    Kevin Durant becomes second-youngest player to join NBA's elite 20,000-point club

    Jan 11, 2018

    OAKLAND, California — Kevin Durant became the 44th player in NBA history to score 20,000 career points on Wednesday night (Thursday, Manila time).

    Durant reached the milestone on a pull-up jumper from the left wing at the 1:41 mark of second quarter. The Warriors announced his accomplishment on the main scoreboard and Durant received a standing ovation, shaking his head in acknowledgment while still very much in game mode.

    The NBA Finals MVP returned from a three-game absence with a strained right calf and scored 25 points in the first half against the Clippers — KD's biggest half of the season. He came in needing exactly 25 points for 20,000.

    Durant had a four-point play during the second quarter on the way to 14 points in the period.
