But behind the herculean effort from Lou Williams that netted him a career-high 50 points, the Clippers pulled off a shocking 125-106 victory over nemesis Golden State on Wednesday night at Oracle Arena, beating the Warriors for the first time since December 25, 2014.

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 entered Wednesday averaging 25.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, 5.3 assists and a career-high 2.1 blocks on the season. His 3-point shot always appeared more natural than McGrady's.

And despite the result going to the Warriors' favor, the Dubs' visit to Milwaukee last season was nearly equally electric and compelling as they edged out the Bucks 124-121, with all four of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Durant and Draymond Green combining for 92 of their 124 points for the game.

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

Golden State beat the Clippers 121-105 at the Staples Center on Saturday afternoon, and they were expected to win comfortably again on Wednesday night.

Speaking of team records, DeMar DeRozan just scored 52 points last week to finally clinch the Toronto Raptors' single-game franchise record.

Once Durant crosses that 20,000-point mark, he'll join LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan as one of five players to do so before turning 30. Aside from endlessly driving to the basket all game long seemingly by instinct, Brewer also snatched the rock 6 times, which definitely helped pumped those points up. "If somebody scores 50 on you the way he did, you've just got to pay homage and move on".

Try to watch this video and not get exhausted yourself from all the running you'll see. He finished with 12 points and has scored in double digits in seven straight games for the first time since 2015. They did - winning the series in 5 games. That sparked the Clippers to outscore Golden State 39-28 in the third period, and the Clippers never looked back. But he probably also understands that it's better to be cautious and make sure he's 100 percent healthy before returning to action, rather than rushing back because he wants to play and risking further injury.

Durant did so at 29 years and 103 days.

Griffin followed with a 3-pointer and Williams later scored on a short jumper, but the Kings pulled to within 117-115 on George Hill's free throw with 24.9 seconds left. Even teaming with other great scorers in the form of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, Durant has managed to maintain an average of at least 25 ppg every year since the start of his second season. "Because that's 80 percent of the battle, in my opinion", said Durant.
