ESPN Stats reports that Durant’s shooting during the 2022-23 season has garnered him a feat only Michael Jordan has achieved in the ’80s. Durant is now the first player to score 13 consecutive 25-point games. Michael Jordan began with 16 straight games scoring 25 or more.
Even though Kyrie Irving is absent, KD is still able to lead the team.
