    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Feb 13, 2013
    LeBron James is playing at a record-setting level, and that only makes Kevin Durant want to get better at his own game. I think I'm competing against the goals I set for myself at the beginning of the season, throughout the season and seeing if I can be better than that,'' Durant said. ``Of course, LeBron James is a really good friend of mine, a big inspiration, a guy I looked up to in high school, middle school, just hearing about him when he was in high school and being the No.1 pick out of high school was a pretty big accomplishment and now the stuff he's doing now, of course he's a big inspiration. Thursday night's game will be the first time the teams have played at Chesapeake Energy Arena since the Heat won Game 2 of the Finals, then returned home to win the next three games and the title.
