Durant poised to become 2nd youngest to 20000 points

  • Kevin Durant Golden State Warriors vs Detroit Pistons 08122017

He dangled that signature mouthpiece from his teeth in sheer delight.

Yes, Golden State's sharp-shooting star is feeling it again, and he's proud to be, in his words, "that presence that kind of gets us going". Over his last 10 games, Williams is averaging almost 32 points per game.

Although it was clear that there were similarities between the two players, what most observers noted was that Durant was a much better shooter from long distance.

As for Curry, he missed 11 games when he originally sprained his right ankle on December 6 in New Orleans. Stephen Curry led the team with 32 points and nine assists, Draymond Green added a season-high 23 points with 10 assists while Klay Thompson chipped in with 19 points. They are 2-5 in their past seven home contests, their only victories in a stretch that has seen them play 10 straight games in California. To overcome the Warriors, Lou Williams came through and delivered the most explosive scoring performance of his life: a career-best 50 points on 16-of-27 shooting. He would go on to lead the league in scoring that year, averaging 28.1 ppg.

Regardless, the most that Los Angeles can offer him is an average annual value of $10.5 million over four years.

Dethroning the Warriors require a strong faith and plenty of hope that Curry and Co. will miss an unlikely ton of shots in the playoffs. And that's a problem for the disjointed Warriors as they start their toughest road trip of the season (upcoming games at Toronto, Cleveland, Chicago and Houston) tonight. And neither is Steve Kerr. I love being held to that high standard.

I'd say that pretty much settles is. Then the biggest blow of them all when Curry tweaked his ankle during the morning shootaround and was ruled out. It's something David West and Green respect in particular, even if it's not the showiest talent for the shoot-from-anywhere point guard. "I felt I belonged in the National Basketball Association and now I'm getting the opportunity". "The rest of us sort of understand and expect him to do what he's going to do". I don't think we've seen the type of footwork he has.

And once he's hot, every shot is a good one, no matter the distance or means of getting it. "I know myself. That's what I'm saying". "They kept falling and I just stayed aggressive". A potent offense has largely overshadowed Golden State's lagging defense: Over their past seven games, the Warriors own the league's fifth-worst defensive rating.

"He's fast with the ball but he's not the fastest guy in the world". Outside of him, though, there was hardly any production.

Curry chuckled about that idea.

Curry, on the other hand, said he'd be happy to "usher in the new system", which would be like picking a team at the playground.

But one solid shot blocker does not an elite shot blocking team make.
