This season, his 11th in the NBA, KD is averaging 26.3 per night. Kevin Durant was Golden State's high scorer with 40 points on 14-for-18 shooting.
He had 37 points in the second half, the most points for a Clipper in a half since the team moved to Los Angeles. And he did it on a tidy 16-27 shooting, going 8-16 from three and 10-10 from the free throw line.
The former University of California standout will return to the San Francisco Bay Area on Wednesday night on the heels of 13- and 11-point contests in his first two National Basketball Association games, including Saturday against Golden State.
When Durant knocked down a 21-foot jumper on Montrezl Harrell with 1:41 left in the first half, it gave him 20,000 points for his career, making him the second-youngest player to accomplish that feat behind James. He would spend one season there, averaging slightly above 20 points per game, before the franchise relocated to Oklahoma City. "We just had a normal shootaround and he was in his usual game day routine with Q [Warriors assistant coach Bruce Fraser] and he just rolled his ankle somehow", Kerr continued.

So, in summary, Mo Williams now holds the Minnesota Timberwolves' single-game scoring record, beating defensive specialist Corey Brewer.
The Wizards shot 52.6 percent from the field but lost their second straight after a four-game winning streak.
In Houston, Chris Paul scored a season-high 37 points, and Eric Gordon added 30 as the Houston Rockets withstood a late run to get a 121-112 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night. 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. Only LeBron James (28 years, 17 days) reached the mark quicker. With Durant serving as the team's only presence from beyond the arc, the rest of Golden State's offense combined to shoot 2-for-16 from three-point range.
While Durant got the accolades for reaching a point milestone, it was Williams who's scoring took center stage. The only other players to reach this plateau before the age of 30 were Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain. Assuming he continues to score at least 1,700 points per year, he will quickly surpass the next milestone marker of 25,000 at some point within the next three years.
"It was hard to stop him", Durant said of the man who spoilt his night.
