• Why Kevin Durant's streak of topping 25 points per game matters

    Summary of 4 articles · Updated Apr 5, 2014
    While Durant was able to match M.J. For much of Friday night's game against the Houston Rockets, it looked like Kevin Durant's streak of games with at least 25 points would come to a close at 39 straight, one shy of Michael Jordan for the best such stretch in the past 50 years. Any streak of this nature will feature its share of less-than-inspiring games, but Durant's struggles on Friday speak to just how amazing it is that he has been able to keep it going for nearly half of a full season. The all-time record, a whopping 80 straight games for Philadelphia Warriors demigod Wilt Chamberlain in the 1961-62 season, is so far away that it doesn't yet make sense to consider Durant within striking distance. Chicago’s possessions-per-game count was the league’s slowest that year, 23rd of 23 teams, but it nearly mirrors to the digit Oklahoma City’s 2013-14 possessions-per-game count, which is ranked ninth of 30 teams.
