Kevin Durant second-youngest player to reach 20000-point plateau

Kevin Durant Golden State Warriors vs Detroit Pistons 08122017

The Golden State Warriors are coming off their loss in Los Angeles on Wednesday. His overall accuracy on non-corner attempts * a href="https://stats.nba.com/players/shooting/?Season=2017-18&SeasonType=Regular%20Season&DistanceRange=By%20Zone&sort=Above%20the%20Break%203%20FG%20PCT&dir=1&PerMode=Totals&CF=Above%20the%20Break%203%20FGA*GE*120" target="_blank" rel="noopener" *(45.1 percent) is the best in the league among those with at least 120 attempts.

The Warriors, meanwhile, still lead the Houston Rockets out west by three games. He can still get to the hole in transition and he's not hesitating on shots, they're simply not going in right now.

Stephen Curry's record for 3s in a season - 402, done two seasons ago - isn't in jeopardy.

In the Eastern Conference, Cleveland's LeBron James (1,622,838), Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo (1,480,954) and Philadelphia's Joel Embiid (784,287) are now the top three frontcourt players in the fan vote. The Bucks are in second place; tied with Detroit in the Central Division.

But they have starkly different opinions on the newly introduced format in which the player who receives the most votes in each conference will serve as a captain, choosing his team from the pool of players voted in as starters and reserves.

Speaking of team records, DeMar DeRozan just scored 52 points last week to finally clinch the Toronto Raptors' single-game franchise record. Giannis "The Greek Freak" Antetokounmpo is bursting into a superstar in Milwaukee while CJ McCollum is boldly stepping out of Damian Lillard's shadow with his own All-Star turn in Portland.

With Gabriel Jesus set to be sidelined for the next two months, Guardiola is wasting no time in shoring up his squad's depth.

Curry had been practically unstoppable in five games since returning from the 11-game absence with his initial ankle injury, averaging 35.2 points over that span.

Durant will pass Antawn Jamison for 43rd on the NBA's All-Time scoring list with 43 more points. It would require a 34-6 finish (or a 70-win pace), but that's what most people expected from this team heading into the season.

Clippers: At the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night. Andre Iguodala can play some guard minutes, but that is about where the cup runs dry.

Injury Report: Clippers point guard Milos Teodosic has missed three games with plantar fascitis in his foot and he is questionable for tonight. Sending a double at Lou Williams, especially given that his teammates were not good, would have slowed down his 50-point night. Moreover, opponents are scoring 18.4 points per game off the gifts.

PROTECT THE BALL: The Warriors are prone to turnovers, committing 15.6 per game; only the Lakers and 76ers commit more. The top scorer has been Steph Curry.

The Warriors will enter Friday night's game 33-9, a step down from the winning pace they were at in their first year with eight-time All-Star Kevin Durant in the fold.
