Thunder's Kevin Durant on scoring streak: 'I wish it was over'
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant has put together an impressive scoring streak this season, amassing 25 points or more in 41 straight games. Despite his achievements, Durant says he is looking forward to the day when the streak ends.
The last time Durant failed to score 25 was Jan. 5 against the Boston Celtics, when he scored 21 points in 27 minutes of a Thunder blowout.
"I don't really care about it," Durant said Sunday, via the Oklahoman. "I wish it was over."
Wilt Chamberlain has the longest streak of scoring 25 points or more, doing so in 106 straight games. The only other person with a longer streak than Durant is Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson, whose streak lasted 47 games.
Durant is averaging a league-high 32.1 points per game this season for the Thunder, who are 4.5 games back of the San Antonio Spurs for the Western Conference's top seed. 2014 NBA playoffs: Current projected matchups
