He hit a three-pointer to potentially bring Golden State to within one point late in the game, but he stepped on the sideline so the shot didn't count. Durant had only produced a combined 27 points over his prior two outings, so Wednesday's outburst was both a welcome sight and somewhat unexpected despite his vast talent.

The Warriors continued their bad habit of digging themselves a huge hole in the first quarter by allowing 40 points to the Blazers in the first period tonight.

Kevin Durant was sensational in defeat, totalling a season-high 50 points in addition to seven rebounds and six assists. The perennial All-Star's 50-point effort was the fifth of his career and first this season, and it came in his first game with more than 20 shot attempts since December 18. Nurkic tops in rebounds with 8.1 while Lilliard leads in assists with 6.5 per game. And Klay Thompson chipped in with 17 points. Even in their wins over the past couple weeks the first quarter has been a major problem, and it cost them tonight.

With the loss, Golden State drops to 44-14 heading into the All-Star break and the Houston Rockets take over first place in the Western Conference.
