DeMarcus Cousins on altercation with Kevin Durant: 'It sucks it happened'


Durant has had three in the past 18 games, one more than he had in his previous 810. "But we've got to show some poise when things aren't going our way, stop worrying about everything else and just worry about the 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.

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.

We wait to see how the National Basketball Association deals with this and if they'll punish Durant and Cousins any more than just their ejections from the game. But things reached a boiling point in the fourth quarter when Cousins almost head butted Durant to get things really started. 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. "We're not composed out there".

"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". "I thought the league handled it well", Kerr said.

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. We have to be poised and we have to execute out there. "You've got to have your perimeter players play great".

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. We're just talking, getting into's a heated matchup, it was a heated conversation.
