This season, Durant is averaging 19.4 shot attempts, largely because Westbrook has been sidelined. Durant averaged just 18 shots with Westbrook in the lineup.
"There's probably a handful of times I shot 30 times," Durant said. "I'm sure he's shot more 30-shot games than I have over his career. But I guess the guy is just trying to challenge himself. I don't know. But you guys are blowing that up for no reason."
If you're scoring at home, James has 27 30-shot games in his 11 NBA seasons. In his seven seasons, Durant has seven 30-shot nights, the equivalent of James' 30-shot games in the 2005-06 season.
