Harden was second in the NBA scoring race to Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook, leading the Rockets through an injury-filled season to 56 wins, the Southwest Division championship, and the second seed in the Western Conference. Harden was flattered to be considered but is more driven to chase postseason success. "My name being in the conversation is a blessing and an honor," he said. "I'm not worrying about it. I am worried about doing the right things. It would be a great honor - something I dreamed of as a kid. I think every kid dreams that: to be the MVP of the NBA." Houston Chronicle

Conley sat out Golden State's 111-107 win over the Grizzlies on April 13 with a sprained right foot. The Warriors led by 32 points in the third quarter of that game before Kerr rested his starters prolonged minutes. "Whether it's a flashy up-tempo game or whether it's an 87-83 game, we feel like we have enough pieces and versatility to win all sorts of ways now," Warriors point guard and MVP candidate Stephen Curry said. "Our defense is going to show up. That's what we're going to bank on for the whole series." USA Today Sports

Equally devastating from long range and on drives to the hoop, Curry scored 39 points, and the Golden State Warriors took a 109-98 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night, completing a sweep of their first-round playoff series. "I knew he was crafty, I mean, a great shooter," Davis said of Curry, who averaged 33.8 points in the series. "There's nothing you can do. You try to pressure him and run him off the (3-point) line and he'll hit incredible shots in the lane. You back off so he won't drive, he's going to hit a 3. So you've got to pick your poison and he's a tough player to guard. That's why he's (a candidate) for MVP." USA Today Sports

Curry added that the key to the Warriors' first-round success was confidence. Golden State completed its sweep with a 109-98 victory over the Pelicans in Game 4. "Tonight was a little bit different because you had the pressure to close out the series," Curry told Yahoo Sports. "We had a huge 3-0 lead and you want to make it as easy on yourselves as possible. As long as defense travels every night we will be fine. I think that showed tonight." Yahoo! Sports
