Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant moved to within two games of the record for scoring 30 points in consecutive matches last night, producing a stunning individual haul of 46 to help leave the Portland Trail Blazers ruing the MVP's late showing in a 105-97 victory.

Durant came alive in the fourth quarter to deliver for the Thunder when it counted yet again, scoring 11 points in the last 12 minutes in a display which also included six successful three-point attempts from a possible seven.

The 25-year-old has now dropped a minimum of 30 points for eight games in a row and sits just  a pair of repeat performances behind the record for that feat, jointly held by Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.
