It's a wrap. After a year that provided a handful of breakout players, record-setting win (and loss) streaks, nagging injuries, and much more, the 2013-14 NBA season has come to a close. For the Oklahoma City Thunder, they were able to lock down the second seed in the Western Conference with a 112-11 win over Detroit. And while we'll still have to wait until late May to find out who wins this year's MVP honors (although let's be honest, there's only two legit contenders), Kevin Durant made a strong case for himself last night with 42 points and 6 assists. Even more, half of his points came in the fourth period, which proved to be crucial as the Thunder prevailed in a must-win situation.

From Mestella, Spain, Real Madrid captured the Copa del Rey after a downright mesmerizing goal from Gareth Bale. At 85', the game was tied 1-1, but Bale exploded down the pitch and scored on Jose Manuel Pinto to give Madrid the advantage. Whether he's the most expensive footballer in the world or not, it's safe to say Bale proved his worth in yesterday's huge win. Be sure to hit the jump for a clip of the amazing goal if you missed it.
