Warriors’ Kevin Durant passes Dirk Nowitzki on National Basketball Association playoffs scoring list

Warriors’ Kevin Durant passes Dirk Nowitzki on National Basketball Association playoffs scoring list

Beverley, who was in Durant's face from the opening tip in an attempt to knock the two-time NBA Finals Most Valuable Player off his game, explained what went down before the ejections.

With 4:41 to play, the two got tangled up, with Durant pushing Beverley into the scorer's table.

Like Durant, Beverley said he had fun. "That's his identity", Durant said.

These teams are meeting for just the second time in the postseason after the Clippers took a seven-game series in the first round in 2014 when the California franchises had a deep dislike for each other. And here's venturing a guess to say the Dubs weren't too disappointed to see Kogut left off the list. "I give them a lot of credit".

Game 2 is Monday night at Oracle Arena.


The reserves stepped up for the Clippers with Montrezl Harrell leading with 26 points and Lou Williams tallying 25 points and 9 assists. "Your seventh one is a suspension in the playoffs", Kerr said. He's a helluva defender, he plays hard, we've got a lot of respect for him - but you can not take the bait because that's a bad trade for us.

Cousins, who played his first game of the season January 18 at the Clippers, had nine rebounds and four assists.

Rivers then provided some assistance by backing up his player and ended up being called for a technical foul.

"There's always little things within the game, and so there's always stuff going on out there on the floor", Green said. Stephen Curry had the hot hand as he drained eight 3-pointers on his way to 38 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists, Kevin Durant added 23 points before getting ejected while Draymond Green chipped in with 17 points, seven rebounds and seven assists.

During his first game of the postseason, Curry has passed Ray Allen for the most 3-pointers made in National Basketball Association playoff history.
