Kevin Durant now tied Michael Jordan for the most consecutive 25-point games in the last 50 seasons at 40.
Quite the milestone for Durant, but it's not nearly close to over for him. He'll have the chance to break the record against the Suns on Sunday and then continue to add to it through the duration of the season. Yeah, we'd say he's pretty good.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The Red Sox are looking for an opportunity to give Brian Johnson his major league debut.
Johnson has a 2.92 ERA and 8.76 K/9 over 49 1/3 innings here in his first go-around with Triple-A Pawtucket. While the Red Sox would like to give him a taste of the majors, they'd obviously prefer to have a stronger rotation and not need to dip into their farm system as much as they have already. Steven Wright and Eduardo Rodriguez are getting a look right now. Should they fail and the struggles at the back end of the rotation continue, then perhaps we'll see Johnson at some point.
