Warriors superstar Kevin Durant cracks Top 10 of all-time playoff scoring list
Durant made it to the Top 10 of the NBA playoff scoring list in Game 3 of their Western Conference Semifinals series with the Houston Rockets. He passed the recently retired Dwyane Wade who tallied a total of 3,954 playoff points throughout his 16-year NBA career.

Remarkably, it wasn’t the only milestone that Durant reached during the game. KD also managed to move up on the all-time playoffs 3-pointers list, breaking Kobe Bryant’s record of 292 postseason triples.
Durant has undoubtedly been on a tear for the Warriors in the postseason. He continues to climb the playoff career ladder, and it won’t be surprising to see him increase his tally further.
Next up for Durant in the scoring list is Tony Parker who has 4,045 points. Before Game 3 against the Rockets, the two-time Finals MVP is averaging 34.3 points per game this postseason, which puts him on pace to surpass Parker on the record books in two to three games.
KD has career averages of 27.0 points, 7.1 points and 4.1 assists, and he will undoubtedly go down as one of the best offensive weapons in the history of the league.
