Kevin Durant is regarded as one of the greatest scorers in NBA history. A 6 foot 10 forward who can score gracefully ad from anywhere is what separates Durant from the rest. He has 4 scoring titles to prove why he’s a certified scorer. And in his last game against the Boston Celtics, he passed another scoring milestone.
This was the second game back since KD returned from injury and in both games, he’s scored over 30 points so far. Those games have not amounted to win but have helped his legacy. With 6 minutes left in the 4th quarter, KD pulls up for a mid-range jumper to score his 25,000th point.
Kevin Durant becomes the 23rd NBA player to score 25k points
Kevin Durant is averaging 29.5 points per game this season. His career averages are 27 points per game. KD has had 6 seasons where he’s scored more than 2k points. The most points he’s scored in a single season are 2593 points in 81 games played. Also for someone who attempts shots from everywhere on the court, KD averages nearly 50% from the field in his career.

His shooting percentages for his career by distance are off the charts. It explains how he climbed the scoring charts with his scoring capabilities. KD is 3rd highest active scorer of all-time and 23rd amongst everyone.
He passed Ewing 8 months ago against the Milwaukee Bucks and is just 188 points away from passing Jerry West for 22nd. However, on the current trajectory that KD is on, he could pass ‘the logo’ before the playoffs begin.
The Brooklyn Nets are in one of the worst forms in the league. They have lost 17 out of their last 20 games. Also, they have dropped from number 1 to number 9 in the standings.
This achievement by Durant is one of the few highlights for the Nets in the last month. Will Durant’s scoring outbursts finally get the Nets on track to push for a playoff spot and an eventual title? Guess that’s all in the hands of the member of the 25k club Kevin Durant.
