Durant breaks record

Wednesday, April 09, 2014

PHOENIX - NBA superstar Kevin Durant has scored 38 points to pass the legendary Michael Jordan with his 41st straight game of 25-plus points but even that wasn't enough to help the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Phoenix Suns.

Goran Dragic led a half dozen Suns players in double figures with 26 points as the Phoenix rallied to beat the high-flying Thunder 122-115 on Sunday and move into sole possession of eighth place in the Western Conference standings.

Durant now has at least 25 points in 41 consecutive games to surpass Jordan, who had 40 back in the 1986-87 season. Durant's streak is now the third longest in NBA history.

"I don't really care about it," Durant told The Oklahoman newspaper. "I wish it was over."

Durant last failed to score 25 or more points on January 5 against Boston.

He has won the NBA scoring title in four of the last five seasons and heading into Sunday's contest he was again the league's leading scorer, averaging 32.1 points a game.
