NBA Showdown: Golden State Warriors at Milwaukee Bucks

NBA Showdown: Golden State Warriors at Milwaukee Bucks

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James took to Instagram to congratulate L.A. Clippers guard Lou Williams after his career performance in Thursday night's 125-106 win over the Golden State Warriors.

OAKLAND, Calif. - forward returns to action Wednesday against the needing just 25 points to reach 20,000 for his career. While it never started at the highest level, it hit rock bottom in the third when the Warriors scored 28 points. Then the biggest blow of them all when Curry tweaked his ankle during the morning shootaround and was ruled out.

But Golden State didn't feel like celebrating after the loss. The Bucks are the worst rebounding team in the league with just 38.6 per game.

Durant, who had a four-point play during the second quarter on the way to 14 points in the period, is at 29 the second-youngest player behind LeBron James and the first to reach the 20,000 mark as a member of the Warriors.

In their absence, Durant shined on the court, scoring 40 points alongside four rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one block in 31 minutes of action. As a Thunder fan, that had to sting - your team's best player deciding he'd rather compete alongside the enemy.




Try to watch this video and not get exhausted yourself from all the running you'll see. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Warriors are 12-point home favorites to knock off the Clippers, who opened as a 16.5-point underdog.

Klay Thompson also was out for defending champion Golden State as a scheduled rest day that Kerr and the training staff decided he needed after playing all 41 games so far. The Warriors had their 5 game winning streak snapped. And he made all 10 of his free throws. This invites trouble against the Bucks, who are sixth percentage of forced turnovers and eighth in converting them into points. Remember, after signing Kevin Durant, Golden State's "deepest roster in the league" isn't quite as deep these days. Golden State used its 14th different starting lineup, matching the total from last season.

Three other National Basketball Association players - Kobe Bryant, Wilt Chamberlain, and Michael Jordan - have reached 20,000 points before the age of 30, but all did it later in their 29th year than Durant, whose birthday is September 29. Steph Curry and Kevin Durant are 1-2 in the west, with both Klay Thompson and Draymond Green also in the top-seven.

"It was hard to stop him", Durant said of Williams. 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.
