Kevin Durant, a four-time NBA scoring champion, has climbed to 13th place on the NBA's all-time career points list, surpassing Oscar Robertson.

The Phoenix Suns star achieved the feat during a game against the Chicago Bulls, where he scored 20 points on an efficient 7-for-10 shooting.

With this, he now has a total of 26,727 points in his career.

Durant's next target is to surpass Hakeem Olajuwon, who is currently in 12th place on the list. 

He is also set to catch up with the players at No. 11, Elvin Hayes, and No. 10, Moses Malone, as they are less than 1,000 points away.

Durant is expected to erase the 219-point gap with Olajuwon by the end of the season.

Durant's impressive rise up the career points list reinforces his status as one of the greatest scorers in NBA history.

His 27.28-point career average ranks fourth all-time behind Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain, and Elgin Baylor, with Jordan holding the record at 30.12 points per game.

This latest milestone is a testament to Durant's exceptional talent and hard work throughout his career, and fans will undoubtedly be watching to see if he can continue his ascent up the NBA's all-time career points list.
