LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Kevin Durant scored 38 points in the first half of Game 6, tied for the second-most points in a half in a playoff game.

Durant was 12 of 17 from the floor, made all 10 of his free throws and sank four 3-pointers Friday night to lead the Golden State Warriors to a 72-53 advantage over the LA Clippers.

The record of 39 points was set by Golden State's Eric Floyd against the Los Angeles Lakers on May 10, 1987, in a second-round series.

Durant finished with 50 points as Golden State closed out the series 4-2.
