Kevin Durant scored 25 first-half points in the Golden State Warriors' game against the LA Clippers, with his last bucket taking him to 20,000 career points, Thursday (PHL time) at the Oracle Arena.

Durant made history too, accomplishing the feat before the age of 30, something only LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Wilt Chamberlain, and Michael Jordan accomplished. In fact, he's the second youngest player in the NBA to pull it off, behind only LeBron James.

The second overall pick of the 2007 NBA Draft is the 44th player in NBA history to score that many points, and he did so in his 737th career game.
