Milestone puts Durant in rarefied company

Like, how do you defend someone who can do this? If you're a basketball person you understand that footwork is sort of the foundation.

While Durant got the accolades for reaching a point milestone, it was Williams who's scoring took center stage. Green is campaigning for teammates Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant.

"I didn't think he played that well, but this is Steph Curry".

Maybe Steve Kerr should cool it with tongue-in-cheek predictions about how well opponents will fare against his Golden State Warriors.

As a point of comparison, the top five teams in blocks have far fewer players with more than 20 blocks: Toronto Raptors (5), San Antonio Spurs (5), Memphis Grizzlies (3), Portland Trail Blazers (4). His 3-point shot always appeared more natural than McGrady's. Right now they are a game out of the eight-seed, just behind the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Western Conference player of the week for last week, Curry strained his left knee in the first half, headed to the locker room to have it taped and then returned.

Williams' gem included a 27-point third quarter where he went 8-of-11 from the field.

"It looks like his 100th game, the way he's moving out there", Thompson said. "My second year, I wanted to average 25".

"His pull-up three is a cash shot".

But once he arrived in Oakland, and was put in de facto defensive coordinator Ron Adams' scheme, Durant blocked shots at a career high rate of 1.6 per game previous year.

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. For the season, he's averaging 22.9 PPG, exactly eight more PPG than he averaged last season and nearly 10 PPG above his career average. "We never quit working".

While the Bucks will similarly be without one of their cornerstone players when they host the Warriors, this time in Jabari Parker, they obviously sport a new wrinkle with Eric Bledsoe now in the mix at the point of attack. He can still get to the hole in transition and he's not hesitating on shots, they're simply not going in right now.

That said, Durant's lost 2014-15 season - he played only 27 games due to a foot injury - may hurt him in the chase for the most points ever. "Hopefully the next couple of days he'll clear that hurdle and be ready to go". As of Thursday afternoon, 58 percent of public bets have come in on the Clippers.

Draymond Green is a triple-double threat (10.8 points, 7.7 rebounds and 7.7 assists per) despite an explosive temper and a misguided crusade against officiating.
