Kevin Durant, are you human?

Kevin Durant dropped 51 points to help the Warriors force OT in Toronto but unfortunately the comeback fell short. The Golden State Warriors lost to the Toronto Raptors 131-128. 

This is Durant's sixth career 50-point game. After setting his season high (44 points) against the Kings on Saturday, he then broke that when he went off against the Magic on Monday when he put up 49 points.... now 51 points. The man can't be stopped. 

Klay Thompson said this could be a finals preview, and it definitely lived up to the hype. The Warriors will meet the Raptors again in a couple weeks on December 12th and guess what? Stephen Curry and Draymond Green should be back and healthy.  

Of course walking away with the W is the goal, but honestly you can't be mad about this loss. The Warriors only lost to the team with the best record in the NBA by three points in OT without two all-stars. Nothing to hang their heads about there.

The Warriors continue their East Coast road trip when they take on the Detroit Pistons this Saturday. Coverage starts with Warriors Live at 2:30 PM and tip-off at 4 PM. Oh yeah, Stephen Curry is supposed to make his return.
