Kevin Durant ties Michael Jordan in very impressive statistical category.
According to a report from the Elias Sports Bureau, per a tweet from ESPN’s Marc Stein, Kevin Durant is the first to do something this season since Michael Jordan more than 20 years ago.
After averaging 34.5 points-per-game in March, Durant became the only player since Jordan to average more than 33 points a game for three consecutive months since MJ did in the 1989-1990 season.
