Kevin Durant Drops 46 And Breaks Record
Total Pro Sports – Last night Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma Thunder set a new All Star record in the Rookies-Sophomores game scoring 46 points on the rookies, breaking the 2004 record previously held by Amare Stoudemire.
“Decked out in Day-Glo orange high-tops, Durant hit 17 of 25 shots from the field, four of eight from three-point range, and made all eight of his free throws. Durant also tied for the team lead with seven rebounds.”
The sophomore won the game 122-116, childhood friends Kevin Durant and Michael Beasley treated the Rookie Challenge like a playground duel back in Maryland.
“Kevin’s a great player and I’m just glad to be on the court with him,” said Beasley, like Durant a No. 2 overall pick in the draft. “I’m happy to be mentioned in the same breath as him.”
A definite star in the making, Kevin Durant will be a name nobody will ever forget. Maybe if he wasn’t playing for such an unknown team in Oklahoma he would get air time needed to make him into that star.
Did you even know he was 5th in the NBA in scoring at 25.5 points per game?
