Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant reached another historic NBA milestone over Oscar Robertson after his impressive game against the Minnesota Timberwolves last night. Durant recorded a total of 30 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists as the Nets won the game 110-105.
With his strong 30-point showing, Durant has now scored at least 25 points in a single game 585 times. Prior to his Minnesota performance, Durant was tied with Robertson for the seventh-most number of games of 25 or more points. That tie at 584 games has now been broken, and Durant has reached a new milestone in his career.

The Nets star has a long way to go, though, until he surpasses the next person on the list—Wilt Chamberlain. Chamberlain has a total of 632 games with 25 points or more. That total is 47 more than Durant's current tally of 585. LeBron James sits at the top of the list with 819 games scoring at least 25 points.
Kevin Durant is currently averaging 28.6 points per game this season. Including the Timberwolves matchup, he has scored at least 25 points in four of his last five games. His immaculate displays have played a part in taking the Nets to 1st in the Eastern Conference. After surpassing Oscar Robertson, KD will be hoping to put in another high-scoring shift when the Nets take on the Chicago Bulls who are just below them in the Eastern Conference standings.
