Even Kevin Durant 'Never Envisioned' Reaching His Latest Career Milestone

Nuggets: Denver limited its turnovers to 11 after committing a season-high 26 at Sacramento two days earlier that led to 40 Kings points.

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.

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.

The Golden State Warriors are all over the All-Star game voting returns. Shaun Livingston shot just 1-3 from the field, finishing with a tentative 8 points in 25 minutes.

The former University of California standout will return to the San Francisco Bay Area on Wednesday night on the heels of 13- and 11-point contests in his first two National Basketball Association games, including Saturday against Golden State. If your favorite stars like LeBron James, Kevin Durant or Steph Curry nail such a game, extensive highlights and analyses from multiple media outlets are sure to follow.

Houston's James Harden has a very comfortable lead over Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo in the scoring race, and Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook (who could average a triple-double again) has about a one-assist-per-game lead over Harden and Washington's John Wall in the battle for the assist title. "If somebody scores 50 on you the way he did, you've just got to pay homage and move on". After a foul on the defensive end of the floor sent the Clippers to the line, Oracle Arena acknowledged Durant's feat, as he joined an elite club only 43 other players in league history hold a membership with.

As you can see, underneath the number 35 is the word "SNIPE". "We forced them to finish that game out".

The Clippers also got back point guard Milos Teodosic, who had sat out three straight games due to a flare-up of plantar fasciitis. Who scored the most points in a single game under the Clipper banner?

In a 32-point, nine-assist performance against Denver on Monday, Curry wound up 9 for 17 overall while making 5 of 10 3-pointers.

Durant did so at 29 years and 103 days. Durant reached 25 before halftime. The only other players to reach this plateau before the age of 30 were Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain. Green is campaigning for teammates Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant. He is expected to miss four weeks.

Yet health has been a major issue for Durant in recent years, with injuries costing him 55 games in the 2014-15 campaign and a combined 30 in the past two seasons.
