Kevin Durant Achieves Career Milestone as Phoenix Suns Clash with Dallas Mavericks

In Arizona on Monday evening, the Phoenix Suns are set to face the Dallas Mavericks.

Kevin Durant is making his mark in his 1,011th career game, tying Jermaine O’Neal for the 139th spot on the NBA’s all-time regular season games played list.

Following O’Neal, Durant’s next target is Nicolas Batum, who has played 1,013 games.
