KD scored his 20,000th career point with 1:41 remaining in the second quarter and finished with 40 points on the night but he was out shined by Lou Williams, who poured in a game-high 50 points, including 27 in the third quarter alone, in the Clippers' 125-106 victory.

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. On the other side, the over is 5-0 in the Warriors' last five games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

The team is third best in the league, with just 3.9 of its field goal attempts rejected per game - bested only by the Spurs (3.6) and Milwaukee (3.8).

At this stage of his career, while in a Thunder uniform, Kevin Durant had managed to average 28.6 ppg, on averages of 48.7%, 38.5%, and 88.3%, while competing in 98% of his team's games.

It was a special night for Kevin Durant, after he became the second-youngest player - behind LeBron James - to reach his 20,000th National Basketball Association (NBA) point. "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. You could nearly see Durant stepping on the throat of the entire Cavaliers team, at that moment.

The Clippers, winners in seven of their last ten games, will be back in action on Thursday night, as they're scheduled for a match-up against the Sacramento Kings inside the Golden 1 Center. You're not going to win many games if that happens.

Durant scored his 25th point on a pull-up crossover midrange jumper.

Talks on terrorism can go ahead with Pakistan
Pakistani-based Dawn quoted officials as saying the meeting between the two NSAs as "good" and "useful". The external affairs ministry said: "The focus of the talks was on terror, cross-border terrorism".

The Warriors are 30-6 when they score above 100 points, while the Bucks are 18-11.

So, in summary, Mo Williams now holds the Minnesota Timberwolves' single-game scoring record, beating defensive specialist Corey Brewer.

Fellow guard Klay Thompson will also not play on Wednesday.

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.

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.

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. "He's pretty strong but he's not the strongest guy in the world, but his footwork is so good that for what speed he may not have, it makes him way faster because of how good his footwork is", Green said. Stephen Curry led the team with 32 points and nine assists, Draymond Green added a season-high 23 points with 10 assists while Klay Thompson chipped in with 19 points. He is expected to miss four weeks.
