Williams leads undermanned Clippers over Warriors

Kevin Durant Golden State Warriors vs Detroit Pistons 08122017

No, it won't be Stephen Curry. He dangled that signature mouthpiece from his teeth in sheer delight. For the season, he's averaging 22.9 PPG, exactly eight more PPG than he averaged last season and nearly 10 PPG above his career average. And he did it on a tidy 16-27 shooting, going 8-16 from three and 10-10 from the free throw line.

However, the Bucks cause some matchup problems if KD moves onto Giannis, so I wouldn't be surprised to see the Warriors utilize the "Death Lineup" with Curry on Bledsoe, Klay on Brogdon, Iguodala on Middleton and Draymond on Henson. Right now they are a game out of the eight-seed, just behind the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Clippers rank second in second chance points per game (14.6) while the Warriors rank 27th in second chance points allowed per game (13.7).

"We still have two All-Stars".

And despite the result going to the Warriors' favor, the Dubs' visit to Milwaukee last season was nearly equally electric and compelling as they edged out the Bucks 124-121, with all four of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Durant and Draymond Green combining for 92 of their 124 points for the game. He's gone over 30 points in six of those seven games and 12 times overall this season.

Security researchers reveal flaw in WhatsApp encryption
While, the group and the chats themselves have a layer of end-to-end encryption , the servers that the chats run on don't. In such a case, it is impossible for them to share details with enforcement agencies that they themselves can not access.

Nuggets: Denver limited its turnovers to 11 after committing a season-high 26 at Sacramento two days earlier that led to 40 Kings points.

Dethroning the Warriors require a strong faith and plenty of hope that Curry and Co. will miss an unlikely ton of shots in the playoffs. That still leads Houston by 3 games in the West. I love being held to that high standard. To be under 30 and do it, that's special to me too. "But to know - to have it in numbers, in black and white - to know that you belong in that group is pretty special to me". Steph Curry turned his ankle in practice, questionable this evening. Point guard Eric Bledsoe has clearly sparked the offense.

If all four players do make it to the All-Star Game and Curry gets to make picks as a team captain, then he may get that chance to get all of his Golden State teammates on the same squad after all. He's a handful for any team, so I don't see that changing against the Warriors. "The rest of us sort of understand and expect him to do what he's going to do".

And once he's hot, every shot is a good one, no matter the distance or means of getting it. 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. The win over Golden State ended a 12-game Los Angeles losing streak to the Warriors and provided an unexpected lift at a time when the Clippers are struggling to field a healthy team.
