Lou Williams Drops 50, Stuns Warriors

The Warriors are No.1 in points scored per game at 116. Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James, at 28, was the youngest to reach the mark in 2013. No other team has ever sent four players to All-Star games in consecutive years, according to ESPN.

The Warriors have already lost more regular-season games at home (six) than they did in all of last season (five), but also are the only team that hasn't so much as lost two in a row this season.

The Los Angeles Clippers figure to arrive in Sacramento flying high after finally solving a team that had owned them since Christmas 2014. "First, "[insert star player name here] is injured". CJ Williams left last night's game with a sprained ankle and he is questionable for tonight.

With the score tied at 105, Lou Williams missed a short shot and Bazemore made two free throws after being fouled in the lane with 23 seconds to play, putting Atlanta up 107-105.

Kevin Durant became the second-youngest player in National Basketball Association history to reach 20,000 career points during the Golden State Warriors' game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday at Oakland, Calif. Andre Iggy Iguodala, the 2015 NBA Finals MVP, only has four starts in 35 outings but he remains versatile as baking soda, averaging 5.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.5 assists while logging in just 26.3 minutes per.

Sweet Lou just can't do everything by himself, but he's trying.

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. But if Williams were to leave the Clippers, it would be his fourth team in as many seasons. Kevin Durant will play, even if his minutes are limited.

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.

As for Curry, he missed 11 games when he originally sprained his right ankle on December 6 in New Orleans. Full team rosters will be announced January 25. The question is, which one is closer to their reality?

To be fair, Corey Brewer still fulfilled his job description en route to tying then-teammate Kevin Love's franchise record of 51 points. They also lead in points differential, whacking foes by an average margin of 9.9 a contest. "I don't see why [the blueprint to get four] would change". Four of their starters were injured.

Brewer's reign atop the Timberwolves leaderboards would turn out to be short-lived, as journeyman Mo Williams sneakily broke his record by a single point in his lone season in Minnesota. That year, McGrady shot almost 39% from 3-point range on 6 attempts per game. The Clippers are right in the thick of the Western Conference playoff race, receiving nightly contributions from a number of players who weren't expected to have big rotation roles this season. Besides, his All-Star selection only happened because an injured Ray Allen failed to replace an injured Jameer Nelson, who in turn failed to replace an injured Chris Bosh. But other candidates could include second-year guard Patrick McCaw or Quinn Cook, who will be with the team after having a recent stint with the Warriors' G-league affiliate in Santa Cruz.

Nothing about their last 21 games has been surprising.
