As it turns out, they only player they needed Wednesday night was Lou Williams.
Williams shot 16 for 27 with a career-best eight 3-pointers and made all 10 of his free throws.
Durant told ESPN it is a humbling experience but admitted it is hard to wrap his head around being included with the other greats who have accomplished the feat. I'm telling you, man, it's never been a goal of mine to count how many points I have. 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. "Even if he didn't have 32 points and nine assists, what he brings to our offence and all the attention that he draws that gets me open shots ... he creates a lot of mismatches on the floor for the defence".
Williams was so proud of his individual achievement that he wore #52 in his second stint with the Cavaliers, which in itself is a attractive set of coincidences, seeing that 52 was just his old number 25 backwards, which in turn happens to be retired and rendered unusable by the Cavs for shooting legend Mark Price. "But this one was pretty good". Several minutes later, as concerned fans waited on the edge of their seats to see if he was okay, Griffin was able to stand up and was taken into the locker room where he received treatment.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Tyrone Wallace intercepted a pass at midcourt and drove in for a dunk with 10.9 seconds left, moments after what looked like a costly turnover by Lou Williams, and Los Angeles held off Sacramento after blowing a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter.
The Warriors were missing their starting backcourt - Klay Thompson had the night off and Stephen Curry was out with a sprained right ankle. The star guard has averaged 35.2 points per game over the first five games since his return while the team has averaged 126.4 points per game over that stretch. Then the biggest blow of them all when Curry tweaked his ankle during the morning shootaround and was ruled out. At 29 years old, he would become the second-youngest player to reach that mark, behind only LeBron James.
"It's tough. You just keep dropping guys every game", Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.
"That's par for the course for our team this year", Griffin said. "He was scoring off of everything".
