(Kevin) Durant became the first player since (Michael) Jordan in 1986-87 to score at least 25 points in 40 straight games. Wilt Chamberlain owns the single-season record for such a streak, scoring at least 25 in 80 straight games. Oscar Robertson also did it in 46 straight.

“Everybody keeps putting me in the same sentence as Michael Jordan, but Wilt Chamberlain did it like 180 games in a row. So it’s a long ways to get up there,” Durant said before the game.
