Kevin Durant & DeMarcus Cousins Ejected After On-Court Altercation

Kevin Durant & DeMarcus Cousins Ejected After On-Court Altercation

It was the second time this season that the Warriors had come back from 20 points down or more to claim victory.

Curry finished with 31 points, hitting five triples, and 11 assists for the Warriors (19-6), winners of four straight games.

The Warriors were given three more technical fouls on Monday in their comeback win over New Orleans.

It's unclear what was said here, but Durant thought the officials gave he and Cousins a premature hook. "He's got to be able to understand that teams can't physically play him inside, so they're going to do everything they can to emotionally get him off his game".

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. I make sure it's late in the game if I want to do something.

It's possible Durant and Cousins could be assessed $25,000 fines for failing to leave the court in a timely manner, but we'll have to wait and see what the league chooses to do. 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.

Cousins has always been a magnet for technical fouls, but at that moment of the game both he and Durant should have been smarter about this. "We're not composed out there", he told Mercurynews.com. We have to be poised and we have to execute out there. Durant is doing too much to show the league, he isn't a cupcake and a softy. "I'm not messing up like that in the first or second quarter-make sure it's late in the game if I want to do something". We're just talking, we're just getting into it.

During the Warriors' 125-115 win over the Pelicans last night at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Durant managed to go 8-of-21 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line in 35 minutes, scoring 19 points with seven rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block, one 3-pointer and six turnovers. "I think it was the right decision, and we move on".
