Kevin Durant Ejected After Dust-Up With Boogie Cousins

  • WATCH: Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins both tossed

More so than the outcome of a game Golden State won relatively easily, this could have ramifications down the road.

The Warriors have had a player ejected in three straight games with Durant recording three ejections in the past 18 games after just four in the previous 810.

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. Yet Durant assured that he wouldn't allow to get his emotions get the best of him at a critical time in the game.

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.

Curry, who also exited late in the fourth quarter after rolling his ankle, which later required an X-ray following Monday's game, finished with his fourth double-double this season with 31 points and 11 assists.


"I thought he [the referee] just threw us out pretty quick, to be honest", Durant told ESPN after his confrontation with Cousins. But this escalated when, when the ball was dead, Durant walked over and started jawing at Cousins (Draymond Green was the guy with the level head getting between them).

Both players were eventually ejected, with Cousins being tossed and then provoking Durant into an identical fate, and the two All-Stars were not exactly shy in going at one another for all to see. "We're not composed out there".

"We're a championship team", Kerr said.

"I got to be more focused, I got to be more poised", Durant said. "I know I have a reputation in this league and I know I'll never get the benefit of the doubt, so I've just got to keep trying to do the right thing". "We got to be poised and we got to execute out there". For anyone keeping count, this is the second time in three days that Durant has been ejected. We're getting way too emotional, myself included.
