Durant becomes second-youngest player to reach 20000 National Basketball Association points

Stephen Curry pumped his fists and flexed his biceps.

The Warriors played without Curry and Klay Thompson in a recent game against the Clippers, who throttled Golden State behind 50 points from Lou Williams.

"When you've got a guy as talented as Steph, he is who he is", teammate David West said. It's the most points scored in a player's first two games conference games in Big 12 history (he scored 37 the game before). Klay Thompson has played in all but 1 game this season for the Warriors. "We just had a normal shootaround and he was in his usual game day routine with Q [Warriors assistant coach Bruce Fraser] and he just rolled his ankle somehow", Kerr continued. And he made all 10 of his free throws.

The two-time MVP has scored 29 or more points in seven straight games.

Curry had been practically unstoppable in five games since returning from the 11-game absence with his initial ankle injury, averaging 35.2 points over that span as well as 5.6 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 1.4 steals in 32.4 minutes.

The Western Conference player of the week for last week, Curry strained his left knee in the first half, headed to the locker room to have it taped and then returned.

The Warriors had a four-point lead at halftime, but Lou Williams scored 27 points by himself in the third quarter, which was the most by any player in a single quarter this year. "We won't really evaluate that until tomorrow", Kerr said. He was struck in the forehead by an accidental elbow from Golden State Warriors center JaVale McGee. Khris Middleton is second on the team, with 20.3 points per game. They've won five of their last seven while allowing an average of 117.0 points per game.

The Nuggets held the Warriors to a season-low scoring performance here last time that snapped their 11-game winning streak. Our dream matchup of the Golden State Warriors vs. the NBA All-Stars is one step closer to becoming a reality.

Denver got 22 points from Gary Harris, and 21 apiece from Jamal Murray and Trey Lyles. "But he did look good today and he went through everything". "We weren't connected and they were". George Gervin and Allen Iverson have each earned 4 scoring titles throughout their careers; and yet, they have one appearance in the Finals collectively between the two of them.

"I don't want to do it", Durant said to The Athletic.

Golden State ranks first in blocks per game (8.3) while Milwaukee ranks fifth (5.2). The only player to ever reach the 20,000-point mark quicker than KD was LeBron James, who hit the mark back in 2013 while playing with the Heat.

Griffin sat out Monday's 108-107 home win over the Atlanta Hawks, and is unlikely to be cleared for Wednesday's rematch with the Warriors.

Regardless of who picks the team, Warriors forward Draymond Green wants to make National Basketball Association history by sending four players from the same team to back-to-back All-Star Games.
