An incredible stat that was flashed on NBA Fastbreak last night: Over the past 20 seasons, Kobe Bryant holds the record for most 25-point games in a season with 68 (2005-06). Michael Jordan is second on that list with 67 (1990-91).
On Tuesday against the 76ers, Kevin Durant had his 65th game of 25 points or more. And guess what? KD still has nine games yet to play. It’s a very, very real possibility that Durant will score 25 or more points over 70 times this year. And he’s only in his third year. And he’s just 21 years old.
Think on that one for a bit.
