FG%   3P%   FT % RPG   AST  STL    PTS
Kevin Durant .510 .409 .871 7.5 5.6 1.3 32.2
Blake Griffin .532 .275 .704 9.6 3.7 1.1 24.0
LeBron James .570 .378 .749 6.9 6.4 1.6 26.7

Durant has scored 25 or more points in 38 straight games and is very close to tying Michael Jordan‘s record from the 1986-87 season (40 in a row), which is the longest streak in the post-merger era. The only thing the Slim Reaper and the Thunder should be focusing on is catching the Spurs, who still have the top seed in the conference. James has been slowed down with a bum ankle for the past week, but he was still able to post a triple-double against the lowly Bucks with 17 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists. Griffin had a double-double in a win against the Mavericks but back spasms may keep him out a few games this week.
