Milwaukee Bucks vs. Golden State Warriors - 1/12/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Williams scored 27 of his career-high 50 points in the third quarter and the undermanned Los Angeles Clippers beat the Golden State Warriors for the first time in more than three years with a 125-106 win Wednesday that spoiled a milestone night for Durant.

The Warriors have needed his steady hand with playmaking sidekick and Finals MVP Kevin Durant sitting out the past three games with a strained right calf.

Durant now has 20,015 points, but Lou Williams stole this night, refusing to give in despite the Clippers having four starters out before the game started and losing another when C.J. Williams went down.

After sitting out the past three games with a right calf strain, it only took the All-Star forward 16 minutes to score the 25 points needed to achieve the wonderful accomplishment. Williams has been known as one of the most prolific bench scorers in recent National Basketball Association history, but despite this, he's only taken home the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year Award once.

The Golden State Warriors are 5-0 straight up over their last five games and 2-0-1 against the spread over their last three.

"I've been playing with confidence for the past month or so now, so tonight was similar to other nights that I've had", Williams said. "My second year, I wanted to average 25". He has enjoyed reminiscing about all those battles on the court, all those one-on-one scoring duels and all the ups and downs that ultimately ushered him closer to his latest achievement. "I think he has another couple of tests to pass, and we'll just have to wait". I just tried to make good shots. I just feel like I'm always in balance, and that's what helps me get my shot off quick and stay in a solid rhythm through my shot and be able to handle the ball and try to be creative.

Durant told ESPN's Chris Haynes before reaching 20,000 career points: "Man, that's some great company, and there's so many names I never thought I'd be in the same conversation with".

On the television broadcast, Warriors analyst Jim Barnett said the Clippers are "like an expansion team". "I know I'm not going to hear the end of it".
