"Back in 2007, many of us took notice of a 6'9" forward out of the University of Texas who began capturing the nation's attention as he was sweeping through awards ceremonies taking home every single player of the year award.
Other than that, he had 3 solid seasons with the Clippers before joining the New York Knicks and getting blocked 4 times in one possession by Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Horace Grant. And superstar guard Stephen Curry will not play because of a right ankle sprain he suffered in practice. Warriors head into Wednesday night with a four game lead. Antetokounmpo is averaging 28.7 points on 55.5 percent shooting, 10 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.6 steals.
However, it hasn't been that easy for Cousins, who is destroying opponents despite not having near as much help around him as Durant.
Veterans Omri Casspi, JaVale McGee and Zaza Pachulia have been consistently dependable in rebounding, setting screens and scoring when the opportunities present themselves.
This story will be updated with quotes and post-game material from the Warriors' locker room at Oracle Arena. But we're not here for the excuses. Steve Kerr lamented his team's lack of "spirit", and that is the best characterization of a listless evening that maybe saw the Dubs looking ahead to a tough road trip with stops in Cleveland and Houston.
Google Doodle marks the 96th Birth Anniversary of Har Gobind Khorana
Khorana's love for science began at an early age and that was thanks to his father who believed in the value of education. This amino acid takes the shape of the protein that tells the code in our genes into every physical element.
"That's why he's a two-time MVP in this league, that's why we have two championships", Green said. I can't believe I found a way to leave Durant off, but.
Going into Thursday, he was 126 points shy of 30,000 for his career.
With his team down 107-105, wanted the Clippers to go for a two-point basket to tie it, only to be overruled by his rookie in the final seconds. But they're missing some key players as well. Between the trade of Chris Paul to the Rockets and the various injuries to Blake Griffin, Danilo Gallinari and Patrick Beverley, the Clippers have been a shell of what they were at the height of the Lob City era. Moreover, Milos Teodosic is dealing with plantar fasciitis. He put up 27 points in the third quarter alone. Golden State covered as an 8-point favorite and the game finished with a total of 226 points, which was just 1 points above the projected point total of 225 points.
"Obviously 50 is a huge number. It's a great accomplishment", Williams said. Perhaps the National Basketball Association veteran is looking for more stability at this point in his career. I still like the Clippers tonight despite the back-to-back as they are playing with confidence and momentum against a Kings squad that has lost five of six. In Wednesday night's 125-106 loss to the Clippers, Durant was superb, needing only 18 shots and 31 minutes to pour in 40 points. He joins Bob McAdoo, Charles Smith and Freeman Williams.
