Warriors forward Kevin Durant became the second-youngest player in NBA history to reach 20,000 points Wednesday against the Clippers.

With Stephen Curry (ankle) and Klay Thompson (rest) out of the lineup, Durant was forced to lead the offensive attack, scoring 25 points in the first half.

LeBron James is the only player to reach 20,000 points at a younger age than Durant.

Durant, 29, did most of his damage with the Thunder, but has been scoring at an impressive rate since joining the Warriors before last season. Most impressively, he reached the feat at the second-youngest age despite having elite scorers surrounding him on almost every team he's ever been on throughout his career.

Only 44 players have reached 20,000 points in NBA history.
