Injury Report: Blake Griffin (concussion), Austin Rivers (ankle), Danilo Gallinari (glute), Patrick Beverley (knee) and Milos Tedodosic (foot) are all out for the Clippers.
Of course, any time the Warriors come to Milwaukee from now on, it will only bring up the memories of the Bucks putting a halt to their undefeated 24-game winning streak to begin the 2015-16 season (no official word on if there are 33-10 shirts being printed before the game yet). The Warriors rank 21st in points allowed in the paint per game (46.0). There was a moment where the Kings were trailing by only two points in the quarter, but the Clippers were able to construct a rally of their own which increased their lead back to 11 points at the end of the third. Then, Clippers guard Lou Williams simply took over.
In Houston, Chris Paul scored a season-high 37 points, and Eric Gordon added 30 as the Houston Rockets withstood a late run to get a 121-112 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night. "Because that's 80 percent of the battle, in my opinion", said Durant.
Instead, Williams has caught fire, posting career-highs for a Clippers team that's hanging around, despite only getting a few games from some of its best players. The loss spoiled a milestone night for Kevin Durant, as his 40 points put him above 20,000 for his National Basketball Association career and catapulted him into 8th place on the NBA's active career scoring chart.
The Warriors star reached the landmark at 29 years and 104 days old, while LeBron was 28 years and 17 days old when he scored his 20,000 career point. According to Oliver Maroney of DimeUPROXX, Wilt Chamberlain scored his 20,000th career point in his 499th career game. After the shot went in the basket, Durant waved to the crowd as fans stood and applauded.
Truth or Dare Trailer: Refuse the Dare and Die
A trailer has hit the internet for the upcoming movie " Truth or Dare ", and it looks like it will have horror fans very excited. Blumhouse Productions' Jason Blum produces and writer/director Jeff Wadlow executive produces.
While the Warriors definitely missed Steph and Klay, this is a game they should win easily over a short-handed Clippers team.
In fact, the four other players in the top five in blocks per game Myles Turner (2.2), Kristaps Porzingis (2.2), Anthony Davis (2.1) and Joel Embiid (2.0) teams are outside the top quartile of shot blocking squads: Indiana Pacers (20th), New York Knicks (11th), New Orleans Pelicans (12th) and Philadelphia 76ers (9th).
"My shot felt good", Durant said. "I figured (Koufos) was going to look to pass it. I was just taking it a day at a time, just trying to lock in, stay in the moment, and here I am".
"He is one of the all-time greats", said WarriorscoachSteve Kerr. "We just had a normal shootaround".
