Earlier this season, Kevin Durant eclipsed 20,000 career points.
On Wednesday, the Warriors forward passed a local legend for 40th place on the NBA's all-time scoring list.
Durant entered the game against the Wizards trailing Mitch Richmond by three points. With a free throw at the 8:15 mark of the first quarter, Durant registered the 20,498th point of his career, passing Richmond's 20,497.
Durant went on to finish the first quarter with 16 points.
Spurs big man Pau Gasol currently ranks 39th on the all-time list. He will keep moving up with Durant. The pair should pass Hall of Famers George Gervin, David Robinson and Bob Pettit over the next few weeks.
