In a game where the Phoenix Suns fell short of their second win of the season, forward Kevin Durant managed to etch his name in NBA history. Durant entered the matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers needing 37 points to surpass the legendary Hakeem Olajuwon on the NBA's all-time scoring list. With notable players like Bradley Beal and Kevin Durant absent, the Suns leaned heavily on Durant to shoulder the offensive load for the team. Durant delivered an outstanding performance, scoring 30 points within the first three quarters, with an impressive 15 points coming in the third quarter alone. As the game approached its final moments, Durant achieved the historic milestone by surpassing Olajuwon's scoring record.
