With a blow-by dunk late in the 4th quarter of the Suns’ stunning 115-114 loss to the Spurs, Kevin Durant became the 12th player in NBA history to surpass 27,000 career points.
Durant is the second active player with 27,000 points, joining all-time scoring leader LeBron James (38,740).
Durant reached the milestone in 990 career games. Only three players got there faster: Wilt Chamberlain (780), Michael Jordan (852) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (965).
Assuming good health, Durant should enter the top 10 before the All-Star break. He needs 312 points to catch Elvin Hayes (27,313) and another 96 points to surpass Moses Malone (27,409).
