Kevin Durant is already considered one of the greatest players in NBA history. But tonight (Wednesday through Thursday) the Brooklyn star recorded a historic milestone as he overtook legendary Alan Iverson and climbed to No. 25 on the league's all-time leading scorers list. Durant, who scored 21 points in a 104: 123 victory over Boston, reached 24,388 points in his career and his next task would be to overtake Ray Allen, who is slightly ahead of him with 24,505 points.



At the top of the list by the way are still two active players: LeBron James of course in third place with 35,588 points and Carmelo Anthony joined the team with 27,670 points.



"It means a lot to me," Durant said excitedly after the game about the achievement, "I dedicated my life to this game at a young age. I saw all these players when I was a kid and now I overtake them. I wanted to be like them. I wanted to play in the NBA like them, and influence. "The league is like them. Iverson was sacred to me. One of those players I always wanted to emulate every time I went to play with friends. I imagined I would play like that, but to do it is really special."

Everyone is talking about the Brooklyn offense and its stars, but the Nets are also showing great defense this year. This time they stopped Boston on just 37 percent from the field and they are ranked sixth in the league’s defensive index. The strong defense combined with the attack that scored over 50 percent from the field, also greatly pleased James Harden who stated: "It was our best game this season. Harden, who contributed 20 points and 11 assists, added:" There have only been 20 games so far. But right now it was our best game and we need to build on that and continue like this. "



Brooklyn's ability to challenge this year's championship will face a serious test when it returns home and hosts Phoenix, its runner-up in its next game with 14 consecutive victories. Golden State, the Nets will want to make a statement in this game.



Durant for his part calmed the enthusiasm a bit when he said: "We understand that teams come to us and want to give it their all. But we are in November, should be at the peak of fitness when it comes to the playoffs. I'm not saying we can play, but win or lose, I do not really think it will testify to who We as a group. "

When they were two minutes left in overtime in a 114: 117 Lakers, LeBron drew the attention of the referee at two Indiana fans who belittled him.The judge in response drew the attention of one of the courtroom men who ordered the two to leave the place.Lebron, who looked very angry from this incident, whispered some curses but the evacuee fan was not really moved by him and on the way out made a sarcastic sigh of relief to get down on LeBron .
