  • Kevin Durant got thrown out of the game... again

With just over a minute remaining in Golden State's eventual 125-115 win, Durant and Cousins bumped into each other a bit before Draymond Green and a couple other players came over to separate the two. Durant earned his third ejection in his last 18 games.

The Pelicans big man has developed a reputation for his emotional outbursts on the court and he's already picked up seven technical fouls in the first 24 games of this season.

It's no secret that most teams go into games against the New Orleans Pelicans hoping to get under the skin of DeMarcus Cousins.

The cost of the victory could be critical for Golden State moving forward, as Kerr didn't have much to smile about even though his team improved to 4-0 since leaving Oracle Arena. Every time I get ejected I make sure it's late in the game. "I don't want to get injured". Especially somebody like Cousins, we know that he's feisty, we know that he's emotional.




"I'm not messing up like that in the first or second quarter, I make sure it's late in the game if I want to do something, but I've got to be more focused than that, I've got to be more poised, I can't let anybody take me off my game". According to WVLA sports reporter Morgan Beard, something happened between Durant and Cousins after they left the court that resulted in security having to step in.

But it's a surprising pattern for Durant, who now has been tossed two times in the last four days and leads the National Basketball Association with three ejections through 25 games. "We're not composed out there". Livingston was going to rest Monday anyway, Kerr said Sunday. I've been in the league too long. We've got to be poised and we've got to execute. For anyone keeping count, this is the second time in three days that Durant has been ejected.

"I know I've been through this before on this ankle, and knowing the surgical repairs from like five or six years ago are fine, I should be able to bounce back". We're just talking, getting into it....it's a heated matchup, it was a heated conversation.
