DENVER - Perhaps most shocking about Kevin Durant scoring 52 points against the Dallas Mavericks on Friday night is that it marked only the second time in his career the NBA's three-time scoring champ had reached half-a-hundred.
And that's at any level - high school, college or pro. Durant modestly disregards his 66-point outing at Harlem's Rucker Park on Aug. 1, 2011.
Presumably more 50-plus outings await the Thunder's affable 24-year-old, who now trails Wilt Chamberlain by 116 career 50-point games.
Both of Durant's 50-point efforts required overtime for him to get there.
