Durant, Beverley ejected after constant trash talk

Durant, Beverley ejected after constant trash talk

The Warriors and Clippers will play Game 2 on Monday, April 15. "That's two technicals, your seventh one is a suspension in the playoffs".

The first set of double technicals came with five minutes left in regulation and the Warriors holding a steady lead. "He's got four to play with". The two players were jawing at each the whole way through, whenever they were checked into the game by their coaches - Beverley playing for 31 minutes in a losing effort, Durant one better, at 32.

This was Durant's second career postseason ejection, whereas, it's Beverley's third. "We talked about it the last couple of days".

When asked if he was egging on Durant, Beverley insisted he was just being himself. The Clippers have made a lot of good trades this year. "It was fun out there", Beverley said. With the Warriors on a secondary break midway through the 4th quarter, the Clippers defense collapsed with Klay Thompson driving into the paint. He's a hell of a defender who plays hard.

Stephen Curry sizzled with 38 points - spiced up by 8 three-pointers that gave him the record for highest total triples made in National Basketball Association playoffs history - as the Golden State Warriors rolled past the Los Angeles Clippers, 121-104, in Game 1 of their Western Conference series on Saturday, April 13 (Sunday, April 14, Manila time).

Durant, though, also had a record night after amassing 3,679 points to pass Dirk Nowitzki (3,663) for 15th place on the career playoff scoring list.

Draymond Green got Golden State going by making all five of his shots in the first quarter en route to 17 points to go with seven assists and seven rebounds, while Durant scored 23 points as the Warriors ran their postseason winning streak to seven games.
