James Harden and Kevin Durant are often the ones putting up noteworthy statistics for the Brooklyn Nets on a night-to-night basis. Harden logs a double-double almost every night, if not a triple-double, and continues to facilitate as well as anyone in the NBA, while Durant is showing he’s still one of the best scorers the game has ever seen, even after his Achilles injury.

But it wasn’t Durant (health and safety protocols), Harden or even Kyrie Irving (finger) who did something unique on Saturday against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Jeff Green scored 10 points in Brooklyn’s 124-108 loss. Not his highest-scoring performance as a member of the Nets, but Green’s output helped him reach 12,000 career points.

Green is now only the second player in NBA history to eclipse the 12,000-point mark while playing for his 10th different team, as pointed out by Justin Kubatko, the creator of Basketball Reference, on Twitter. Jim Jackson (1992-2006), is the only other player to accomplish this feat.
