It's a playoff matchup that is guaranteed to go down in the NBA's history books.

Harden leads the league in points produced and assists. Westbrook is averaging a triple-double, something that hasn't been done in more than 50 years.

With a Most Valuable Player Award on the line, who takes the prize?

We'll find out soon.
