Durantula vs the Black Mamba

In Dave' writeup I started to talk about how crazy Durant' statistics are over the last 10 games... It's not just us that he's abusing...

Then I started thinking about Kobe' dominance after Shaq was dealt, freeing Kobe to take a bunch more shots... With Westbrook out for at least a bit longer, Durant will be given the opportunity:

Do you believe Durant can top Kobe' impressive 19 game streak from Dec. 12, 2005 to Jan 22, 2006?

-*-*-*-

Durant is simply amazing right now... In the past 10 games, he is averaging:

38.3 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 6.1 apg, 1.8 spg, 0.7 bpg

FGs: 12-23.2 (FG% of 51.7%)
FTs: 11.7-13.1 (FT% of 88.0%)
3Ps: 2.6-6.7 (3P% of 38.8%)

OKC record: 7-3 in these 10 games

But, can Durant match Kobe' 19 game streak from the 2005-06 season?

Kobe' averages in the 19 games(from Dec 12, 2005 to Jan 22, 2006):

42.9ppg, 6.2rpg, 4.4apg, 1.6spg, and 0.5bpg

FGs: 14.0-29.9 (FG% of 46.8%)
FTs: 11.9-13.9 (FT% of 85.2%)
