Kevin Durant named Western Conference Player of the Month for January.
KD not only got a new puppy, (who he should name MVP), he also earned another award to add to his mantle, his third Player of the Month award in a row after averaging 35.9 ppg on 54.9% shooting from the field, 6.1 rpg, 6.1 apg, 1.6 spg, and almost a block per game in 38.3 mpg in the month of January.

Ahmad Brooks (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday.
According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, Brooks is going through the league’s post-concussion protocol this week, which could create more opportunities for Tank Carradine to showcase his skills as an outside pass rusher. The main subs for Brooks on Sunday is rookie Eli Harold, who is ready for the increased workload, however Cory Lemonier and Tank Carradine will be ready to go if needed. Analysis: Dom Murtha
