As expected, Kevin Durant achieved a career milestone against the Clippers on Wednesday night. With about two minutes remaining in the second quarter, KD sank a shot from the left wing to become the second-youngest player in NBA history to record 20,000 career points. The only player to ever reach the 20,000-point mark quicker than KD was LeBron James, who hit the mark back in 2013 while playing with the Heat.
The Los Angeles Clippers have agreed to trade perennial all-star point guard Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets, according to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski. In return, the Clippers receive Patrick Beverley, Lou Williams, Sam Dekker, and a top-three protected 2018 first-round pick.
