Kevin Durant was locked in for the Thunder yet again on Tuesday night.
Durant poured in a season high 44 points to go with 14 rebounds and 5 assists on 12-26 shooting and 16-18 from the line to help the Thunder knock off the pesky Knicks 128-122 in overtime.
Durant’s 44 of course put him over 20 points yet again, extending his 20-plus point performance streak to 32 straight games. The last time a team held on Durant was back on November 10th when KD had 14 points prior to a hamstring injury.
This was Durant’s 228th career 30-plus point game, and his 45th career 40-point game. Since Durant entered the league, those 45 40-point games are the most in the NBA.
You can take a look at Durant’s performance right here:
Durant is averaging 27.1 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 7.9 assists per game in 40 games for the Thunder this season, shooting 50% from the field and 38% on threes.
It’s safe to say Durant has returned in a big way after foot injuries riddled his 2014-2015 season.
