by March 24, 2012

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook each scored 40 points in Friday’s double-OT win over Minny, making them the first teammates in history to accomplish the feat twice in a season. According to the Elias Sports Bureau: “Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant and guard Russell Westbrook have set a new standard of dynamic-duo performance in the NBA. In an epic double-overtime matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday, the two each surpassed the 40-point mark. This was the second time this season that both scored at least 40 points in the same NBA game. The Elias Sports Bureau noted that no pair of teammates had done that previously in NBA history.”
