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.
While Kevin Durant would go on to net the 20,000th point of his career, Williams dropped 50 on Golden State-including 27 alone in the third quarter.
To put this accomplishment into perspective, Durant is only the fifth player in National Basketball Association history to have scored that many points before turning 30, along with James, Kobe Bryant, Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan.
Durant is averaging 25.9 points per game this season with Golden State, a tick up from the 25.1 points per game he averaged in his first season after leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Durant scored his 25th point on a pull-up crossover midrange jumper. He returned December 30 against the Memphis Grizzlies, played the next five games and scored 176 points.
