Kevin Durant May Join 50-40-90 Club
Durant has a chance to become only the sixth player in NBA history to join the 50-40-90 club, a fraternity reserved for only the very best of the league’s best shooters. It’s a club that honors consistency and recognizes players who go an entire season shooting at least 50 percent from the field, 40 percent from 3-point range and 90 percent from the free throw line.
Durant admits he has aimed to join that select list of players since his second season. But this season, Durant’s most efficient yet, he appears to have his best shot.
Before Sunday’s 104-93 win over Indiana, Durant was shooting 51.5 percent from the field, 45.7 percent from 3-point range and 90.1 percent from the foul line, all career highs.
