Kevin Durant second-youngest player to reach 20000-point plateau

Kevin Durant second-youngest player to reach 20000-point plateau

Hot off the press, "Sweet Lou" just nailed a new career-high of 50 points on 16/27 shooting and 8/16 from three-point territory in a 125-106 upset over the defending champion Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night, January 10 (Thursday Manila time). This season, his 11th in the NBA, KD is averaging 26.3 per night.

Durant now has 20,015 points, but Lou Williams stole this night, refusing to give in despite the Clippers having four starters out before the game started and losing another when C.J. Williams went down. His 3-point shot always appeared more natural than McGrady's.

Durant (calf) returned from a three-game absence to carry the load with point guard Stephen Curry (ankle) and shooting guard Klay Thompson (rest) out of the Golden State lineup.

Williams' gem included a 27-point third quarter where he went 8-of-11 from the field.

Clippers: Harrell's 16 points in the second quarter were two more than he had the entire game against Golden State.

Speaking of team records, DeMar DeRozan just scored 52 points last week to finally clinch the Toronto Raptors' single-game franchise record.

The Sacramento Kings achieved in entertaining their fans tonight with exciting basketball but were unable to leave the game with the win as they were defeated by the Los Angeles Clippers. You can't just command some computer nerd sitting in a room with no windows to "ENHANCE!" and get a perfectly clear image of some minor detail in a photograph.

In Houston, Chris Paul scored a season-high 37 points, and Eric Gordon added 30 as the Houston Rockets withstood a late run to get a 121-112 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night. They did - winning the series in 5 games. Golden State does not want to risk his health. This invites trouble against the Bucks, who are sixth percentage of forced turnovers and eighth in converting them into points.

While Durant got the accolades for reaching a point milestone, it was Williams who's scoring took center stage.

The deadline is February 8, 15 days earlier than a year ago and that means teams will have to choose to be a buyer or a seller before the All-Star break. LeBron James reached this number at a younger age than anyone in history when he reached it at the age of 28 years and 17 days.

He is one of just five players to have scored that many points before turning 30, along with James, Kobe Bryant, Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan, in that order.

"Man, that's some great company, and there's so many names I never thought I'd be in the same conversation with", Durant said. Steph Curry and Kevin Durant are 1-2 in the west, with both Klay Thompson and Draymond Green also in the top-seven.

Teodosic missed the past three games due to plantar fasciitis in his left foot.
