Kevin Durant’s 30-Plus Streak Ends At 12 Straight Games

 

Kevin Durant’s 12-game streak of scoring at least 30 points was snapped on Friday during an easy win over the Nets. KD’s 26 points on 10-12 from the field put a cap on the best scoring month of his career, averaging 35.9 points on 54.9 percent from the field in January.

Durant played just 30 minutes and didn’t step on the court in the fourth, as the Thunder led by as many as 32 points. From ESPN Stats & Info:

Despite not reaching the 30-point threshold, Durant had arguably the most efficient scoring night of his career. It was the first time that he made at least 10 field goals and shot more than 80 percent from the field in a game.

Durant took advantage of Shaun Livingston, going 9-of-10 with 22 points and one turnover when defended by him. He was at his best shooting from distance, making all five of his attempts from 15 feet and outside against the Nets.

Durant scored fewer than 30 points in just three games in January and completed his dominant month with 575 points—the last player to score that many points in any month was Kobe Bryant, who had 578 in March 2006.

    Yeah it ended because of a blow out lol. It just seems like hes hitting impossible shots easier and easier every game.

    Jason Kidd’s strategy to stop Kevin Durant’s streak worked perfectly

    …Durant’s recent scoring binge is crazy, but I think it still was topped by MJ’s 10 triple-doubles in an11 game span back during the 88-89 season and back in January and February of 2003 when he averaged 43.4 & 40.6 points per game in these two months which included a February which saw him unleash a steak of nine straight 40 point games or in March of 2007, his steak of four straight 50 point games which included two 60 point games.

    I appreciate KD’s run, I really do…but when you have seen someone that’s scored 40+ in 9 games, and 60+ twice in about 4-5 games…then yeah. He is hands down the best scorer in the league though, and I have no doubt he will reach Kobe in 2006-2007 heights soon enough. He’s only 25 afterall.

    …oh snap just noticed I didn’t refer to Kobe Bryant by name in my comment. For those who might be a lil confused. …Durant’s recent scoring binge is crazy, but I think it still was topped by MJ’s 10 triple-doubles in an11 game span back during the 88-89 season and back in January and February of 2003 when “Kobe” averaged 43.4 & 40.6 points per game in these two months which included a February which saw him unleash a steak of nine straight 40 point games or in March of 2007, his steak of four straight 50 point games which included two 60 point games.
