Kevin Durant Ejected For 3rd Time In 18 Games

  • The Golden State Warriors don't just want to beat you. They also want to wake you

Golden State earned its 20th win in 21 games against New Orleans by outscoring the Pelicans 37-24 in the final quarter.

At the end of the half, Steph Curry and Durant carried plus-minuses of -25 to the locker room, as a Warriors' defense that looked good on its first three games of a six-game road trip collapsed. As the Warriors continue to pile up wins, they've also had issues of late (and this season) collecting technical fouls, too.

It's unclear what was said here, but Durant thought the officials gave he and Cousins a premature hook.

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

Warriors coach Steve Kerr admitted that the defending world champions are showing a lack of composure.


Despite their inability to overtake Chris Paul and the Houston Rockets, the Warriors' are still only just 0.5 games behind the top seed in the West.

"Every time I got ejected, I make sure it's late in the game", Durant said.

"If it escalates, we got teammates and so many people that can get in between and prevent us from doing anything stupid because we're grown men, we don't want to get into nothing". Here, it looks like Cousins almost head butts Durant. Due to the fact both players were given technicals earlier in the game and this was their second, they were both respectively ejected from the game. Especially somebody like Cousins, we know that he's feisty, we know that he's emotional. "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". "I don't want to get suspended". "We're not composed out there". We're getting way too emotional, myself included. "I'm not messing up like that in the first, second quarter".

Cousins said after Tuesday's practice that he tries to avoid being confrontational when teams push his buttons, but he'll have to do a better job going forward.
