Harden becomes the third Rocket ever to win the award, joining Moses Malone (1978-79 and 1981-82) and Hakeem Olajuwon (1993-94).

"Sixth Man of the Year to MVP", said Harden, who claimed the former honor in 2012 as a member of the Thunder.

In the 33 games he played without Cousins, Davis averaged 30.2 points, 11.9 rebounds, two steals and 3.2 blocks while shooting 51.4 percent from the field. Tonight, awards will be handed out to the league's best ballers, including MVP, Defensive Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year.

Gobert's teammates Donovan Mitchell and Ricky Rubio were also finalists for the Rookie of the Year and the Seasonlong NBA Cares Community Assist awards.

- Since the start of the 2016-17 season, Harden is averaging 10 assists per game.




To watch the 2018 NBA Awards - which will take place at the Barker Hangar in Los Angeles - live, tune in to TNT at 9 p.m. ET.

Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz won Defensive Player of the Year, edging out New Orleans' Davis and the Sixers Joel Embiid. Gobert, who turns 26 on Tuesday, missed 26 games during the regular season with multiple injuries, but still anchored a Jazz defense that posted the second-best defensive rating (101.6) in the National Basketball Association last season.

"I want to thank the Clippers organization for giving me an opportunity to be myself", Williams said. Casey also coached the Eastern Conference in this year's All-Star Game. Casey beat out Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens and Jazz coach Quin Snyder for the honor.

Those facts were not lost on two-time MVP victor Stephen Curry, as he took to Instagram to wonder if the man who drafted those players for the Thunder, Sam Presti, was getting an MVP award too.

The 6-foot-5 guard also posted the first 60-point triple-double performance in National Basketball Association history - 60 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds against the Orlando Magic.
