Kevin Durant Gets First Career Triple-Double As Oklahoma City Rolls By Golden State


Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant is one of the NBA’s brightest young stars and one of the most natural scorers of the basketball that we have ever seen. The scary thing for Durant’s opponents is that the former Texas Longhorns star continues to improve and he is only getting better.

On Sunday, in a 119-109 win over the Golden State Warriors, Durant reached a new career milestone.

Durant recorded the first triple-double of his career with a great all around performance that goes to show Durant is developing into more than just a brilliant scoring machine. Durant’s line on the night was 25 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists. He also added two steals.

Thunder head coach Scott Brooks praised his star forward for the performance.

“Some guys can just pass, some guys can just shoot, some guys can just rebound. Obviously, with Kevin, he can do many things on the floor and we always have to challenge him because we don’t know how good he will end up being,” he said.

In the first five games of the season, Durant could not eclipse the 25 point mark but he is turning up his game. With the performance on Sunday, Durant now has six straight games of scoring at least 25 points.
