Durant On Pace To Join 50-40-90 Club
Kevin Durant is on track to become just the sixth NBA player to shoot 50 percent from the field, 40 percent from three-point range and 90 percent from the free-throw line for an entire season.
“I don't know if I can keep it up for the whole season,” Durant said. “I've been shooting a lot of 3s lately. I've got to cut down on those. I've got to shoot better shots.”
Durant is now shooting 52.5 percent from the field, 40.2 from three-point range and 90.1 percent from the line.
Durant's shooting percentages add up to 182.8.
“Anytime you're over a 170 shooter, that's outstanding,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. “He's shooting at a level only a few guys in the history of the game have. He's done that all year. We hope he can continue that. He's so consistent, it's like Groundhog Day. Every day you see KD working on his game.”
