Clippers rout Warriors in battle of injury-riddled squads

On a night when Kevin Durant scored his 20,000th point in the National Basketball Association, the Warriors lost to the makeshift Los Angeles Clippers 125-106. This season, his 11th in the NBA, KD is averaging 26.3 per night.

With 1:41 remaining in the second quarter, Durant swished a 22-foot two-point jumper for his 20,000th career point.

Even after being traded from Toronto to the Orlando Magic, Ross never really broke out, only averaging 12.4 points (already a career-high average) in 24 starting appearances.

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors have won seven of their last eight games and they will be gunning for a sixth straight win after taking down the Nuggets in a 124-114 home win on Monday. He handed out five assists as Golden State raced ahead 27-20 — a far cry from the Warriors' previous performance in a 96-81 loss to Denver at Oracle Arena on December 23. The Bucks are the worst rebounding team in the league with just 38.6 per game. Durant is the second-youngest to get there, behind LeBron James. He would spend one season there, averaging slightly above 20 points per game, before the franchise relocated to Oklahoma City. No other team has ever sent four players to All-Star games in consecutive years, according to ESPN.

Instead, the Clippers have rallied around Williams and DeAndre Jordan while getting production from normal end-of-the-bench-type of players who have stepped up in the absence of the bigger names.

The KTM rider has been transported by medical helicopter to the bivouac after being ruled out of finishing the fourth stage. He finished the stage at 33 position, which placed him at 24 position in the overall rankings.

As you can see, underneath the number 35 is the word "SNIPE".

Houston is well on its way to breaking the record it set for most 3s by a team, done last season, and done in the previous season by Golden State. The good news is that Klay Thompson is back after missing Wednesday's loss to rest. They did - winning the series in 5 games. "We forced them to finish that game out".

Durant became the eighth active player to reach the milestone, joining Dirk Nowitzki, LeBron, Carmelo Anthony, Vince Carter, Dwyane Wade, Pau Gasol and Joe Johnson.

His free-throw percentage is * a href="https://stats.nba.com/players/traditional/?sort=FT_PCT&dir=-1&Season=2017-18&SeasonType=Regular%20Season&PerMode=Totals&CF=FTA*GE*100" target="_blank" rel="noopener" *Top 5 among those who get to the line often and he is phenomenal on above the break three-pointers. Only James at 28 reached the mark quicker. While Durant managed just seven third quarter points, Williams was unstoppable in his effort to will the Clippers to victory. Assuming he continues to score at least 1,700 points per year, he will quickly surpass the next milestone marker of 25,000 at some point within the next three years.
