Kevin Durant Matches Feat Not Seen Since MJ 34 Years Ago

It's been a rough start to the season for the Brooklyn Nets, and Kevin Durant has not been a happy camper. But he's still balling out like Kevin Durant. Thursday night, he accomplished a feat not seen since Michael Jordan did it 34 years ago, scoring at least 25 points for his 16th consecutive game to start the season.

The 35 points in the 109-107 win over the Portland Trail Blazers now has Durant averaging 30.6 points this season, along with shooting 53% from the field and 91% from the line. He's also averaging 6.6 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.8 blocks. 

He's doing all this despite extreme frustration with how things have gone this season, between the team's slow start and another controversy over Kyrie Irving and his off-court drama and suspension. Earlier this week, after a blowout loss, Durant threw shade at his teammates and the overblown expectations on his shoulders.

The Nets are now 7-9 and in 11th place in the Eastern Conference. But they are getting a certain suspended point guard back this weekend.
