(BoopNote: This list was compiled from various sources — such as ESPN Stats, Elias, basketball-reference.com and quora.com — and while we believe it to be complete, there may be another 40-40 game floating around somewhere in history we were not able to find. We'll update it and repost if one pops up.)
Sunday night, Kevin Durant scored 51 points and Russell Westbrook added 40 and the Thunder pair became the 14th teammates (in 13 games; we'll explain) to each score 40 points in a game. They are the first to do so in a regular season game since 1996.
They also became just the third pair to go 50-40, and the first since 1983.
Two pairs of teammates on opposing teams (Nuggets and Pistons) each went 40+ on Dec. 13, 1983.
