Houston regrouped after a lull that followed the 22-game win streak and still has a shot at second in the West.

10. Nuggets ()

MVP Race

1. Kobe Bryant (Los Angeles Lakers) The top seed in the West and 28.4 ppg, 6.3 rpg and 5.4 apg should be enough to earn Bryant his first MVP.

2. Chris Paul (New Orleans) It’s hard to deny CP3 and his 21.1 points, 11.6 assists and 2.7 steals and his team’s 55 wins.

3. Kevin Garnett (Boston) KG (19.0 ppg, 9.3 rpg, 3.5 apg) was indeed the Big Ticket for Bostonthis regular season.

ROY Race

1. Kevin Durant (Seattle) The highest-scoring rookie, Durant (20.0 ppg, 4.2 rpg) probably will win in a landslide.

2. Al Horford (Atlanta) — Horford is the only serious — yet distant — contender with 10.2 points and 9.6 rebounds.

3. Luis Scola (Houston) — Scola had a strong second half to the season, but his 10.0 points and 6.3 rebounds aren’t enough.
