Default Durant's Last 30 Games

At the risk of sounding like 28renroy, what Durant has done over the last 30 games is absurd.

It was 30 games ago Durant had his first 30 point game of the season after 8-straight games to start the season without scoring 30+. The numbers - especially the scoring/efficiency numbers - he's putting up in this stretch are ridiculous.

39.6 MPG, 30.5 PPG, 6.9 RPG, 4.3 APG, 1.5 SPG, 1.3 BPG, 2.9 TOPG, .534/.412/.907

Averaging 30-7-4-1.5-1.3 on 53/41/91 shooting and OKC is 24-6 in that stretch.

Bu bu today's defenses make it impossible for high scoring perimeter oriented players to shoot over 50%.

Excellent play. My only qualm is that the rebounding has gone down (it seemed like he was pulling down 14-15 with regularity early in the season), though I guess that could just mean you guys aren't playing 5 on 4 anymore with Perk on the floor (5 vs 4.5 isn't much, but it's something).

Do you think he can pull off 30 on 50/40/90?

He wont hit 30 I feel, but 50/40/90 is highly probable. The 25 to 30 point mark is Durants bread and butter with a healthy team. He could hit 30 if he wanted to, but he is trying to involve the whole team more.

Don't think he'll get up to 30 PPG by season's end; and it's going to be hard to keep his 3P% over 40% if he keeps shooting this many threes. He's gone back to shooting 4-5 a game like the last few years. Earlier in the season he was only averaging 2-3 a game I believe. But, if there's one player in the league right now who can have a 50/40/90 season, it's Durant.

I asked this question in another thread the other day. What if Durant was on a different team without another 20+ PPG scorer and two other 15 PPG scorers? Meaning, if he was on a worse team where he was the only player who could consistently get his own shot. For instance, what if he and Harden switched places, and Durant was playing in that run-n-gun offense with no other reliable scorers? How many PPG would he average? 35? More? Less?

In the right situation, I don't think it's out of the question that he cold average around 35 PPG.

The only thing good about this is the 30.5 PPG, other than that nothing impressive.

The 30.5 ppg is not even the most impressive thing. the fg% and 3p% are way more impressive considering how much he plays and shoots.
