard alley-oop to Kevin Durant (Video)

I picked Oklahoma City Thunder Kevin Durant as my pre-game favorite to win the MVP award for the NBA All-Star Game. Steph Curry might deserve it with this over the backboard alley-oop pass to Durant.

From out of bounds Curry tosses it over the backboard as Durant flies in from off screen to slam it home. An impressive play, something you’d expect to see in the slam dunk contest.

The Western Conference has some work to do to get back in the game.
