It is hard to describe the current run that Kevin Durant is on in games where he has been healthy over the past five months.
When you are talking about one of the greatest shooters in NBA history, it is almost expected. However, words can barely do justice to what Durant has been able to accomplish on the court this season.
If he did not suffer a sprained MCL, resulting in a two-month-long absence, KD could very well be a frontrunner for MVP at 34 years old.
Take a look at some of these wild stats that Durant has compiled this season:
- While starting, Durant’s team holds a 20-2 record dating back to November 25th.
- Since making his debut with the Suns, Durant has shot 29 of 42, which is a .690% rate.
- Durant leads the NBA (with a minimum of 30 attempts) in free throw percentage; he has missed only seven of his last 139 attempts (.950%).
- KD holds a +/- total of +122 over his last ten games (leading NBA).
At 34 years old, it is truly remarkable what Kevin Durant has been able to achieve before and after his injury.
To come back from a two-month break and lead the Suns to three-straight victories on a nearly .700 field goal percentage is almost unfair.
And the good news for Suns’ fans is that they will have the chance to watch him at the Footprint Center for the first time in action against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday at 7:00 PM MST.
