Kevin Durant would need to score more than 70 points Wednesday night to surpass current points leader Carmelo Anthony to take the 2012-13 NBA scoring title.
The sidelined Anthony will take the title with no contest from Durant.
Durant posted a photo on his Instagram account on Wednesday morning stating that he will sit out of Wednesday night’s game. He offered a message to those disappointed that he wouldn’t be going for the scoring title saying, “Oh well!”
Anthony is averaging 28.7 points per game this season, and Durant is averaging 28.1 per game. Even having played in 14 more games than an injured Anthony, Durant would have needed a monster night to catch up.
Check out Durant’s message in the photo below.
